Why is Automotus providing this at no cost?

As a leader in automated curb management, Automotus has developed first-of-its-kind video analytics technology that allows cities to automatically analyze, monetize, and enforce all forms of curbside activity without incurring the upfront cost of hardware. We see a valuable opportunity in working with both cities and operators to create a win-win public/private partnership that pays for itself through willing operators who are granted dedicated curb access at a fair rate in areas where their drivers need it most. We are providing our technology at no cost as a direct response to the rapidly expanding number of stakeholders at the curb - freight, ride-hailing, and food delivery services. Automotus has partnership and revenue share agreements that allow us to provide our technology and services to both cities and operators.

How much revenue could this generate?

Depending on the number of designated loading zones, and based on historical data from existing vendors, we can provide a projection of revenue based on usage.

I am a driver and do deliveries or service calls as part of my profession.  How do I get access to Smart Zones in my city?

If you work for a fleet or larger company, check with your management to find out whether your company is already partnering with your city on this program.

What is Automotus?

Automotus helps cities manage and monetize commercial activity at the curb. Our comprehensive curb management platform enables cities to collect and analyze data to develop a curb space management plan, unlocking the ability to monetize all commercial activity through a fully automated curb management program that utilizes computer vision to automate payment and enforcement of designated “smart loading zones”. Automotus also works directly with commercial operators and fleets to help them operate in cities more efficiently by sharing real-time parking availability data and alerting them before they receive citations.
