Searching for a parking spot in urban areas is often a time-consuming process. In the fact, about one third of the traffic in city centers is spent on finding a parking spot. In addition, a barely calculable search time has a negative effect on Park & Ride. The basis of the PAMIR project is the novel self-powered sensor of the startup partner ParkHere for determining the occupancy status of single parking spots. The overall objective is to enable a more realistic journey planning when switching from a car to a different means of transport and to enable a more comfortable traveling by providing appropriate support (e.g. navigation to a specific parking spot). This will be made possible by the combination of microscopic parking data with a macroscopic forecast of the local parking situation and parking spot reservation. The use cases not only include public transportation but carpooling as well. With the help of volunteers, the improved mobility services will be finally evaluated.
