Westminster Council will begin installing smart parking sensors across its entire road network from next week.
The sensors will detect whether a bay is vacant or not.
Combined with an app that allows drivers to view a real-time map of parking spaces, it will direct them to an empty space.
Click's Spencer Kelly takes a look at the new app.
