The mapping of parking spaces with scan cars in the eUVM project has kicked off. Since the beginning of May, the electrically powered cars are on Berlin’s streets to record the available public parking spaces By collecting partial number plates, it is also possible to determine the number of free parking spaces at different times of the day and the parking duration. In the upcoming months, the entire area within the S-Bahn ring and neighbouring areas in Tempelhof and Wedding are surveyed successively. Of particular interest are areas where parking zones will be introduced soon, e.g. at Leopoldplatz, in the Brüsseler Kiez and at Tempelhof City Hall. Here, research will be conducted on how the introduction of paid parking spaces affects parking space use.
