18th Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) World Conference (October 2011)

A demonstration of the pilot project on parking availability within Pittsburgh’s Cultural District was showcased at the 18th ITS World Conference in Orlando Florida. The deliberation centered on the project’s unique characteristics that include the collaborative efforts of funders, academia, nonprofit and for-profit entities that were involved in the project, the environment in which the product was deployed and the richness of the data from which the prediction model and the robust evaluation strategy drew upon. Preliminary results from the evaluation and next steps to be taken for a full project implementation were also discussed.
