NC State grads create app that makes finding a parking spot a cinchOctober 12, 2017 | WBTV
The “dropark” app aims to change all that with a smartphone and a sensor placed in a parking space that detects your automobile.
Mahdi Inaya, an NC State ECE alumnus is founder of dropark. He works with a group of engineers who got their start in the NCSU’s Product Innovation Lab.
“We want to let people know where they can park in real time and make sure by the time they get there the space is available to them,” Inaya said.
