Information and communication technologies (ICT)
With the rise of the IoT, applications have become smarter and connected devices give rise to their exploitation in all aspects of a modern smart city, and thus, modern parking. As the volume of the collected data increases, AI techniques are applied to further enhance the intelligence and the capabilities of an application. Sotefin utilises ICT so that it enhances the quality and performance of its systems such as energy and retrieval time so that there is a reduction in resource consumption, wastage, and overall costs.
Since 2014, the company is financially growing year-after-year at the rate of 50 per cent and projecting this growth to continue for long term as parking space is becoming the scarce resource in urban areas. Also, the Smart Cities mission is giving importance and priority to develop such parking systems in the smart cities proposed by the Government of India.
