Method And System For Managing Parking Spaces In The Context Of Automated Vehicle Rental, And Vehicle Rental Facility
Abstract
The invention relates to a method (200) for managing parking spaces in the context of automated rental of vehicles offered for rent at a plurality of so-called rental sites, each of said rental sites including at least one parking space, said method (200) being characterized in that it includes the following steps for at least one rental site: determining (202) a so-called availability data item relating to the existence or non-existence of an available parking space at said rental site, transmitting (212, 218) said availability data item to at least one vehicle being rented, and displaying (220) said availability data item for said at least one vehicle. The invention likewise relates to a system implementing such a method and to a use of such a method and such a system for automated vehicle rental.

To facilitate seeking and driving to a parking space in a vehicle, the vehicle is equipped with a navigation system which, when a target parking space has been entered, establishes a radio connection to a server, calls up parking space occupancy data stored in the server, and transmits them visually and/or audibly to the driver. Once a target parking space has been entered, the navigation system calls up the data needed for driving to the target parking space from the server and guides the drive...

A monitoring system for a parking space includes a number of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, a monitor, a data transceiver, and a data center. The monitor corresponds to one of the parking spaces and is positioned in the parking space. When the monitor identifies an RFID tag within the parking space, the monitor records an occupied state of the parking space. When the monitor identifies the RFID tag is no longer within the parking space, the monitor records a vacant state of the park...

A reservation changing system provides diverse services. A memory card 200 obtains, via a mobile telephone 400, a distance from a present location to a boarding station for a train for which a reservation has been made, and judges whether to perform a train reservation change search depending on the relationship between the obtained distance and a time remaining until a departure time of the train. When it is judged that a reservation change search is to be performed, the memory card 200 obtains...
