Parkopedia, a parking services provider, and CloudCar, a Silicon Valley company and provider of infotainment services for the automotive industry, announced a cloud-based integration to enable complete, predictive parking services through the CloudCar infotainment platform. With this partnership, CloudCar is also now authorized to provide Parkopedia’s parking services globally within their platform to OEMs as a fully integrated infotainment solution from a single supplier.

Parkopedia’s full portfolio of services, covering off-street (garage) and on-street static and dynamic data, as well as transactions, ensures that drivers are able to find parking locations across 15,000 cities and 89 countries, see predicted parking availability, make reservations and pay for parking. Through this collaboration, all of Parkopedia’s services are available today through the CloudCar platform. 

CloudCar further enriches the user parking experience through justDrive X, the future of the automotive personal assistant recently announced at the Consumer Electronic Show, that simplifies infotainment communication using natural voice interaction. With justDrive X, the car determines the driver’s destination either after making a restaurant or event reservation, using a personalized profile, from an entry on the driver’s calendar, or from an active navigation. justDrive X will then suggest optimal on or off-street parking options derived through the API integration with Parkopedia. For off-street parking, the driver can reserve and then pay for parking, all without taking their hands off the wheel.
