Introduction - ParkNet Drive-by Parking Monitoring o  Uses ultrasonic sensor  attached to the side of cars o Detects parked cars and  vacant spaces Attaches to vehicles that  comb through a city (taxi,  police, etc.) Location accuracy based on  GPS and environmental  fingerprinting

Introduction - Objectives Demonstrating  the feasibility of the mobile sensing  approach including the design, implementation and  evaluation of the system Proposing and evaluating a method of environmental  fingerprinting to increase location accuracies Showing that if the mobility system were currently attached  to operating taxis, it would operate with enough samples to  determine parking availability

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
