Parking Pressure Data Challenge

A startup programme on societal challenges

In recent years, the MRDH has successfully collaborated with YES!Delft. In 2019 the MRDH started a new program with YES!Delft. The aim is to link the societal challenges of the 23 municipalities to the innovative technological solutions from startups.  The municipalities act as the requesting party. This means that they are involved during the process from formulation of challenge to development and testing of new technologies in practice. 

Parking Pressure Data Challenge

The first challenge is the Parking Pressure Data Challenge and is a request of the cities The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg.

The challenge is to map the parking pressure for (problem areas within) different municipalities, where parking pressure consists of two components: parking capacity and current occupancy. Municipalities distinguish between occupation in different periods: morning / afternoon / evening / night. 

Existing solutions are too inaccurate, too expensive or not scalable enough. 

The solution must be AVG proof

Startups can also supply 1 of the 2 facets (capacity or occupation). Occupancy has priority over capacity. Being able to see the occupation in real time is not a requirement, but very desirable.

What you win

The winning startup(s) can have a pilot with one or both of the municipalities!
