San Mateo, CA, 26-Oct-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Streetline, which creates smart parking data and mobile apps to guide motorists to open parking spaces and empower cities to optimize parking utilization, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with its Global Product Line Strategy Leadership Award for Smart Parking Technology.
“When it comes to applications empowered by accurate parking occupancy data, Streetline continues to stay well ahead of the rest of the smart parking industry,” stated Yiru Zhong, Senior Industry Analyst from Frost & Sullivan, “Streetline is the clear choice to receive this award due to its accelerated ability to drive wide adoption of their platform at a global level.”
According to Manny Krakaris, CEO of Streetline, “This prestigious award recognizes the ability of our new hybrid data collection platform to deliver accurate, real-time parking availability information at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems. In doing so, not only can our platform improve parking services, it can have a meaningful impact on quality of life, air quality and economic vitality.”
Streetline’s hybrid smart parking platform enables any city to optimize parking resources based on a continuous stream of data from their streets without straining local government budgets. Streetline accurately predicts real-time,on-street parking occupancy based on multiple data sources at a small incremental cost to the city, includingin-pavement sensors, cameras and a mobile SDK for third party mobile information platforms. This can reduce the traffic strains and related air quality issues caused by cars looking for parking, which can account for up to 30 percent of urban congestion.
“We’ve long recognized Streetline as a technology leader that has simplified big data consumption and developed insightful analytics critical to realizing the promise of Smart Cities,” Zhong stated. “And, the company’s ability to reduce the cost of its system so significantly may be the biggest leap forward to date in the Smart Parking industry.”
Krakaris added, “Smart parking is at the core of tomorrow’s Smart Cities. We’re grateful to Frost & Sullivan for this important recognition.”
