Finding a parking space is a nightmare particularly for those who live and work in big cities.
Multi-storey car parks are usually crowded with just a handful of spaces and generally overpriced. On-street parking, on the contrary, is a gamble. TomTom has created a new On-street parking service using data feeds from 25 cities around Europe.
According to Ralf-Peter Schafer: “TomTom On-Street Parking offers drivers peace of mind and a less stressful parking experience, in addition to helping them save time and money.” he added “The service also helps reduce congestion in cities and thus lower CO2 emissions, and enables cities to better understand and manage street parking inventory to improve urban mobility”.
Looking further, this technology could become a standard for autonomous cars.
