On-street parking service offered in BMW 5 Series
INRIX announced the availability of its On-Street Parking service in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. The INRIX system is designed to use historical and up-to-the-minute parking data to predict the availability of parking spaces. Drivers of connected cars can then use the information to find on-street parking in real time.
With the BMW 5 Series now including this service in North America, drivers can get real-time traffic service for up-to-the-minute and predictive traffic flow information for routes, travel times, and alerts to accidents and incidents. INRIX Traffic incorporates information from its network of more than 300 million connected vehicles and devices in more than 40 countries.
“Real-time parking is the most sought-after navigation feature because it addresses a pain point that affects everyone,” said Joe Berry, Vice President and General Manager of Automotive at INRIX. “The first automotive deployment of INRIX On-Street Parking solidifies BMW’s position at the forefront of connected car technology with a focus on delivering the services drivers want the most.”
The INRIX On-Street Parking service is live with BMW Group in 16 cities in Germany and the U.S., with more cities set to launch in 2017.
