The appearance of the automobile in the 20th century was a significant technological advancement. The ability to travel long distances on land quickly by driving your own vehicle was an astonishing development. 

But now there’s a problem. Parking infrastructure has not caught up with the demand created by an increase in automobile usage. Everywhere you see people circle their cars around parking lots for hours on end, wasting time and fuel to find a parking space. That is where smart parking solutions come in with several benefits.

Increased Safety

Parking lots are incredibly boring and often lack aesthetics or amenities to make an individual feel safe if they must wait for someone longer than expected. Smart parking solutions, on the other hand, will provide improved safety for individuals waiting in their cars and more aesthetically pleasing environments.

Integrated Payment Systems

The ability to integrate payments into smart parking systems can create a more efficient transaction process for individuals. It is frustrating to go through the motions of paying for something when you are not sure if you have done it correctly or not. A simple payment system that is solely dedicated to paying for parking would make transactions easier and faster.

Less Pollution

Cars are one of the biggest contributors to pollution. Having fewer cars on the road will decrease air pollution. This is a big plus.

Increased Brand Imagery

Businesses are always trying to come up with new ways to make their company stand out from competitors. Offering something new or different can be a great way to get the attention of the public. Business owners would have an opportunity to show off their parking lots and integrate them into their brand image. 

With a car parking system, drivers would be able to use an app on their smartphone to request the nearest available parking space. When they arrive at the location, there will be an access code for them to type into one of the poles located around the perimeter of the lot. This will eliminate the problem of finding parking spaces.
