Parking Facilities Cater to Autonomous Vehicles
USA – A Chicago-based technology company has upgraded 500 of its parking spaces with technology to meet the needs of driverless cars. SpotHero, which helps drivers find parking in cities, has upgraded its facilities using its HeroConnect platform. This allows drivers, the vehicles themselves, garages, car manufacturers and cities to communicate, exchanging data and payments.
The new parking features for driverless cars include license plate recognition, IoT sensors and other capabilities. These allow the unmanned vehicles to book, pay, enter and exit a parking facility without the need for human interaction. In an era where the digitization of almost every aspect of life has never been more popular, this is likely to appeal to those who have invested in an autonomous vehicle.
