My Parking Buddy is a tool to create efficiency in parking and transportation, which would empower students to collaborate, develop interpersonal communication skills, and maximize happiness through selfless act of kindness. It is designed to help user save time and stress through effective use of buddy system. For example, Dav arrives at 11:15 am at East Parking Structure (He has a class at 11:30 am). Tanya leaves school at 11:30 am from East Parking Structure (Her class ended at 11:15 am). Then ideally, Dav and Tanya would make perfect parking buddies. Dav and Tanya have 15 minutes (11:15 am minus 11:30 am = 15 minutes) to collaborate (via texting) and locate Tanya's car to exchange parking space.
