Indiana Toll Road debuts smart parking network for truckers


PORTAGE, Ind. (AP) — The private consortium that operates the Indiana Toll Road has launched a smart parking network to help guide truckers to places to rest while they’re out on the road.

ITR Concession Co. has installed smart signage that uses sensors and cameras to allow commercial drivers to see how many parking spaces are available along upcoming exits at rest stops, truck stops and similar spots.

The Times of Northwest Indiana reports that IRT Concession says the smart parking network’s goal is to “create a safer and more efficient travel experience” for truckers by letting them better plan for rest stops on trips through Indiana along the tollway’s 157 miles.
