  • 1. Renovating the Hopkins parking structure
  • 2. Goal
    The team goal is to renovate 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
  • 3. 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?
  • 4. 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
  • 5. THE Point
    The current structure of the parking system is both inefficient and fails to meet the needs of the representative users at UCSD.
  • 6. 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)
  • 7. 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
  • 8. What we’ve done so far
    Investigated potential solutions:
    information board
    pricing, the logistics of how it is set up, one example:
    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
    Identified what are the ideal requirements that constitutes an ideal potential interviewee
  • 9. Have Information Available to Students
  • 10. Having information available to students
  • 11. Used data trends with the spots available online to determine ratio of interviewee selection
    The result
  • 12. Criteria for Interview Candidate
    • UCSD Affiliate
    • 13. Commutes to school consistently either MWF, Tu/Th.
    • 14. Parks on main campus (Hopkins, Gilman, Pangea)
    • 15. Specifically, actively searches for parking at Hopkins
    Visitor (2)
    Faculty (2)
    Staff (3)
    Student (6)
    Before parking charges beginning (1)
    Arrives After 4:30 (1)
  • 16. 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.
  • 17. Digital information Board
    Ideally the digital board will include the following data:
    • Number of spaces available
    • 18. Which floor those spaces are in
    • 19. The type of space A, B, S, V
  • Questions or comments
    Thank you !
