AI in urban test: Fraunhofer IAO and the City of Karlsruhe explore the management of parking in residential areas

Using AI to measure the demand for parking space

Press release / January 29, 2021

How many cars park on a street at any one time? Are there enough spaces for all the cars that habitually park there? Or might it be an idea to create a residential parking zone? To answer these questions, municipalities have to invest a lot of time and effort in counting vehicles and investigating the situation on the ground. In a joint project with the City of Karlsruhe, Fraunhofer IAO is now exploring the use of AI to measure and manage the demand for parking space.
