Valet Parking, the App

While the live test used ultrasound to find available parking spots, future garage parking spots may be equipped with technology that mechanically prevents access to vehicles without the proper ID. The researchers envision a citywide GPS system that reserves the nearest available parking spot within a specified price range. Managing hundreds of simultaneous requests for vacant parking spots throughout a city, it would direct subscribers from their present location to the parking spot closest (and if desired, cheapest) to their destination.
