get-fined-for-parking-automaticallyADELAIDE – The Internet of Things appears to be happening in Adelaide after a suburban council said it plans extend an automated parking fines system after a trial found it to be far more effective than paying parking inspectors. Charles Sturt Council in Adelaide’s western suburbs tested out the electronic parking technology near the Entertainment Centre in inner suburban Hindmarsh, according to an ABC report.

The Adelaide-developed technology uses cameras to check number plates, coupled with wireless sensors which are built into the road to detect anyone overstaying the Council’s time limits.

Offenders automatically receive infringement notices by post.
