Problem #1: Drivers with disabilities may voluntarily limit their mobility to certain areas because they are not sure if they can park their car near where they need to go.

Problem #2: Drivers with electric vehicles may leave those cars at home and drive their gasoline powered vehicles instead because they don’t know where the EV charging stations are, and whether there is space available.

Solution tested: Parking sensors embedded into EV parking and Disabled Driver parking spaces; Mobile App;

Questions to be answered: Where are these spaces? How often are they utilized? How long is each space occupied? Which days and times are busiest? Which times are least? What’s the best way to communicate parking space availability? How will parking space utilization change with if we can share this information with drivers?
