The smart parking start-up collaborated with Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India (MBRDI) to assist end-users in searching and navigating to an available parking lot.
Get My Parking’s platform helps Automobile OEMs like Mercedes-Benz enable in-car touchscreen or voice commands to search for parking so that they do not have to use a phone while driving. To avoid confusion due to a large number of digital parking service providers across regions, GMP’s platform integrations provide aggregated data and facilitate transactions across any 3rd party service. Users can link their digital payment method of choice with the car to enable automatic payment using GMP’s Enable module.
Under their flagship Startup Autobahn India program, MBRDI has been working closely with the IoT-driven digital parking platform, to embed this feature into all Mercedes-Benz cars equipped with Mercedes Me Connect, a digital link between the car and the end-user introduced in October 2019. This collaboration seeks to address the challenge posed by the lack of accurate information and limited parking space.
Mr. Rasik Pansare, Co-Founder, Get My Parking, explained, “As pioneers of smart parking in India, we have always wanted to help urban citizens to have a hassle-free parking experience. That mission is accelerated by this collaboration with Mercedes-Benz India wherein their car users can access detailed data on relevant parking lots across multiple interfaces. This partnership highlights our role as the bridge between parking and mobility industry.”
Get My Parking has been closely working with the Mercedes Benz (India) R&D team to display our parking data directly inside the Mercedes cars on the touchscreen dashboard as well as on their mobile apps. With the comprehensive digital data of 9000 parking lots in over 50 cities of India in store, GMP can enable Mercedes Benz to help motorists discover relevant parking as per their criteria.
