Automatic Enforcement

Parking Enforcement is one field with little —if any- innovation characterized by the lack of automation and the extensive use of manpower. Parkingstream has developed a simple 4 step algorithm that can fully automate this job:

1. Car Enters

The process starts when a vehicle is detected entering a street
car enters street

2. Car Exits

Registering the exit time of the vehicle exiting the street
car exits street

3. Doing The Math

  • Calculating the time a vehicle has spent in a street
  • Taking into account the traffic conditions in order to determine if a car was parked in a street and the actual parking duration
  • Calculation of the total amount of money should have been payed for each car that was parked in the street
calculator

4. Aftermath

  • Compare the amount of money a car should have payed with the amount of money payed through 1) mobile phone applications and 2) electronic parking meter
  • send  a ticket home automatically if parking time was not paid in full
