The objective of the EMPARCO (Efficient Management of PArking under Constraints) project is to develop solutions for the management of large­-scale parking facilities and depots (for either passenger vehicles or commercial fleets) under constraints including:

  • near­-capacity demand
  • temporally concentrated arrivals/departures
  • need for emergency evacuation

An integrated methodological framework will be developed that will operationalize a cycle created from the following main methodological and technological challenges/ components:

  • Microscopic parking facility simulation to provide the modeling and simulation capabilities to accurately model the required scenarios for the execution of this project, both in terms of the supply- and the demand-side.
  • Novel methodologies and algorithms for vehicle localization support, including data fusion of various data sources
  • Information generation and dissemination and control
  • Strategy generation for the optimal parking management schemes
Our project is supported by the Action: ARISTEIA-II (Action’s Beneficiary: General Secretariat for Research and Technology), co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund – ESF) and Greek national funds.
