New York testing parking spaces that find you

A company called Streetline, Inc. is working with the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) to deploy a sensor based Smart Parking system as part of a pilot project. The sensors are being installed along Arthur Ave. in the Bronx in cooperation with two other vendors. NYCDOT is running the installation as a feasibility test of the sensor technology to ease parking availability, cutting emissions by the amount of time normally spent finding a space.
