Valeo and Cisco innovate for Smart Parking Service
Valeo and Cisco signed a cooperation agreement to develop strategic innovations in smart mobility services.
The Cyber Valet Services is a project resulting from their collaboration. How it works: the driver simply gets out of his/her vehicle at the car park entrance and activates the automatic parking system using a smartphone. The vehicle then continues its journey in automatic mode until it has finished parking. In just a few clicks, it can be set in motion again to meet the driver at the designated pick-up point in the car park.
The vehicle drives itself inside the car park by combining the power of automatic parking technologies (Valeo Park4U® Auto), Valeo on-board telematics and secure key systems (Valeo InBlue®) with Cisco Parking Controller technologies, which equip car parks with Wi-Fi, video sensors and artificial intelligence-based solutions.
This unique solution, developed by two major strategically aligned tech players, now enables vehicles equipped with Valeo Park4U® Auto technology to park safely and autonomously, i.e., without a driver on board, in connected car parks.
