Abstract: The bachelor thesis deals with occupancy measurement in Paid Parking Zones (PPZ) in
Prague with system of random monitoring by special vehicles equipped with cameras. It
introduces distinction between immediate occupancy, i.e. the percentage use of parking
spaces in a given area in a given time and effective occupancy, i.e. the percentage use of time
parking capacity in a given time interval. Since the effective occupancy cannot be determined
in real conditions of PPZ by random monitoring, the method of simulation of parking in the
model area was chosen. The model was created based on parameters expected parking time of
visitors and residents and parking interest. The model simulates the use of parking capacity
and its output are simulated effective and immediate occupancy. The basic parameter values
were obtained by analysing the real data for 2018 from PPZ. The goal of the thesis was to
analyse under which conditions and number of measurements, the immediate occupancy is a
good estimate of effective occupancy. In total, 10500 simulations were performed for 21
different parameter combinations resulting in an effective occupancy of about 45%-95%. The
results of the simulation show, that five measurements in one working week are sufficient to
estimate effective occupancy in the same time interval.
