'Park Rangr' is an AR-infused parking aid that takes some of the guesswork out of confusing street signage.

Parking tickets are a common annoyance that can occur despite a driver's best intentions. Not paying close enough attention to confusing signage and unknown by-law limitations can result in a hefty fine or an uncomfortable parking situation. Using AR, Park Rangr helps drivers avoid these issues, processing city-signage in real-time and relaying analyzed information in a more digestible manner. To use the app, users simply hold and point a smart device toward a sign, which prompts the app to gather related information from a large database.

Through Park Rangr, users can gather parking information, time restrictions and even neighborhood ratings, which informs drivers whether or not they've parked in a safe area.
