About Spot Parking

Spot is a Sydney Angel funded urban tech startup that started back in 2015. We collect kerb side parking restriction data via globally scalable processes. So far, we have collected over 200,000 parking signs across Australia and the United States.

Our data serves as a foundation layer in mobility innovation for smart cities. Spot has developed patent pending technology and is in the process of trialling the technology with cities and private parking owners in Australia and the United States.

We provide a real time digital inventory of on-street parking rules and powerful information that can better inform drivers. Mobility as a Service (Maas) services, logistics, courier, ride hail and navigation systems, as well as universities and councils can use our data to improve their parking strategies and optimise their services.

 
 

Digital Parking Asset Mapping

Digital City Mapping
Autonomous Vehicle

Spot has developed a fast, accurate, scalable and cost-efficient process to map parking assets.

This has proven to be a key foundational layer for smart cities and private parking owners. 

Interpreting geo-located parking signs and meters into a powerful time-dynamic database is the first step towards smarter parking strategy, regulation and public communication.

With the growing need to prepare for a more connected future and the rise of autonomous vehicles, it is easy to see why accurate parking restrictions data will only become more useful in the future.

Parking Asset Management Platform (PAM)

Spot collects data that fully encapsulates the restrictions along the entire side of each street, not just the parking areas. In this way, a holistic overview of parking restrictions can be created for asset owners to interrogate, report on and strategise from.

Each asset is treated as a data point in PAM, with a category assigned, a geo-location and a raw image showing the asset condition.


Parking Finder

Spot works with cities to create powerful databases and key navigation for customers. We have found that while the core use cases are the same - 'Where can I park?' 'How long can I stay?' 'How much will it cost?' - different clients look for a focus on different features.  Some clients have wanted to focus on School Safety, some on Disabled Spaces.

The parking finder is a versatile tool to visualise parking restrictions that can help people discover and plan their parking options. With the option to add sensors for real time availability and usage analytics, it becomes a powerful tool for the public and for asset owners alike.

Whatever the focus, data collection and visualisation can be customised to suit.  Take a look at some of our products in action:  Bendigo CBD, Parramatta SchoolsSydney, & Hollywood, LA.

Case Study - Parramatta Schools Parking Finder

Spot worked with the City of Parramatta to create an online, interactive resource to help improve pedestrian safety, ease congestion, and increase compliance to parking restrictions around school zones.

Case Study - Bendigo CBD Parking Finder

Spot worked with the City of Greater Bendigo to create an online, interactive resource to help people understand restrictions and find parking.  The city wanted a particular focus on accessibility, so the Disability Inclusion Reference Committee of the city was consulted throughout the project.  The tool was designed to give more information for disabled visitors to the city to find parking spots which suited their specific needs.  In doing so, it is hoped that we can remove just one of the many difficulties faced by disabled people visiting new places.
