FOSTER CITY, Calif. and INDIANAPOLIS, March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Streetline, Inc. (www.streetline.com) and ParkIndy, a public-private partnership between the city and Xerox, are now making it easier to find parking in Indianapolis. Using Streetline’s sensor-enabled Smart Parking system, Parker™, a free smartphone app, motorists can see open parking spaces in real-time, reducing the time and energy spent searching for elusive parking.
Sensors embedded in the pavement detect when spaces are available. Parker provides the location and general availability of spaces through the use of web-enabled devices, such as a smartphone, PC, or tablet. Once parked, motorists can use the app’s built-in timer to track of how much time is left on the meter, or access walking directions to help find their parking space when they need to return to their vehicle.
