'Volksparking' Maximizes Space for Playing Basketball in the City

In order to help people continue to play basketball in the city as it becomes more and more crowded, Volkswagen created 'Volksparking.'

Volksparking is a unique mobile basketball hoop that is set up along a track above a parking lot. With sensors, it is able to detect when a parking space is empty and sets itself up there so that a small game of basketball can be played between friends. When the space is about to become occupied by a vehicle, the smart hoop simply moves to another open parking space in the lot.

Since Volkswagen has always branded itself as the "People's Automobile," this initiative is a clever way to show that when space is used smartly, the city can be shared by all of its inhabitants fairly.
