How it works
Cox Smart Communities enables and offers a speed-to-market advantage for curbside management because we handle the entire process from permitting and construction to installation and connectivity.
Cameras/Sensors captures ALPR data and associates that vehicle with a specific curbside stall and alerts drivers of time remaining on their occupied space.
Visual cues share vehicle information and a count-down clock to inform the driver and encourage them to move from their occupied space when their time has expired.
Digital visual cues, in combination with the data insights captures, empower customer to dynamically manage the usage of the curb and monetize accordingly (timed parking, commercial permits, no parking, and more).
Manage, monitor, and monetize the curbs in your community. What was once a humble curb space occupied mostly by taxis, buses, and the occasional delivery truck has now become a gathering spot where part-time rideshare drivers, food delivery drivers, and countless other mobile services are all trying to share the same space.
