Parking Ticket Machine As Communication Channel
An excellent concept to use the ubiquitous devices as a means to improve urban infrastructure.
‘City Tickets’ is a conceptual project by designer Mayo Nissen that uses parking ticket machines as a communication medium between citizens and their local authorities. The idea is to enable people to use short forms printed from the embedded receipt printer to detail problems and suggestions for their local areas and submit them to civic officials. The forms will be prepared with local maps to indicate the exact location of a problem so that it can be routed to the appropriate department for a quicker response. The ticket machine can also dispense local authorities’ action lists of issues to tackle, in order to make their work more transparent and accountable.
