Inrix has introduced new technology that uses ultrasonic sensors (USS) to scan, collect, and transmit real-time parking occupancy information to help guide drivers to available parking spaces. It will also help to enhance the quality of Inrix Parking.
As the car is moving down the road, USS transmit sound waves and collects data on parked cars and empty spaces. It is then sent anonymously to the Parking Cloud to be analysed and combined with the parking availability prediction engine which determines block-by-block occupancy levels.
The Inrix Parking solution is said to reduce the 17 hours spent per year by drivers searching for parking spaces, which also results in $375 (£276) in wasted time, fuel, and emissions.
Free parking space is a big problem for Europe. The same in Kiev. Mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko announced that in the spring of 2018, we will present the concept of the development of parking in the capital, which will finally bring order to the streets of Kiev. In the city already are working experimental parking zones from Ollie Trans.
