Detroit Smart Parking Lab (DSPL), hosted at Bedrock’s Assembly Garage in Corktown, is an open innovation and collaboration site open to the mobility industry for real-world testing for parking-related mobility, logistics and electric vehicle charging.

The work at the Detroit Smart Parking Lab examines ways to improve customer experiences and the efficient movement of vehicles and goods in defined spaces. This includes examples such as:

  • Consumers looking for a parking space;
  • The servicing and charging a vehicle while at a parking garage;
  • The return of a rental vehicle;
  • Logistics related to last mile delivery;
  • Video as a Sensor to inform applications and services;
  • And much more…


The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and its Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME) are offering technology grants to organizations of all sizes for onsite testing. More information on funding can be found on the Michigan Mobility Funding Platform.
