Using price-sensitive algorithms that vary San Francisco meter costs based on occupancy rate of a block’s parking spots, and by analyzing 4.6M data points, University of Michigan professor Robert Hampshire found time spent cruising for spots dropped significantly, drivers parked more efficiently, and average meter revenue increased.
The ORFE PhD graduate spoke extensively on Smart Cities: Data and Decision Science for Parking Management.
