How does Find & Park work?
When the function is enabled, the streets are displayed on the map in one of 5 colours. Each colour indicates the level of chance of finding an available parking space there. We collect the data required to calculate this probability via sensors that we attach to vehicle fleets that are already in the city (e.g. taxis).
Cities are highly dynamic and the occupancy of parking spaces changes constantly. However, streets do have individual occupancy patterns, which we include in our calculations. Our statistical model is therefore more useful for the driver in practice than a real-time display of parking spaces, which only show a short time window in which a parking space is actually available. Because this information is already out of date before you reach the parking space.
