One thought on “Action I7: Smart Parking”

  1. HERE would be happy to include any real time parking data produced as part of this scheme as part of our Dynamic Parking Service, currently in development. We create the maps used in 4 out of 5 sat-nav systems sold worldwide and in addition to in-car, also plan to make this Parking Service available on all mobile OS’s in the near future. If you are interested, feel free to contact me directly. Thanks.
