Final presentation 102c

  1. 1. Renovating the Hopkins parking structure <br />
  2. 2. Goal <br />The team goal is to renovate the Hopkins parking structure<br />Promote an economical and efficient solution to control for <br />Flow of traffic <br />Minimize parking space looking time <br />Minimize wait time in finding a parking space <br />Ultimately, to inform the driver of the current “status” in regards to available spaces in the parking garage <br />
  3. 3. Questions<br />What strategies do people use to find a parking spot? <br />How can we optimally combine technology and the current strategies that people use in their search for parking?<br />
  4. 4. Problems in finding parking <br />Waste $$, time, gas and mileage<br />Causes students/staff to be late for class/work. <br />Causes traffic in the lots <br />Causes road rage (true story)<br />Causes excess pollution<br />
  5. 5. THE Point<br />The current structure of the parking system is both inefficient and fails to meet the needs of the representative users at UCSD. <br />
  6. 6. Our plan in remedying the problem <br />Use guidelines we have collaboratively decided upon to determine which individuals are the best interview candidates for this project <br />Aim is to collect 10 – 15 interviews <br />Execute contextual inquiry and interview drivers who park at Hopkins (Undergraduates, Graduates, Faculty, and Staff)<br />Use data collected to create an affinity board highlighting the needs of the users (and brainstorming possible solutions)<br />
  7. 7. issues we still need to address <br />Gathering the actual data to formulate a concrete plan to implement a possible solution <br />Surveys (to select best interviewee), Interviews (to pinpoint needs of users), Online resources & Parking Database (to gain additional information) <br />As a group we still need to assign responsibilities to each member<br />Put together our affinity diagram <br />
  8. 8. What we’ve done so far <br />Investigated potential solutions: <br />information board<br />pricing, the logistics of how it is set up, one example: http://technologyinterface.nmsu.edu/Fall09/Fall09/012.pdf<br />Claims: this system helped user reduce the wasting time of search parking lot and also improve the parking lot utilization.<br />Looked at UCSD Parking database http://parking.ucsd.edu/survey/surv.html<br />Identified what are the ideal requirements that constitutes an ideal potential interviewee <br />
  9. 9. Have Information Available to Students <br />
  10. 10. Having information available to students<br />
  11. 11. Used data trends with the spots available online to determine ratio of interviewee selection <br />The result <br />
  12. 12. Criteria for Interview Candidate <br /><ul><li>UCSD Affiliate
  13. 13. Commutes to school consistently either MWF, Tu/Th.
  14. 14. Parks on main campus (Hopkins, Gilman, Pangea)
  15. 15. Specifically, actively searches for parking at Hopkins </li></ul>Visitor (2) <br />Faculty (2)<br />Staff (3) <br />Student (6) <br />Before parking charges beginning (1)<br />Arrives After 4:30 (1) <br />
  16. 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. <br />This solution is subject to change and adjustment, depending upon our evaluation and assessment of its adequacy in maximizing parking efficiency. <br />
  17. 17. Digital information Board <br />Ideally the digital board will include the following data:<br /><ul><li>Number of spaces available
  18. 18. Which floor those spaces are in
  19. 19. The type of space A, B, S, V</li></li></ul><li>Questions or comments <br />Thank you ! <br />
