TITLE CARD: TRUE STORIES OF THE CONNECTED

LISA COSTA SANDERS

I'm Lisa Costa Sanders.  I'm the principle planner for the city of San Carlos.  We do have a bit of a parking problem, and that's a good thing, because it says you're busy, but it can be very frustrating.  Business may not thrive if there's not a lot of available parking nearby.

It's not a really big town.  But it's still tough to find a parking space.  If people can't find parking they're just going to move on and find the next coffee shop.

Parking is very important for our business.  If people cannot find parking, they don't like to come to your place. 

TITLE CARD: By 2020, the Internet of Everything has the potential to connect 50 BILLION people, processes, data and things

LISA COSTA SANDERS

The city of San Carlos was very excited when we saw a demonstration about smart parking.

How the system works is pretty straightforward.  There's a sensor that's located in the ground under the parking space.  Once the vehicle arrives, it senses that vehicle's presence, sending a signal to the system that the motorist can view remotely in their car on the Parker app.And here we are, we have a spot available and right in front of our destination.

ENZO ROSANO

An app like Parker can be very useful. It can be a win win situation.

LISA COSTA SANDERS

We really see connective technology having a lot of great applications in the near future. 

The sewer line where technology could sense a situation before it becomes a problem, dispatch repair crews out more quickly.  Could also let us know when there's a traffic or a street light outage. We can really see how to manage the city much better.
