See our latest article in IPWEA intouch where Larry Schneider talks on the topic of smart parking technologies. The full article can be found here and a short excerpt follows:
Although smart parking technologies can transform this experience, nationally recognised parking expert Larry Schneider says they’re a rarity in Australia.
“What I have found is that the allocation of smart city funds has not really focused on sophisticated parking technology. Which is surprising – a lot of this technology is reliable and it's proven. If it were to be installed, it would provide an immediate benefit not just on parking, but generally on access and convenience to get into cities,” he says.
We announced in the last few days that Larry Schneider has joined Level5design to bring his many years of experience to compliment the team starting from the beginning of July.
Larry is a national expert and adviser in parking management with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. He has worked both as a Director of one of the nation’s leading parking operators and equipment suppliers, and as a senior consultant to industry on parking for airports, city centres, hospitals, shopping areas, universities, commercial buildings and office precincts for many of Australia’s largest property owners. Larry was previously the President of Parking Australia for 6 years and the Manager of Luxmoore Parking.
Larry believes strongly in sustainable parking practices, education, and in the value of technology. He has facilitated many award-winning workshops in parking operations and management, and he has wide ranging expertise that includes the development of effective parking strategies, project management of new parking technologies and facility operations, and the investigation of better approaches to wayfinding signage, security, audit and compliance. Larry has reviewed and prepared parking strategies and policies for many state government departments and more than 40 local government authorities in Australia and New Zealand.
Earlier today Peter Damen, Level5design CEO, was quoted as saying “It is really fantastic to have access to Larry and all that he brings. He is the most experienced parking professional in Australia and our clients will now directly benefit from him helping them to find more innovative and effective ways to improve their operations and generate better outcomes.”

The latest 29 June 2018 edition of Big Rigs Magazine includes a feature article from me on the topic of jobs and automation in the trucking sector titled "Its time to speed up the tech for the greater good". The digital edition of the article can be viewed for free here. It is a copy of the blog and social media article that I posted back in May (scroll down a bit and you we see a copy that you can read a bit more easily titled "Innovation and Automation in the Trucking Sector").
