United States: Streetline has 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.
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 Parker Data API is comprised of two complementary API’s: ParkerData Basic and ParkerData Availability. The ParkerData Basic API provides free access to Streetline’s entire inventory of off-street garage and parking lot data. ParkerData Basic allows developers the ability to integrate important garage data like location, hours of operation, payment types, and number of parking spots into their own app environment. The ParkerData Availability API harnesses the power of Streetline’s unique on-street sensor-enabled real-time data on the availability of open parking spots. Developers will be able to integrate the ParkerData Availability API into mobile, web and in-car navigation apps.
Streetline is a 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.
