Urban Innovations: Connected Parking and Future Mobility

August 30, 2019

By 2050, the UN predicts the world will have 10 billion citizens and three billion additional cars. With a strain already visible on UK cities trying to manage significant automobile numbers, city parking planning and infrastructure need to be reimagined to cope with the expected growth. The alternative will mean three billion people cannot each have a vehicle, and social mobility will suffer. How can advancements in smart parking technology better manage vehicle growth and reduce it without unjustly limiting public mobility? While increased traffic flow can be beneficial for areas looking to boost visitors and tourism revenues, busier roadways pose significant challenges for local councils trying to manage driver behavior and satisfy public opinion.
