Your Smart City Is Stupid - Cities have been called a repository of possibilities. What they haven’t been called, at least until recently, is smart.

Smart Cities: Early Signs of Progress, but Still a Long Way to Go - CES takes place in Las Vegas, which is itself hoping to become a smart city. Here's how things are going so far.

At CES, Cisco sponsored an event to show off  ...

Walkable Parking: How to Create Park-Once-and-Walk Districts By Paul Barter - Planning for Walkable Parking basically means working to create more park-once-and-walk districts where much of the parking is open to the public, even if it is privately owned.

To accommodate, the annual Las Vegas trade ... 

What I Learned About Self-Driving Cars At CES - It’s tough to pull meaning from the crush and cacophony of CES, the sprawling tech extravaganza that’s curiously well-suited to the sensory overload experience that is Las Vegas. But here’s a big takeaway from the 2018 edition: the future of mobility has left the “gee, wouldn’t it be cool if…” phase. It’s now firmly in the “here’s how it starts” mode ... 

Will Self-Driving Cars Usher in a Transportation Utopia or Dystopia? - The need for parking places and parking garages would plummet, as driverless cars go somewhere else instead of parking. Because roughly 80 percent of toxic air pollutants are released in the first five minutes⁠ of driving, the resulting reduction in cold starts would cause a huge drop in air pollution. In a place like Los Angeles, now home to 18.6 million parking places⁠ — three per car ... 

San Francisco Rolls Out Dynamic Parking Rate Model - Ultimately the idea behind demand-based rates is rooted in the goal of getting drivers off the streets and into a space as quickly as possible. “You certainly hear stories in San Francisco of people saying, ‘I circled around for an hour and couldn’t find parking, so I just left,’” Wilson offered. “And of course, less driving means fewer greenhouse gas emissions ... 

Setting Sail: ‘The Future Is Today’ - Lessons from the Parking Australia Outlook Conference 2017 - Last fall, I was fortunate to attend one of the best conferences I have ever had the privilege to experience: the Parking Australia Outlook Conference 2017.

Albert Einstein said, “He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” And wonder ... 

Don’t Fear the Self-Driving Car - Someday — not necessarily soon, but someday — agents of the state will seek to ban driving outright, warns National Review Online editor Charles C. W. Cooke. Be it in the name of safety or in the name of efficiency, the government stands ready, Cooke asserts, to strike at one of the core principles that empower us as a free people: self-reliant freedom of movement. Faced with that threat, Cooke sees no choice for liberty lovers but to commit to a constitutional  ... 

People Aren't Ready for Self-Driving Cars - Another survey found that only 15 percent of people would prefer autonomous vehicles to traditional human-driven cars. It’s true that some groups are less worried than others, but these differences of opinion are less significant than the overall public view. Aside from simply the fear of being in these vehicles without the option of control, much of the American public still relishes the joy of the driving experience ... 

The new cloud over smart cities - But what makes a smart city? Or what is meant by an investment in smart city technologies? There is a tremendous diversity of answers to these questions, as there are approaches to building smart cities. The one underlying theme to every answer is that smart cities are connected cities. The new “urban cloud” might be connecting  ... 

What will autonomous cars mean for all those downtown parking garages? - For decades, providing downtown parking was a top priority for urban planners. Huge parking garages for commuters’ cars occupied prime real estate that otherwise might have been used for housing, stores or offices.But ride-hailing services and autonomous cars may revolutionize parking in cities across the country — in garages ... 

The Technological Race to Find You a Place to Park - One of the few things more frustrating than driving in a big congested city is searching for a parking spot so that you can stop driving. On-street spaces are reoccupied just moments after the last motorist pulled out, and garages charge more than many people earn in an hour. Technology has already started to solve the problem of squeezing into a space ...

How not to create traffic jams, pollution and urban sprawl - Apple is building 11,000 parking spaces not because it wants to but because Cupertino, the suburban city where the new headquarters is located, demands it. Cupertino has a requirement for every building. A developer who wants to put up a block of flats, for example, must provide two parking spaces per apartment, one of which must be covered. For a fast-food restaurant, the city demands ... 

Why the future of Minneapolis parking garages may not include parking - Casey Wagner, the chief operating officer for Walker Consultants, a consulting firm based in Houston that specializes in parking, said that while there are significant differences between parking uses and commercial and residential uses, there is no doubt that in many large cities, parking demand is declining. And while surface parking  ... 

You think parking in Miami is bad? It’s actually a bargain - Technology has transformed parking, replacing traditional staples such as coin-fed curbside meters and booth attendants with an ecosystem of more than 200 competing apps, according to Parking Today magazine. Despite the industry’s big profits, though, parking is not the revenue generator for city and county governments or real estate developers ... 

Malcolm Gladwell looks at the future of self-driving cars - One key factor affecting how quickly the tech goes mainstream is, not surprisingly, people's emotions about entrusting their fate to a potentially lethal machine. "You may be far more risk-averse or far more upset by something going wrong if you've surrendered control to a machine than if you were in charge yourself," Gladwell said. "It's not enough to say there may be fewer accidents if we go to  ... 

Parking Spaces That Could Make You Rich - Parking investors do face an uncertain future, though. If more people start driving electric cars, spaces without charging stations will be less desirable. Ride hailing apps and self-driving car services could also dampen demand. But Mr. Wisotky in Brooklyn, for one, isn’t worried about a downturn in the market, nor is he giving up his remaining parking space anytime soon ... 

Americans Agree on Self-Driving Cars With One Big Exception. There's one big exception - It’s likely a matter of time before self-driving cars rule the road, with the first fully autonomous vehicles potentially hitting the market before 2020. The advent of cars that drive themselves will mean a major rethink of everything we think we know about driving, from our laws to our cultural expectations of what it even means to be inside a car. It won’t be an easy ... 

George Will: Auto industry has opaque future - Bending metal, slapping on chrome and marketing an empowering product and status marker that mesmerized 20th-century America, the automobile industry typified the Old Economy, of which General Motors was emblematic. As was its bankruptcy. Today, GM's CEO Mary Barra is wagering that the industry soon will be manufacturing New ... 

"Death by Parking" by JVH, is available now for purchase on Amazon.com -  From the Isle of Islay to the Isle of LA! - BOOK REVIEW: ‘Death by Parking: Book One’ by Astrid Ambroziak - If you want to have some fun with parking and learn about LA, its history and its top PI team, pour yourself a double Laphroaig, settle in, and read JVH’s “Death by Parking: Book One.” You will forget your problems of the day past, and relax while going on an outback journey with the Mannings, Private Investigators ...
