The App Parkineers in the Media

  • Date: 26.10.2017



Parkineers - the continuation of our research project ParKing - has raised great interest in the media.

The project that aims to create an interactive map of on-street parking spaces by using gamified crowdsourcing has recently been a topic in several newspapers and radio interviews. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) introduces the project as a successful example of gamification in a critical discussion of the trend. The German public broadcaster Deutschlandfunk has aired a contribution about the project of our researcher Benedikt Morschheuser in their science series at the 20.04.2017 and another feature in a comprehensive discussion about gamification at the 26.08.2017. Furthermore, Parkineers has been of interest to the regional newspaper Badische Neue Nachrichten which covered the subject in their issue of the 30.09.2017.
