PARIS, Nov. 19–A service starting next month may help soothe the nerves of harried Parisian drivers: it could help them locate a nearby parking spot using a cell phone or GPS navigation device. The system will monitor about 120 garages across Paris. Using their cell phones, drivers will be able to find out whether a nearby garage is open and has available parking spots.
Eight companies are participating: Orange and SFR, the two leading French mobile networks; Canal TP, Navx and V-Trafic, which specialize in travel and navigation software; consulting firms Setec and Carte Blanche Conseil; and New Technology for Citizens, a group of companies that provides travel services.”
