Through its partner, Q-free. Worldsensing has installed 51 Fastprk sensors in the city of Ljubljana (Slovenia). These sensors, installed in each parking space of Cigaletova Ulica Rd in the center of the city, send continuous information to a single gateway, which is connected to the Internet for real-time data transmission.
Ljubljana wants to be a green city. A driver on average currently spends 20 to 40 minutes a day searching for a parking space. This is not only a waste of time and a reason for frustration, but it also impacts the environment negatively. Traffic jams, noise and increased CO2 emissions are just a few of the many negative consequences.
Worldsensing’s Smart Parking solution makes a significant contribution to reducing congestion in the areas where it has been deployed, helping to create a greener city.
Our Smart Parking solution also allows the city to monitor and manage the parking spaces 24/7, obtaining real-time occupancy information and correlating it with payment information.
The system informs drivers where to find vacant parking spaces via smart phones or electronic street panels.
The Fastprk Mobile App is free, available for Android and iOS devices, easy to use, reduces search times by between 35-60% and also facilitates payment via smartphones.
