Shyam Purkayastha, IBM Bluemix Dev blog
Jan 6 2016
Using IBM Bluemix and PubNub, Shyam gives a technical tutorial of how to build a parking meter app. The app uses Arduino to detect if a car is in the space, and a mobile app for drivers to find parking spaces. It’s all put together into a pretty cool prototype. The IBM Bluemix part is for the cloud based parking space management server.
