Smart Parking Data Analysis and Application
To enhance parking services in Tainan and help drivers find available parking spaces, the Bureau completed the Smart On-Street Parking Billing System (which covers 2000 parking spaces) and set up 6400 parking spaces with ground magnetic sensors in 2020. Smart on-street parking spaces directly feed real-time status information back to Tainan’s Smart Parking Cloud Data Platform which then supplies the dynamic data to the Tainan Parking app. The app displays the latest status of on-street parking spaces on a map which drivers can access via their phones. Furthermore, the Bureau conducts big data analysis on the collected parking data to figure out parking space usage and behavior on different road sections so that they can roll out suitable parking management policies. The public can also consult the available parking space projection map before they arrive at their destination to decide how and where to park.
