According to the Department of Transportation, 75 percent of US truck drivers often struggle to find a safe space when it’s time to park up and get some sleep. Instead, after a fruitless search they will keep driving, or park on the hard shoulder or an unsecured site. Both options are incredibly dangerous to the drivers themselves and those they share the road with. Hoping to solve this problem, computer scientists at the University of Minnesota Center for Transportation Studies have developed a monitoring system, which provides a real-time tally of available spaces.
