Title: PARKING SPACE ROUTING
Abstract:
One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for parking space routing. For example, parking data for a parking region, such as a parking lot, may be obtained from one or more data sources (e.g., vehicle sensor data, a parking lot camera, parking meter transaction data, etc.). Routes from a current location of a vehicle to available parking spaces within the parking region may be computed. The routes may be ranked based upon various criteria, such as convenience, congestion, travel time, travel distance, a parking space fill order, etc. A route, having a rank above a threshold (e.g., a highest ranked route), may be provided to a driver of the vehicle, such as through a vehicle navigation unit, a mobile device, a wearable device, etc. The route may be provided to autonomous driving functionality of the vehicle for automatic routing and navigation of the vehicle to the parking space.
