Challenge

Searching for parking in congested London is notoriously challenging. Not only is the traffic overwhelming, but the colored curbs have specific meaning with different rules depending on the time of day. To address this issue, AppyParking decided to create a mobile app that helps drivers across the United Kingdom understand parking regulations and find open spaces. The app serves as a comprehensive database for parking information.

Solution

The solution provides rich, reliable data that’s accessible via a user-friendly interface. The app pulls data in varying formats from many sources, so the team created a Parking Platform, which converts different formats into a usable API. That data is integrated and layered on top of Google Maps using Google Places Autocomplete API for Android, iOS and the web. The app color codes parking spots to show drivers where there’s free parking, where restrictions apply and where special types of spaces – such as electric-car charging and motorbike spots – are located. For example, red means restricted, and green means free.

Fordele

  • Help drivers find real-time available parking spots in congested London areas and show general parking information across 10 nationwide cities
  • Show drivers where parking is free, restrictions apply and special types of spaces – such as electric-car charging and motorbike spots
  • Allow drivers to quickly and easily navigate to available spaces
