Truck drivers consistently have difficulty finding areas to safely park and rest. The FHWA reports that more than 83% of drivers routinely took longer than 30 minutes to find parking, and 37 State DOTs reported problems with commercial vehicle parking. Drivers who have not located parking before reaching their hours of service limits are often forced to park illegally or unsafely, often on the shoulders of highways, on off-ramps or at abandoned facilities. This loss of productivity adds six percent or more to labor costs associated with moving goods.
Since 2003, Intelligent Imaging Systems has successfully integrated hardware and software solutions for commercial vehicle safety applications at roadside deployments in over 25 states. Our system design quality increases both service lifetime and system performance, while lowering total cost of ownership.

The FMCSA CVISN Program has determined that projects such as real-time trucking parking systems are eligible for expanded CVISN funding.
Intelligent Imaging Systems has the technology and experience to design and deploy truck parking management systems for state agencies that accurately collect and transmit truck parking data. As a systems integrator, Intelligent Imaging Systems works with state agencies to deploy the sensor system of their choice to meet their performance and budget requirements. These systems can include inductive loops to count vehicles entering and exiting the parking area, Automated License Plate Reader systems to identify and match entrance and exit events, and wireless in-ground vehicle sensors for high performance wireless battery operated in-ground systems.
Our sister company, Drivewyze, is a commercially available platform that is perfectly suited to deliver real-time parking availability information to drivers. Drivewyze has the unique ability to disseminate truck parking information directly to drivers through mobile software deployed on existing in-cab technologies including smart phones, tablets and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs). Drivewyze is ideally positioned to deliver this information based on our ELD partnership distribution which includes the largest fleet management device companies in the industry.
