Parking Pioneer

As most car sharing services calculate their fees based on the time or distance a user is travelling, looking for a parking place can become quite expensive. Parking Pioneer is prototype for a crowd based parking space finder. Users of the app can earn points by rating the current parking space situation in their area. This information is used to create an up to date heat map, highlighting streets where it is easy to find a parking space.

This app was developed for the Hackathon App@Night in cooperation with DriveNow/Sixt. The app was announced to be one of the winners of the Hackathon.
