The Parking Planning service provides parking metadata that is collected from CityIQ’s intelligent nodes installed on all street lights along public roadways or in parking lots. Each time a vehicle enters or leaves a parking space, a timestamped event is created and stored in the Predix cloud. This data can be obtained from a single sensor or a group of sensors, and can provide valuable insights about the parking activity in a given region. The data can also be used to improve traffic and parking convenience.
Well! I forgot to mention that every player is a winner in this game. 🙂 Are you in?
