Future Cities Management Project

Ethos is undertaking a research project investigating the feasibility and potential for commercialisation of a Future Cities Parking Management Platform. Following the successful completion of an initial feasibility study, Ethos has secured a second round of funding from Innovate UK for a two-year project commencing April 2015.

Our initial area of focus is in “smart parking” solutions with activities ranging from the analysis and deployment of physical parking sensors; to data capture, publishing and analytics; and the development of applications and services to assist citizens and local authorities.

Open Parking Platform

A core part of our project is the design and delivery of an open data platform to support a wide range of parking related data and services. We have assembled a collaborative team of leading edge technology enterprises, specialists in open data, linked data and parking sensor networks. Integrating these technologies for the first time will create a multi-city, open data platform.

This early prototype site is undergoing active development and should be considered pre-alpha release, and is not yet intended for public consumption. Datasets, formats, functionalities and services are all likely to change without notice.

For further information about the project, or to convey comments or suggestions, please contact Martin de Heaver (sensors, collaboration, or commercialisation) or Ian Millard (open data platform).
