Future Parking

Navigating in the parking garage and other additional services

In this project, funded by the Free State of Saxony with EU funds, robust positioning methods in complex environments (parking garages) for location determination, navigation, handling of logistics tasks and related services in the city of Leipzig are researched. The project partners are developing a wireless sensor network (WSN) and an environmental radar system for this purpose. In this system, the current parking space occupancy and traffic in the parking garage can be determined in real time using appropriate sensor tags that are issued to the vehicles when they enter the parking garage or are permanently installed in the vehicle.

Fields of application

With the help of digital maps and a parking app, vehicles can in future be guided to free parking spaces indoors. In addition, the project partners are also developing further services based on the technology (WSN) such as “reserve, book and pay” for free parking spaces or find-my-car services. The developed technology (WSN) can later be integrated cost-effectively into other existing parking garages, but also underground loading zones or large halls without extensive structural measures, and enables completely new parking garage management. Additional services for logistics applications are being tested as completely new possible uses, such as the placement of mini-hubs in the car park as depots for delivery services with car park-compatible transport vehicles on the last mile.
