Costa Rica is rapidly developing and increasingly recognized for its commitment to sustainability by ranking third in 2014’s Global Green Economy Index behind Sweden and Norway a notable accomplishment for such a small country.
London Underground has over 60 car parks with over 11,000 spaces. With the help of our partners Smart Parking, we have released live data showing available spaces for 25 of these car parks. We are seeing whether we can expand the feed to cover all London Underground car parks in the future.
In Australia the only genuine application of IoT comes from the ACT, who are currently undertaking a ‘smart parking’ trial. This system can alert drivers on parking space availability before they leave their location or as they arrive at the parking space.
The struggle to find parking in city centres may be over thanks to new smart parking technology. About 3000 high-tech parking sensors, capable of detecting when a vehicle has occupied a parking space, are to be installed in Wellington's CBD by bay sensor technology company Smart Parking.
BAD parkers beware: traffic wardens are to test technology that will finally give them the upper hand when it comes to ticketing drivers. The system uses sensors buried in parking spaces, which notify wardens if cars are parked illegally. If the trial is successful, the technology could be introduced to allow wardens to identify where overstayers are parked without having to patrol the streets.
The IT industry, in all of its sectors, is constantly evolving to provide better services and technological capabilities to users, and the parking industry is no different.
Global-leading parking solutions provider parks fixed line communication and turns to mobile connectivity for rapid and secure deployments across the UK
A London council is using groundbreaking technology to crack down on inconsiderate drivers parking illegally in disabled bays.
Studies have shown that 30% of city traffic congestion is caused by people looking for somewhere to park. Our research indicates that the average time to find an available space is 14 minutes but using the app that is reduced to eight.
Significant demand for parking in Central London means that drivers can spend an average of 15 minutes looking for available spaces. While drivers search and wait for availability, they continually contribute to the congestion and air pollution of the Capital. The distribution of vehicles across parking spaces can also be massively uneven; under-used parking areas are regularly in close proximity to saturated areas and drivers unaware of available spaces nearby.
Smart Parking Limited (ASX:SPZ) wins a 12 month car parking sensor trial in the A.C.T.
Work on the trial of smart parking technology in the Manuka shopping precinct will begin next week, ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr has announced. The 12-month trial will cost around $330,000 and will roll out in the first quarter of 2016, once all of the car park sensors, real-time traffic signs and smartphone applications have been installed
The ACT Government will hold a 12 month trial of "smart parking'" in the busy Manuka shopping precinct at the start of next year. Ground sensors will be installed to gather real-time parking information, which will then be relayed to drivers through a smartphone app and traffic signs.
The UK town that will be one of the pilot sites for autonomous vehicle testing later in the year, is expanding its ‘smart parking’ system, which was deployed in early 2015 as another mobility pilot project.
Hours spent crawling round Cardiff’s streets to try to find a parking space could be a thing of the past when a new pilot scheme of “smart parking” is expanded in the city. There are already 225 sensors installed in the city but another 57 have been put in place.
The Smart Parking Trial scheme which launched in Cardiff this summer has been expanded to cover the Cathays Park area of the city. A further 57 Smart Parking RFID-equipped SmartEye vehicle detection sensors, linked via SmartLink data transmitters have been installed in addition to the original 225 sensors which were originally installed in West Grove, The Walk, Museum Avenue, North Road, Museum Place, Park Place, Wellfield Road, Albany Road, Severn Road Car Park and Sofia Gardens Car Park (access road to the car park).
