Mobile Emergency Truck Parking Application

Maryland

In an effort to improve safety and communication among truck drivers along Maryland’s I-95 corridor, KCI created a smartphone-based application that would direct truck drivers to one of the 45 statewide safe park-and-ride facilities in the event of a heavy snowfall. This application not only designates which lots are available and accessible for larger trucks, but also displays users’ locational information via smartphone GPS on a map and incorporates directions and mileage to park-and-ride facilities based on the driver’s current location. Accessible on iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices, the application utilizes HTML 5, JavaScript, web services, ArcGIS Server, ArcSDE, and Oracle.
