Problem – Parking is an underlying strain on New York City that affects all aspects of the City’s infrastructure and encumbers the lives of its inhabitants. To address such issues, a practical solution should be implemented to alleviate the burden parking poses on drivers.
Approach to Solution – Our proposed solution is Spotty, a platform that aims to inform users of the most optimal place to park according to their desired destination. This would improve New York City’s drivers’ experiences by mitigating the overall energy and time spent searching for elusive parking spaces. Utilizing real-time live data analyzed by IBM Watson in collaboration with the Department of Transportation, Spotty proposes a solution to economic, social, and environmental barriers that parking precipitates.
