Here you can find a collection of questions we’ve been asked by our customers.
Based on Mercedes-Benz parking events and satellite imagery, it calculates whether on-street parking is allowed at a specific location. A confidence level is also given for this. Accordingly, the location of a parking space is derived from the position of the Mercedes-Benz Park Events and the detected parking area in the satellite images. GPS inaccuracy is not considered.
No, the model quality depends on various factors, e.g. event density, image quality, timeliness of the image data.
By statistical modeling of occupancy based on parking and exit events.
A higher event density and a heterogeneous use of the parking areas (by different vehicles) leads to the best results.
