Parking Radar goes LIVE

Today we are pleased to announce the release of the Parking Radar App on the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store (iOS to follow). Parking Radar is a free (and ad free) crowd-sourcing service for you and the community.  By interacting with the app, you are able to designate parking spaces, either manually by telling the app that you have parked at your current location, or automatically by letting the app determine if you have parked (based on a speed-detection algorithm).  This information is then available to the community in real-time via a moving-map display.  When traveling and looking for a parking space, the app can help you find your next parking space with greater ease. The app is the brainchild of Steve Adler (of Sacred Chocolate) and Yusuf Jafry (of FlyLogical). Steve and Yusuf met almost 30 years ago when they were engineering grad students at Stanford University, California. Their first project together, at Stanford, was to design a re-usable re-entry space vehicle: Steve designed the heat-shield from Chinese White Oak, and Yusuf designed the orbital trajectory to guide the vehicle to touch down on the Great Salt Lake in Utah, for ease-of-recovery. With a mutual fascination of the emergence and convergence of Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and Crowd-Sharing, Parking Radar is their first joint foray into this new and exciting space. If anyone says it isn't rocket science, it is, actually : )
