Xerox PARC: Still Inventing Cool New Stuff After All These Years

Refocusing on transportation, Burns notes that most road sensing systems to date have involved punitive measures to make drivers behave better: don’t drive too fast, or park in the wrong place. But she says PARC is working on ways to help cities deliver services in more helpful ways. One example she offers: imagine cities could provide a way to make it easier for drivers to find empty parking places in urban areas via the use of “intelligent sensing.” She notes that ACS already has relationships with just about every state in the country for the delivery of some services around transportation.
