Audi A6 to Predict When Parking Spaces Are Available

At Jack Ingram Audi in Montgomery, Alabama, we are well aware of the technology standards Audi sets. Audi continues to raise the bar on the best-of vehicle technology on the market today. It appears that Audi has done it again, releasing the Audi Urban Intelligent Assist that connects with the on-board navigation system to, among other things, tell you which street spaces are open and, even better, when a space will be available. It’s like Google Now for parking.

The new Audi-developed app combines a calendar and navigation into basically a GPS planner for day-to-day travels. You set the destination and the app determines how long it will take based on traffic data and when you should leave if you have an appointment set in the planner. It will alert you when to leave and head to the destination with current traffic conditions.  

Once the navigation programs the destination, it displays a map and dozens of pins appear on streets indicating parking in surrounding areas. Numbers appear on each pin letting the driver know the number of spaces available on that block.

How does it know? Sensors in metered parking spaces that mark the spot open or occupied. The system basically personalizes your driver profile and compiles your driving habits.

Do you think this type of system will work for our commuters and business people in downtown Montgomery? Wouldn’t if be nice to know if the meter still has time on it and the spot is available. It appears that Audi is constantly evolving to stay ahead of the curb so who knows what we will see next.
