Moreton Bay embarked on this tender process with the view to having a range of IoT technology vendors vetted and prequalified as part of their smart city initiative. This means that a lot of the inevitable red tape is removed from a project, and smart city services that include parking, communications, contravention, and more, can be streamlined to deliver various improvements that benefit their community in a cohesive matter.
Located in Queensland, Australia, Moreton Bay experiences high influxes of visitors and residents to its attractions, and having a smart city roadmap means they will be well set up to serve their community for years to come.
Smart Parking’s long standing relationship with Moreton Bay has been very positive and mutually beneficial – in 2018 we were selected to install our parking management system in the North Lakes area, which we still support to this day. This project included over 350 vehicle detection sensors, VMS signage, and a customised wayfinding and car park availability app.
The Council is already using and familiar with SmartCloud – our online management platform – and as such enjoy greater visibility and control of their North Lakes parking site. Our system is infinitely scalable and can have any number of specific parking controls applied at a macro or micro level, meaning we can seamlessly integrate any project that eventuates under the prequalified supplier status.
“We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Moreton Bay Regional Council thus far, and applaud their foresight in creating this panel of preferred suppliers for smart city projects. By being forward-thinking and proactive in their procurement process, Moreton Bay will encounter less roadblocks and a far more streamlined way to achieve their smart city goals.”
