MeterFeeder announces Pay By Vehicle system for drivers and autonomous vehicles.
Pittsburgh (PA) – MeterFeeder announced at the recent Innovation Works’ AlphaLab Demo Day & New Product Introduction presentation the completion of development of their “Pay By Vehicle” system for drivers and autonomous vehicles. The revolutionary new software will allow vehicles both new and old to pay for parking in select areas simply by being in defined parking spaces, with no human interaction.
The cloud based software can be implemented into any vehicle via inexpensive on-board diagnostic devices with GPS and internet connectivity. These devices are already readily available to the public to add features such as WiFi and mobile error code alerts to their vehicles. MeterFeeder also provides a platform for smart vehicle manufacturers to send commands directly to the system.
When the vehicle is shut off and the owner has registered through the MeterFeeder app, the vehicle will pay for parking on its own. MeterFeeder says they hope to see this technology not only in traditional vehicles, but also in autonomous ones as well. “This technology is the next step in MeterFeeder’s mission to meet the upcoming need of autonomous vehicles to find and pay for parking,” said Jim Gibbs, CEO of Meter Feeder, Inc, “making this technology available to smart vehicles, especially fleets, will let us get ahead of autonomous vehicle implementations so the product is in place and ready for their arrival in municipalities and parking venues of any size.”
The new system is all set to go, with integration with the MeterFeeder app complete. Citizens can begin using the new system as soon as it is greenlit by their municipality.
