In daily life, looking for parking spaces tend to make people feel irritable, depressed, and sometimes even spend more time than the actual driving time. However, the fact is that some vehicles often pass the roadside vacant parking spaces, but the actual need not stop there. So if these vehicles can inform the other drivers, where the size of the vacant parking spaces Sensor and the specific location, the situation will not be much better? And that's exactly what Mercedes-Benz and Bosch are in joint research projects. The two sides are testing a new community parking intelligent service that will allow the parking lot to find the process to become simpler and quicker. The project has been piloted in Stuttgart, which includes a variety of different Mercedes-Benz test vehicles. The vehicle sensors allow these vehicles to generate relevant data for roadside parking spaces and provide and receive these data through the communication interface.
Almost every Mercedes-Benz car through the intelligent network to achieve interconnection. As long as the appropriate sensors are loaded, they can generate data during 'driving'. And then use the data for the next step, that is, quickly identify the available parking spaces. This community Suction Control Valve parking pattern, in fact, is to find the parking space for the work of the distribution, this will help us greatly shorten the time to find parking spaces, and can guide the driver directly to the available parking spaces.
Develop new uses with existing sensors
The body-mounted ultrasonic sensor can scan the parking spaces at a rate of 55 km per hour. When they are positioned to the available parking spaces, the collected data will be analyzed by the Daimler vehicle backstage through a secure data link to Bosch's Internet of Things platform. And then use the data mining technology to confirm whether the identified area Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor is indeed available parking spaces. If the vehicle continues to provide information, suggesting a busy road there is a vacancy, but this vacancy is also likely to be just an empty lane, but can not be used for parking.
In the first phase of the pilot project, the system was able to calculate the possibility of finding a vacant parking space in an open neighborhood. At the next stage, once such a community parking pattern is more widely used, it can even report real-time availability and usable area of roadside parking spaces. In addition, by adding more information about the available parking spaces, additional features can be achieved, such as the identification Temperature Sensor of the parking spaces in the public car park, then the car screen or in the 'Mercedes me' APP will show a number Parking map. So, the driver needs to do is choose this destination, and then follow the navigation directly to the parking spaces.
Parking zero pressure to help drivers reduce the trouble, quickly find the right parking spaces can not only help the driver save time and gasoline, but also ease their tension, while the surrounding environment is also beneficial. By combining with Speed Sensor a parking assist system similar to the 'Remote Park Pilot' (now available for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class), the community parking model can significantly reduce driver's downtime.
