High demand for parking generated by the large numbers of people simultaneously looking for parking within the same area often makes it tedious and difficult to find a parking spot, leading to delays and frustration. Individual drivers typically attempt to find a parking spot closest to an event venue. Finding a parking spot via such an approach requires luck and timing. Many drivers tend to overestimate their luck, thus adding to congestion and wasting more time in the process of finding a parking space. To address these issues, this disclosure describes techniques that use real-time information on available parking spaces to direct drivers to an optimal parking spot in the vicinity of their destination. The state of the system is monitored and updated in real-time to predict the availability of parking spaces with high accuracy.
