    • Renovating the Hopkins parking structure
    • Goal
      The team goal is to redesign the Hopkins parking structure
      Promote an economical and efficient solution to control for
      Flow of traffic
      Minimize parking space looking time
      Minimize wait time in finding a parking space
      Ultimately, to inform the driver of the current “status” in regards to available spaces in the parking garage
    • Questions
      What strategies do people use to find a parking spot?
      How can we optimally combine technology and the current strategies that people use in their search for parking?
    • Problems in finding parking
      Waste $$, time, gas and mileage
      Causes students/staff to be late for class/work.
      Causes traffic in the lots
      Causes road rage (true story)
      Causes excess pollution
    • THE Point
      The current structure of the parking system is both inefficient and fails to meet the needs of the representative users at UCSD.
    • Our plan in remedying the problem
      Use guidelines we have collaboratively decided upon to determine which individuals are the best interview candidates for this project
      Aim is to collect 10 – 15 interviews
      Execute contextual inquiry and interview drivers who park at Hopkins (Undergraduates, Graduates, Faculty, and Staff)
      Use data collected to create an affinity board highlighting the needs of the users (and brainstorming possible solutions)
    • issues we still need to address
      Gathering the actual data to formulate a concrete plan to implement a possible solution
      Surveys (to select best interviewee), Interviews (to pinpoint needs of users), Online resources & Parking Database (to gain additional information)
      As a group we still need to assign responsibilities to each member
      Put together our affinity diagram
    • What we’ve done so far
      Investigated potential solutions:
      information board
      pricing, the logistics of how it is set up, one example: http://technologyinterface.nmsu.edu/Fall09/Fall09/012.pdf
      Claims: this system helped user reduce the wasting time of search parking lot and also improve the parking lot utilization.
      Looked at UCSD Parking database http://parking.ucsd.edu/survey/surv.html
      Identified what are the ideal requirements that constitutes an ideal potential interviewee
    • This is a hypothetical solution that we have created to begin the process of reforming the parking system at UCSD – specifically for the centrally-located Hopkins Parking Structure.
      This solution is subject to change and adjustment, depending upon our evaluation and assessment of its adequacy in maximizing parking efficiency.
    • Digital information Board
      Ideally the digital board will include the following data:
      • Number of spaces available
      • Which floor those spaces are in
      • The type of space A, B, S, V
    • Questions or comments
