  1. 4.

    The colour of the top bar is a visual indicator

    of how busy the car park is, based on recent reports.

    Getting Reliable Information • Crowdsourcing car parking information might not

    actually work. • Bring council staff onboard to reliably collect the information.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
