What about a system for parking spot sharing ? I am using MonkeyPArking and I think their idea is good but implementation is poor. Suppose my Automatic equipped car, when it senses I am arriving at my parked car spot automatically shares my parking spot location ( and price ') :-)) to the community of Automatic users and let them know they can park there.
This would be done when the engine car starts so that the spot has effectively been released to other drivers.

That would be awesome. dynamically assigned free parking spots around the street, city and the world.

Hi Nuno! We changed the status of this idea to "not planned." You may have heard that MonkeyParking recently ran into some controversy about their app. For this reason, implementing a feature related to paying for a public parking spot isn't a viable option at this time. Here's a link to a related article.
