About this project

Have a private garage? List it on Spotter and make money by renting it to drivers! Looking for a parking spot? Use Spotter and discover available parking spots near you! 

Spotter differs from existing solutions in showing drivers private garages listed by Spotter users, showing public garages near the drivers' location and predicting the availability of on-street parking spots. If you're driving and looking for a parking spot, Spotter is your one-stop app for conveniently discovering a parking spot. In addition to discovering parking spots on the go, you can also book parking spots in advance!

Spotter relies on its extensive user network to list private garage spaces and uses an advanced information retrieval algorithm to predict availability of on-street parking spots.

We are a dedicated team of students from Carnegie Mellon University, with years of experience in mobile app development and come from backgrounds in computer science, human computer interaction, information systems, design, and product development. We strongly believe that Spotter will significantly improve the parking seeking experience.

However, a project at this scale is incomplete without your help. You can help in Spotter’s development by contributing to our project, or by becoming a parking spot provider.

We appreciate all your help and support.

Risks and challenges

We will need to secure the remainder of the funding for additional sources, but Spotter is committed to completing this project.
