The trend for wearable technology has reached the world of parking with the latest device being shown by Dutch company Parkmobile.

It is using Intertraffic as the debut for its new system, which it hopes will bring a new level of convenience to motorists.

Drivers signing up to its new parking app – all that is required to register is an e-mail address and a suitable payment method – receive a digital wristwatch. When the motorist arrives at his parking spot, he can use the vehicle’s dashboard display, a portable device such as an iPad or the watch to tap in the location’s details and start a parking session.

The watch can also be used to terminate the session when the driver returns to the vehicle.

The system is initially being operated through Volvo’s Sensus Connect system, which goes live in May, but other car manufacturers are expected to install similar systems shortly.

Similarly, while Parkmobile is currently offering its own wristwatch, it is in discussions with several digital watch manufacturers to have its app integrated into their products.
