Diginomic/IoT Parking Meters Ready for Real Time

KERBserviceMeter_Aug2013KERBspace has unveiled a remarkable “smart” parking meter that does everything but serve curbside coffee. It has sensors that detect a vehicle in its parking space, down to the type of vehicle — whether it is a car or a truck. The driver pays with credit card or by phone. Wherever the driver may be in the area, the meter sends alerts to their phone when time is about to expire, and the driver has the option to pay for expanded time remotely by their phone.

Pretty cool. It’s all part of bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) into the urban/suburban experience. – Bozeman Daily Chronicle
