VoicePark®, Inc. was founded in 2012 with the mission of delivering both parking management tools and auto driver tools to solve parking challenges and problems. VoicePark began by developing the world's first mobile app that guides drivers by voice to the closest available parking spot on-street or of-street in real-time (<1 second latency). We use a combination of sensor data and a database of 3 million parking spots in garages / lots in over 40 major US cites. VoicePark is a safe, hands-free, turn-by-turn, real-time, voice-guided system that complies with recent US and European legislation regarding the use of mobile devices in moving vehicles.In the San Francisco pilot project, the first large scale project of its type, VoicePark partnered with SFMTA and our technology reduced the average time it took drivers to find an available parking space from 12.5 minutes to 45 seconds.
VoicePark's integrated parking solution provides municipalities with real-time parking occupancy and enforcement data, as well as historical data analysis capabilities, through a customized back-end database and reporting system. Municipality revenues have increased by up to 400% by improving enforcement efficiencies. The SF pilot project increased business tax revenue by 20% in areas with a smart parking system. VoicePark can also be implemented and increase efficiency in hourly, non-metered parking zones.
The VoicePark backend and mobile app will soon be integrated with our own proprietary BLE equipped sensor systems or any existing connected meter / sensor system, existing sensor arrays, predictive analytics, providing both a physical and a cloud-based information platform.
We are well-positioned and have participated in multiple smart city IoT Initiatives including: San Francisco, Washington DC, San Diego, the EU, and soon several new cities in partnership with Conduent and the Xerox Corporation.
