These Bosch sensors make parking your car a lot less of a hassle. These sensors work in conjunction with a system that uses data from parking spaces directly to inform drivers where they can park.

Other parking information systems tend to use data from cars to help drivers figure out the most likely locations of vacant parking spots, but this Bosch system directly uses parking space data, helping you save time, money and fuel while looking for a plum parking spot.

The system works through the use of sensors located in each space. These disc-shaped sensors are about 3 cm tall and relay information to a server about the status of the parking spot.

The Bosch sensors ultimately help drivers spend more time in their destination than in their car searching for a parking spot.
