Accelerating SmartPark Deployment


To independently assess the status of the deployment of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) for truck parking, evaluate market opportunities and barriers to their deployment, and develop strategies for overcoming any identified barriers.


There is great demand for real-time information on truck parking availability; however, current deployment of ITS for truck parking is sporadic with no organized or standardized effort to deploy the available technology.


In this project, researchers performed an assessment of ITS technology for truck parking; conducted a market analysis, executing research on barriers and opportunities; and drafted a strategic plan for accelerated deployment of the technology. A stakeholder workshop to discuss and collect feedback on the strategic plan was also conducted.
