PATTERN RECOGNITION AND SIGNPOSTING OF CAR PARKS

This idea concerns the availability and management of parking spaces. Pattern recognition is currently being studied by EEMCS/CTIT. It is hard to think of a better pattern than a car park. Place a camera that recognizes free parking spaces and transmits them wirelessly on the Spiegel and other buildings. If you truly want to feature news, then have one or more drones continuously fly a fixed path over all campus car parks for the same purpose. Signposting to free parking spots could be linked to this. Naturally, these drones will be automated in such a way that they can lift off, land, refuel, et cetera without requiring human assistance.
