angry tapir writes "IBM has launched a system designed to help cities ease parking congestion and collect more parking fees. The service could also help motorists find parking spaces more easily in crowded urban areas. IBM is offering this system in conjunction with San Francisco-based startup Streetline, which offers remote sensors that can determine if a parking space is taken by a car. IBM provides the analytical software, by way of a cloud service, that aggregates data from these sensors so it can be used to better understand how a city's parking spaces are used over time."
