Wind River and Parkeon Partner to Make the “Smart City” a Reality

Global Leader in On-Street Parking Payment Solutions Selects Wind River Professional Services to Integrate Intelligent Street Kiosks

Full Case Study

“When we started to think about the architecture we need to create the open platform we envision, we knew we needed a much more robust connectivity solution than we could build ourselves.”

—Marc Boulanger, Parkeon’s StreetSmart Program Director

THE OBJECTIVE

Parkeon is a global leader in urban mobility technology developing a next-generation parking terminal. The company wanted to move the main intelligence out of the pay station and into the cloud, then turn a simple parking meter into a useful, on-street, IoT-networked kiosk. It wanted to connect and integrate the new terminals with the company’s back-office business systems.

HOW WIND RIVER HELPED

In order to create the open platform they envisioned, Parkeon knew it needed a much stronger and more robust connectivity solution than its engineers could build themselves. Parkeon turned to Wind River® Professional Services to help it deliver an end-to-end solution to accelerate its time-to-market and reduce risk.

THE RESULTS

By partnering with Wind River, Parkeon was able to deliver a solution in less time, at a lower cost and with less project risk than developing in-house. Along with spending less money, Parkeon was also able to save six months to a year in time-to-market.
