The Smarts for Parking
Peggy is joined by Dan Mathers, president and CEO, eleven-x, to talk about autonomous driving and smart parking, as he explains there are a lot of different ways to do smart parking. He says with the advent of autonomous driving, it is going to be a while before things are converted over, and in a mixed mode environment, not all cars are going to have the sensors to figure out where the parking is. He says smart parking is only one of the smart city applications, but the reason why it captures everyone’s imagination is because we have all been there. He points to a pilot at the University of British Columbia that is monitoring handicapped spots, and other cities are looking to that example to help solve parking issues. He talks about the LoRaWAN network and how eleven-x built a coast-to-coast network to do smart city water monitoring implementation.
