Our plan is to use sensing technology allowing occupancy of parking spaces to be monitored. Current systems do not track occupancy and they primarily work in parking structures. Other systems do not address the greater issue of parking lots and on-street parking. Additionally, drivers can use this technology to find available parking spaces in real-time.


Real-time monitoring lets drivers know which individual spaces are available, allowing them to spend less time in traffic. With our product, we are able to affordably, accurately and easily track parking space occupancy as well as provide real-time data and analytics about space availability. This will allow drivers to find available spaces via our app and will give cities access to data they have never been able to have before.

What I Will Do With $5,000

We plan to use the $5,000 to purchase hardware for our pilot with the City of Holland during Tulip Time 2019.
