Streetline’s mission is to make smart cities a reality through the use of sensor-enabled mobile and web applications. Streetline believes in the power of innovation and information to transform cities into communicative, efficient systems.
Streetline is initially focusing on smart parking to address two major global challenges – traffic congestion and budget deficits. Streetline has become the recognized industry leader in real-time vehicle parking detection and has set the standard of best practice for sensor-based parking management applications. The company’s innovative applications have provided dramatic return on investment through improved enforcement productivity and meter management.
With the introduction of Parker™, a real-time parking guidance smartphone app, Streetline is launching a demand-side parking management program. By enabling drivers to find parking quickly and easily, Streetline is significantly reducing traffic and vehicle emissions, as experts estimate that 30% of urban traffic is caused by motorists looking for parking.
By connecting the real world with critical information, Streetline is revolutionizing the way we live and work, while making cities more efficient and lessening their environmental impact.
