Designed by BSU IT with commuter students in mind, our SmartParking module within the BSU Mobile app shows where parking is available on-campus so you can get your car parked and get to class without needlessly driving around in search of an available space. You can also get turn-by-turn directions to a selected lot using your smartphone's GPS navigation.
How does it work?
BSU parking stickets have embedded RFID chips that tell our sensors when cars enter and leave SmartParking-enabled parking lots. These readings are transmitted to the app which will display space availability as green (high), yellow (medium), or red (low/limited). Only entrance/exit data is obtained by the sensors; no personal or vehicle information is captured or stored with SmartParking.
Please drive carefully and observe all applicable laws regarding cell phone use while driving. We recommend using a hands-free attachment in your car while navigating.
