  10. System Benefits
    • Could lower congestion by directing people
    straight to a parking destination.
    • Give BANES additional data to improve city
    traffic flow.
    • Communicate to tourists and residents about
    traffic affecting issues.

  11. Future Roadmap
    • Take this idea and apply it to residential permits.
    • Stop replying on crowdsourcing and add
    sensors for realtime data.
    • Use historic data to predict busy days for early
    commuter warnings.
