FOSTER CITY, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Streetline, Inc., the leading provider of smart parking solutions and real time parking data, announced today the introduction of ParkerMap™, an embeddable widget that allows merchants, universities, cities, and parking providers to easily showcase nearby parking options via any website.
ParkerMap is available for free at www.theparkerapp.com/parkermap. To generate a custom ParkerMap, users simply enter an address and the ParkerMap wizard generates unique HTML code that can easily be dropped into any website. Among those already using ParkerMap are City of Fort Lauderdale, Oregon State University, San Mateo Downtown Association and Mandaloun Restaurant in Redwood City, Calif.
"Our goal is to provide parking data via as many channels as possible and the ParkerMap is yet another tool to make parking data broadly available to motorists," said Zia Yusuf, president and CEO of Streetline. "Whether you're a merchant trying to bring customers to your establishment, a university managing an influx of visitors for the big game, or a city looking to reduce congestion downtown, letting motorists know where they can park is key."
ParkerMap: What Customers Are Saying:
- "The City of Fort Lauderdale is constantly striving to improve the services we provide to our residents, guests and businesses. The ParkerMap helps us leverage even more value from our smart parking deployment by allowing our merchants and restaurants to take advantage of this new source of information. The more ways we can convey parking information to consumers, the better! And, the ParkerMap is a means to do this that is simple to use and effective."
- Brian McKelligett, Parking Services Manager, Department of Transportation and Mobility, City of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
- "By introducing the ParkerMap to Oregon State University our students, faculty, staff, and visitors without smartphones can now access parking locations, policies, and check the real-time availability of disability parking in the core of campus. I was able to add ParkerMap to our website in less than two minutes. Streetline has created a very user-friendly interface to create and add a parking map any website. Streetline has welcomed us into the world of parking 2.0!"
- Jennifer E. Gossett, Disability Access Services, Oregon State University
- "As a restaurant owner, providing the highest quality service is always a top concern. Since finding parking can be a challenge in downtown Redwood City, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the area, any tips we can provide to customers is the type top-notch service we pride ourselves on. Adding the ParkerMap to our website allows us to inform guests of the parking options near our building and how much they cost. It is a clear way to show where parking is available in relation to our location and it was simple to add to our website."
- Basim Nimri, owner, Mandaloun Restaurant (Redwood City, Calif.)
- "Parking is the first thing and the last thing a consumer experiences when visiting our downtown. Showing them where to find adequate parking is essential to a thriving downtown. The ParkerMap helps our businesses inform visitors where they can park, how much it costs, and the availability of on street parking in real time for key blocks in the heart of downtown."
- Jessica Evans, Executive Director, Downtown San Mateo Association
Streetline's patented smart parking platform detects the presence of a car through a network of ultra-low power wireless sensors located in individual parking spaces. Data from these sensors, or from counting equipment installed in parking garages and lots, is then made available in real time via ParkerMap, various cloud-based applications, such as Parker™, the leading consumer guidance app for smartphones, tablets, personal computers and – soon – in-car navigation systems, as well as other applications geared toward city planners and parking facility operators. In addition to real-time data, Streetline also integrates garage data for over 23,000 locations.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff hap...
