Online parking application

Your online parking solution for everyday drivers.

Project Description

With the growing popularity of paid car parking in rural and urban areas across Ireland, we can see some simple issues that many people may face every day when they go to pay for their parking ticket. In some areas there remains a scarcity of ticket machines and with money becoming more and more digital every day, coins are not as widely used anymore and not all machines support card payment leaving it awkward for drivers to quickly pay for their parking ticket. Therefore, we intend to be a part of the solution to this problem by creating a simple online car parking pay system where a user can quickly pay for their parking ticket online.  As we investigated this issue through methods of research an example of a problem we encountered was the possible difficulty some of the older community might find with using our service if not familiar with technology. But with this type of service we created, it would be helpful to people who regularly pay for their parking as we offer a login and register option with saved card and car details, add multiple cars to your account, top up your metre option and check the remaining amount of time left on your ticket all from your account on the web application. Through the research and evaluation, we found that this service would be beneficial to regular car parkers.

Project Findings

After asking participants to partake in surveys and testing, we found that our application helped everyday drivers in their quest to pay for their parking tickets a lot quicker and easier.
