Best Smart Parking Innovators

Parking is a $25 billion industry that’s seen little innovation in decades. While there has been a great deal of investment in creating energy-efficient hybrid and electric vehicles, this still doesn’t solve the problem of global gridlock. A car is a car — even if electric — it still causes the same burden on urban gridlock that gas-powered cars do … and the need to park still exists. Thirty percent of all traffic congestion in urban areas is caused by drivers looking for a parking space. This wastes time, is inconvenient, and increases carbon dioxide emissions. Here we honor the people who did significant work on solving these problems. Each day they contribute more and more, and rapidly enable further development of Smart Parking and Smart Cities.
Weekend fun time!
