  2. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

  3. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...
