Israeli company Anagog has claimed its parking algorithm that identifies where and when a car has been parked means that it has built the ‘first real time global parking map of the world’.
It has done so by using crowdsourced parking information from apps that have integrated the Anagog service and after a pilot program in Israel released a visualization of a day in the life of Tel Aviv’s overcrowded parking reality. To date, Anagog has more than 100,000 users in Israel and 500,000 users worldwide.
An example of Anagog apps is Anagog FindMyCar which utilizes Anagog patented algorithm to automatically remember when and where the smartphone holder parked his car and get walking directions back to the car. It has also formed a new partnership with Parx, subsidiary of OTI. As part of the partnership, Parx integrated Anagog’s engine into the EasyPark service, allowing subscribers from more 130 cities worldwide to automatically get push notifications telling them when a relevant parking spot is about to be vacated.
“We want to help drivers find parking quicker and waste less time, money, and pollution. Our technology is a ready-made, global product for navigation systems, cellular operators, map providers, car manufacturers, and municipalities who are constantly working to provide tailored information to their audience”, said Yaron Aizenbud, Co-CEO of Anagog.
