FOSTER CITY, Calif., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streetline, Inc., the leading global provider of smart parking solutions, today released ParkerData Availability API, a real time API that enables application developers, current Streetline customers, and Streetline partners to incorporate real-time parking availability into applications, websites, in-car navigation systems and dynamic electronic signage.
"Opening up our real-time data set is an exciting step forward in accelerating the development ecosystem and the use of parking data as an ingredient in apps, websites, in-car navigation systems," said Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline. "By encouraging the integration of both our static off-street data and now our dynamic, real-time data through the ParkerData Availability API, we can optimize the benefits of parking guidance including reduced congestion, reduced emissions, improved motorist experience, and a thriving downtown community."
Using the ParkerData Availability API, developers can build their own parking visualizations on mobile and web apps, in-car navigation, or drive variable message signs that display an availability count, as well as the total capacity for the facility or collection of spaces. The ParkerData Availability API can display availability for all combined spaces in a facility (lot or garage) or can segment availability by row or by space type. The ability to segment is particularly useful when displaying availability of special use spaces such as EV, accessible, or visitor spaces. Data is currently available for more than 40 locations in the U.S., Canada, Germany, UK, Spain and France.
At the core of the ParkerData Availability API is an inference engine that has analyzed over 225 million sensor-based parking events, and through Streetline's proprietary machine learning algorithms, delivers accurate and timely parking space availability across various space topologies including parallel (on-street), perpendicular (lots and garages), and diagonal spaces. The inference engine also provides an availability index value, such as Low, Medium, and High, which can be used as a space count alternative.
The ParkerData Availability API has already been released to select customers and partners in a private beta and will be available more broadly on a fee basis in the future.
"The ParkerData Availability API is the natural evolution of Parker™, the world's first mobile app that delivers real-time parking availability, and builds on the ParkerData Basic API, which provides programmatic access to over 20,000 off-street parking facilities," said Vito Salvaggio, SVP Product Management of Streetline. "We've captured feedback from our partners and customers and defined a real-time API that we believe will further accelerate the proliferation of real-time parking availability data across a broader variety and apps and devices."
Streetline is the leading source of real-time parking data in the U.S. and Europe – providing real-time data to consumers on open parking spots on the street and in garages through Parker, leading guidance application available on both iPhone and Android. To capture real-time data, 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. Cities, universities, and parking providers glean valuable insight into their parking operation through ParkSight™, a cloud-based application that includes historical and real-time data to aid in policy and workforce management. To date, the Streetline Smart Parking Platform has detected more that 225 million parking events across more than 40 deployments in the U.S. and Europe.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
