Looking for an empty parking lot whenever you hit the city center during peak hours can be a nightmare, and in some cities, the sky high parking rates are definitely not a deterrent at all, as lack of space might be the number one issue at hand. Well, I don’t suppose that if you are driving one of the newer rides from Mercedes-Benz, you can afford a chauffer, but for those who prefer to drive themselves around instead of being driven, getting a prime parking spot is another issue which money cannot solve. Well, Mercedes-Benz has come up with something different, where the Mercedes-Benz Tweet Fleet will work in tandem with its Active Parking Assist, resulting in your car tweeting you whenever it detects empty parking spaces. This happens in downtown Stuttgart only at the moment, where a tweet containing GPS data will be sent each time it passes by an empty parking space. Definitely useful, but will it be implemented in different cities worldwide?
