Although cities only occupy two percent of the world’s land mass, they consume more than two-thirds of the world’s energy and account for more than 70 percent of global CO2 emissions. In many cities, automobiles are one of the main contributing factors to rising emissions.
The OST Internet of Things (IoT) Smart Parking solution provides a simple and effective solution that is integrated with existing parking space sensors (and/or video cameras). Drivers are directed to the closest available parking space (or to one that was pre-booked), then are provided with a cashless payment system. Additional value added services can also be offered, such as car wash and repair services.
When integrated with the IoT Video Analytics solution, information from video feeds can be combined with data from parking space sensors. The IoT Smart Parking solution can then predict parking utilization rates and report on anomalies or other issues, in real time.
