There is currently a gap between parking operators (cities, universities, airports, private operators, etc) and auto manufacturers, in terms of understanding how current and future connected cars will interact with today’s parking infrastructure. While there are a number of factors that contribute to this chasm, one of the more important factors impacting the parking industry is the deployment timeline for in-vehicle connected services as they relate to parking.
Connected and driverless vehicles are here. It is already possible to pay for fuel, movie tickets and of course, parking, without leaving the vehicle. Fully automated valet parking (where the driver exits the vehicle at the entrance to a parking garage and the car parks itself) may have attracted less hype, but because of the lower cost, fewer safety concerns and high demand, is anticipated to be the first fully driverless feature available for mass deployment.
