3:50 PM The Use of Machine Learning to Deliver Predictive Parking to Ease Congestion and Improve Traffic

The Smart Parking program was launched 2 years ago in a bid to reduce congestion, travel times and drive more retail business whilst creating a better experience for citizens on the road. So far it has achieved 90% accuracy by monitoring 5 data categories and using a tree based ensemble learning model. This session will investigate the learning model, identifying scope for improvement and improving data.

  • Identifying the key data categories that will determine occupancy and availability at any given time
  • The impact on the city and local businesses
  • Improving accuracy by accessing more data sets and better quality data
  • Understanding the key insights into human behavior revealed through machine learning
