Real-time parking events from the Mercedes-Benz vehicle fleet
Our Push API provides you with exact, real-time information on the parking behaviour of the Mercedes-Benz vehicle fleet. This data allows you to gather insights on the parking behaviour and thereby creating more accessible, convenient, and innovative cities.
- Real-time monitoring of parking movements (parking in and out)
- Public or commercial parking space tracking and management
- Predictions of parking requirements
- Improving efficiency and planning of parking and loading zones
- Analysis option with regard to parking preferences
- Reduction of CO2 emissions through reduction of parking lot search traffic
The transmitted data is relevant for a wide variety of evaluations & analyses regarding parking overview, parking space frequency and parking duration.
What data access does the API offer?
Optimize your application, your parking monitoring and planning or generally your infrastructure with the help of these data points:
- Parking events
- GPS position
- Vehicle heading
- Time stamp
- Parking duration
- Approximate vehicle length
Learn more about the API
1. The API at a glance
The data set of Parking Monitoring offers you exact, real-time information on the parking in and out events of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. In addition to the time, duration and GPS location of parking events, this API also informs you about the approximate size of the vehicle.
2. Wide coverage
The transmitted data is relevant for a wide variety of evaluations & analyses regarding parking overview, parking space frequency and parking duration. The data product can also be used for public or commercial parking space tracking and management as well as for fleets with Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Recognition of parking in and out of parking spaces
Definition of parking events
- Park-in events: a car parks when it turns off the engine and stops for more than 2 minutes
- Park-out events: a car drives off after being parked for more than 15 minutes
- Detection of free/occupied parking space through operating the ignition switch for park-in & park-our events
Use case 1: parking space register
Status quo analysis on number and location of parking lots per street segment.
Use case 2: predictive analysis
Use of data to predict parking utilization and parking probabilities based on historical data, dynamic prediction by integrating live data is possible.
Use case 3: real-time data
Integration of live parking data (park in/park out & USS* data) into existing systems via API usage.
