Parking No Longer an Issue
Driving around, trying to find a parking space can prove to be so frustrating, especially if you’re getting late for something important. You needn’t worry now and as a technology has been developed by Streetline to overcome this issue. A new technology based on wireless sensors has been introduced to make it easier to find parking spaces especially during the rush hours.
This technology, known as bump, has been programmed by a group of researchers from the University of California. This is definitely a breakthrough for all drivers, as they will now be able to sense free parking spaces before actually having to visit them. The bump is made to be installed adjacent to all the parking spaces in the city, i.e. every parking space will have one of these.
The bump works by storing the data of how many parking spaces are free in the parking lot where it is installed. It then transmits this information to the central management office via wireless media. The data is then broadcast-ed over the internet so that it can be accessed by all drivers, through their wireless devices like mobile phones and PDAs.
The biggest advantage of installing this device is that it does need any form of heavy repair and maintenance costs. The bumps will used for field testing soon. Its performance thereafter will decide if it should be installed across other cities or not, but the idea behind this concept and service is absolutely fantastic.
