With the end of the year in sight, it’s time to take a look back at what 2016 had to offer. What’s clear is that the startup industry is still flourishing, with many young entrepreneurs that have plenty of innovative, disruptive ideas for the future. The following days we will be looking back at the startups that stood out to us particularly, and ask them about 2016 and their plans for the future. Today: Parking solutions startup ParkEagle.
Save time, reduce exhaust and unclog traffic
Few activities can be such a pain in the *ss as trying to find a parking space in a big city. So when a startup comes along that claims to make parking “fast fun and easy”, your initial reaction may be: “Really? Never been to Amsterdam I guess?” But these guys may have a solution that will actually save car drivers valuable time finding a spot, thus reducing exhaust and also unclogging urban traffic at the same time. Their discs with wireless sensors network keep track of which parking spots are free. Drivers can then see live availability on the app. So no more searching around for a spot for half an hour before going into the city.
