Daniel Ayala, CTS Fellow and PhD candidate, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, will present a seminar entitled "The Parking Slot Assignment Game" in Room 1000 SEO at 2:30 p.m., Friday, May 13th
Finding parking can be a major hassle for drivers in some urban environments. With the advent of location based services and wireless sensors, mobile device applications are arising that assist drivers in finding open parking slots. Vehicular parking can be viewed as a competition for resources (parking spaces) amongst a set of travelers. Based on this competition we seek to analyze vehicular parking in a game-theoretic framework. Given a set of open parking spaces, what are the strategies that a driver should employ to minimize the time it takes to find an open parking slot? In this work we propose parking slot assignment games and analyze them to compute strategies that answer the preceding question. Biography:
