EasyPark aims to minimise parking hassle

First publishedIntertraffic

Day 3
Motorists drive to a location to do something, not to park. Minimising the effort required to park is the aim of a new system that integrates EasyPark’s new in-car parking payment app with the forthcoming Volvo Sensus Connect in-car information and navigation system.

When a motorist parks up, at a location suggested by Sensus Connect close to the driver’s stated destination, they receive a message on the dashboard display asking if they wish to start a parking transaction.

Having defined the length of time for which parking is required and confirmation given for the time period to start, the information is automatically transferred to the driver’s smartphone as they leave the vehicle.

The EasyPark app warns the driver when their time is about to run out and it can be extended via the smartphone touchscreen if necessary. Alternatively, if the driver returns to the vehicle earlier than anticipated, the amount of parking time paid for can be reduced.

EasyPark is one of several providers to have signed up to work with Volvo on the Sensus Connect and has a range of agreements with municipalities and parking providers in Europe. The parking location automatically determines to which parking provider the payment is made.

Volvo is the first OEM to adopt this type of system, which is due to become operational in May.
