Audi brings automated parking to the Boston area

Audi and the city of Somerville are planning joint innovations for the city of the future on the east coast of the USA. Audi CEO Rupert Stadler and Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the context of the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona. They agreed to develop an urban strategy for Somerville, applying technologies for swarm intelligence or automated parking, and networking cars with traffic lights.

In the Memorandum of Understanding, Mayor Josef A. Curtatone and Rupert Stadler, chairman of the executive board of AUDI, agreed close cooperation in developing a new mobility strategy for Somerville. The focus is on exchanging know-how and testing new technologies. In Stadler’s words, “The intelligent car can unfold its enormous potential only in an intelligent city. Our joint work on urban innovations and the exchange and analysis of data are the key to beneficial swarm intelligence.” In the long term, the two sides aim to develop innovations that reduce the space requirement of automobiles in the city and increase the speed of traffic flow.
