Applying data science to find parking

Sometimes arriving at a destination isn’t the end of a journey. In a busy area with limited parking, finding a spot can add considerable time and stress onto the end of a trip.

Help drivers find a parking spot faster and easier with HERE Parking, a connected service that lets drivers improve their chances of locating public places to park ahead of time on streets, in garages and parking lots.

Parking doesn’t need to be complicated or unpredictable

Parking personalized

With time, HERE Parking learns drivers‘ preferences for off-street parking options (price versus walking distance), to deliver the most relevant options to drivers as they reach their destination. HERE enables OEMs to differentiate their brand and offer more personalized navigation experiences to their customers.

A more economical way to park

HERE Parking helps drivers save money by displaying pricing information directly in their vehicles. By predicting where spots are available, drivers spend less time, and gas, circling around. The service also notes parking regulations for a given area, helping drivers avoid rule violations.

Robust coverage, and still growing

Being a parking data aggregator, HERE is striving to increase the coverage of its parking service for its automotive customers. Currently available in Europe, Americas, APAC countries, our coverage keeps growing day by day.

Plan journeys more efficiently

Drivers often know their ETA but what they tend to forget is the estimated time it will take to park at their destination. Our historical time-to-park estimates help to improve that, enabling drivers to be more efficient.

How HERE Parking works

data collection

Data collection

From HERE TRUE vehicles collecting data from on-street parking zones and off-street parking garages, to aggregating data from parking service providers and city.

data analytics

Data analytics

Captured data is analyzed to remove duplicate POIs. We differentiate between garage entrances for cars and pedestrians. We use historical data from connected cars in order to create on-street-time-to-park estimates and parking availability index.

real time availability

Real-time availability

In addition to relying on static and historical data, the HERE cloud captures information about free parking spots both on-street (using data captured by vehicle or road sensors) and in parking garages in real-time.

Under the hood

HERE Parking is made from our On-Street and Off-Street Parking RESTful APIs to give drivers a complete view of their parking options.

The HERE On-Street Parking API uses both historical and real-time data to predict where a driver is most likely to find a parking spot, how long they’ll be searching and what restrictions may apply.

The HERE Off-Street Parking API adds the availability of nearby parking facilities with pricing, restrictions and other useful information drivers need when choosing a spot.
