ParkSmart is an innovative parking solution for cities and urban spheres that continue to run out of space.

The goal of this smart parking service is to maximize financial value, increase public parking space, raise profits and minimize operating fees. It does so by using the implementation of technologically advanced hardware and software products.

Systems like ParkSmart are indicative of a greater trend. Municipalities across the globe are searching for ways to become more efficient and connected in all of their systems, from waste management to traffic control. The Internet of Things allows cities to become smarter and more eco-conscious, ensuring that each system consumes only as much as it needs during any given time, and allowing people to interact with the systems in a meaningful way.
