Smart parking in San Francisco

So the Bay city has been making some of the running in ICT-enabled mobility lately. Here’s another one – a smart parking application, using mapping and M2M.

The sustainability benefit is the reduction in all the wasted energy and carbon emissions caused by people driving around looking for places to park; the project home page estimates 30% of all driving, and I have heard higher estimates. The obvious rebound is the journeys that now get made which might not have, because the journeyer now knows that they can definitely find parking.
