Using the company’s sensor-enabled smart-parking system — Parker, a free smartphone app — motorists can see open parking spaces in real-time, reducing the time and energy spent searching for parking. Sensors embedded in the pavement detect available spaces. The app provides location and general availability of spaces through the use of web-enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet. Once parked, motorists can use its built-in timer or access directions to help find the space when they need to return to their vehicle. Central Parking System has completed the sale of 14
