Minnesota to use cameras at truck stops, rest areas to help truckers find parking

The Minnesota DOT announced a testing program at a rest area in which cameras in the parking lot will find and notify truckers of available parking.

Open Roads announced Nov. 25 that the state had awarded the contract for deployment to the intelligent transportation system provider, in partnership with TCS International. The system will use wireless roadway sensors to gauge available rest area truck parking spaces in real time, which will be communicated to truckers via dynamic parking guidance roadside signs and the 511 Traveler Information platform.

A completion date for deployment was not immediately available.
