LocoMobi Inc. is pleased to announce the release of LocoMobi Global Data Server (GDS), LocoMobi’s new cloud-based toll infrastructure now links tolling, transit, and parking.
GDS connects cars, trucks and busses that allows LocoMobi to offer a full line of tolling cameras, mobile payments and tracking, in addition to full GPS tracking. LocoMobi’s proven end-to-end parking solution can now be installed at tolling highways or border crossings. This system links any vehicle to the entire transportation network across a city, state or country. GDS ensures that a uniform process is in place. This easy transition from freeway to any parking garage provides drivers the ease to bypass congestion as well as any need to interact with tickets, cards etc.
“With our recent acquisition of SMC, our unified system can now let you make a reservation, take you through the freeway and put you in a convenient parking facility or even a reserved space,” says LocoMobi Co-Founder and CEO Grant Furlane. “We believe we have the first full- scale transportation infrastructure management system in the world. At a time when the transportation ecosystem is rapidly changing, we are excited to be leading the charge.”
With LocoMobi’s successful implementation of Wuxi Transit system we have all the ingredients of the full Smart City Concept.

LocoMobi, Inc. is reinventing parking and transportation technology in the era of cloud, mobile, low-cost hardware and Internet of Things. LocoMobi was the very first to offer a cloud-based license plate recognition (LPR) system with a complete revenue engine that also provided a management system for virtual permitting systems, violation and citation management. The company also designed and implemented the first LPR-based system incorporating payment stations and barrier gates, which was integrated into a single cloud-based system. A garage using a LocoMobi LPR system knows every vehicle that enters and exits and links all payments to the vehicle’s license plate. For parking owners and operators, this is of immense value as they have full knowledge of and receive payment from every single parker. The revenue gains after deploying a LocoMobi system can significantly increase the value of the parking asset.
LocoMobi’s Mobile payment application, LocoMobi Quickpay™, also complements any parking facility as an alternative to the payment station utilizing the same rate engine and cloud portal. QuickPay can be used standalone, integrated with legacy hardware at low cost, or as part of a fully integrated LocoMobi system to deliver new value for drivers as well as parking owners and operators.
For drivers, the combination of LocoMobi’s QuickPay mobile technology and gate kit with LPR and product set leads to an ideal parking experience: a driver registers one time with the QuickPay app and enters his or her license plate and credit card. The driver then drives into a garage, LPR cameras recognize the vehicle and the gate opens automatically. When the driver is ready to leave, he or she drives to the exit gate, the LPR cameras recognize the car again, bill the credit card saved to the QuickPay account, the gates open and the driver exits–all in a matter of seconds. A similar system works in non-gated scenarios as well. For owners and operators, LPR transactions can now be linked to registered drivers, enabling customer knowledge and communications.
LocoMobi has also recently introduced a full system for in-garage guidance, significantly helping drivers find open spaces and minimizing time spent driving around looking for spaces. The process system even helps users locate their car upon return to the facility. And more recently, LocoMobi introduced fully-integrated reservations and yield management solution, enabling drivers to park with confidence and enabling parking owners and operators to maximize the value of every space.
LocoMobi’s product offerings are unique in their level of comprehensiveness, innovation, and price: installations typically have twice the functionality at approximately half the price of competitive systems. LocoMobi’s innovations have recently garnered worldwide attention when the Company was a winner of the award for 2014 TiE50 best new technology in the world, where over 2800 companies from 27 countries were considered. The awards were presented at the Annual TiE50 conference held in the Silicon Valley.
LocoMobi has partnerships with most of the major parking operators in the U.S. and Canada, and is deployed in parking garages and lots, hotels, malls and theme parks and on-street in major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
