The proposed new meters represent an upgrade to the latest technology in both parking meters and in Smart City parking management technology. They have many consumer-friendly features, such as multiple ways to pay for parking, a bright, multilingual display with full audio-visual capabilities, unparalleled integration with a parking mobile app and even the ability to automatically recognize a license plate and pay for parking so the driver is never in danger of receiving a ticket. The meters also incorporate the latest in vehicle detection technology that allows for the complete capture of parking data behavior, and the ability to combine meter operations and enforcement by instantaneously detecting and documenting parking violations. This ensures uniform, 24/7 enforcement capabilities throughout the city, and allows officers to remotely enforce parking violations without the need to travel directly to a vehicle. Finally, the meters feature many other non-parking related features commonly found in SmartCity kiosk devices, such as the ability to broadcast audio-visual weather alerts and amber alerts, provide community service notices, display advertising, etc.
