Empowering cities for smart parking using IoT.

Empowering cities for smart parking using IoT.

The brief.

At any point in time, one-third of the traffic in a crowded downtown area is searching for parking. When city planners need to plan for parking revenue, utilization of existing assets and creating new revenue models are crucial. For consumers, the inability to find parking spaces leads to frustration. Lack of nearby parking also affects local business adversely. Ascendum worked with our client to build a dynamic solution that helped city planners, customers and local businesses alike.

Our approach.

We built a Hybrid Smart Parking Platform that combined existing city parking data with a IoT solution that provided a unified, interactive view of real-time parking demand and city-wide parking guidance. By deploying the IoT solution, any modern city can now effectively facilitate sophisticated analysis, planning and implementation of custom smart-parking programs to achieve ambitious transportation and mobility goals. Ascendum developed and supported the platform until it was successfully launched and piloted in the Greater Los Angeles city metro area.

Working with the teams at Ascendum, we have built a world-class hybrid cloud, excellent mobile app and a real-time analytics dashboard. The Ascendum team is our partner in product excellence.
