Smart Parking

Smart Parking is a convenient and, user-friendly parking solution for parking slot reservation, navigation and monitoring parking lot utilization. Users can navigate their complete journey from their outdoor location to their parking space (both indoor and outdoor) using one application.


The smart parking system helps users find the optimal parking slot, ensuring the least amount of time spent driving around parking lots. It can monitor real-time parking lot utilization, and clients can optimize their parking areas based on actual usage data. The system can also be integrated with a mobile payment service to also pay for the parking.
With this solution, inhabitants, employees, and visitors can greatly reduce their time finding parking spots in parking lots or public spaces, while building and parking lot operators can decrease costs by optimizing the design of parking areas.
