In 2008, IEM has installed 88 PrestoEuropa parking metres in the French city of Bourg-en-Bresse. As part of a new parking policy for 2017, the community has entrusted us once again the modernisation of its fleet with decreased costs thanks to the retrofitting of the automatic machines in place.
Easier access to the parking and modernization of its operation are the key elements of the new parking policy of the city of Bourg-en-Bresse. The setting of a free time equal to 30 minutes requires the input of the license plate and the ease of use of parking meters is also due to the new means of payment, such as credit card.
In order to modernise the existing fleet at a lower cost, 88 PrestoEuropa pay and display machines have been retrofitted. New interfaces have therefore been switched with the older generations; they include an alphanumeric keypad and payment by credit card with contact and contactless. This operation allows reusing of the cabinet, cashbox and printer of the automatic machines that can still operate well for nearly 10 years. The devices do not need to be moved.
Always looking for new technologies and features for its parking metres, the R&D team at IEM is developing equipment that can be integrated both in the latest generation of automatic machines and in the machines already installed. This modularity allows our customers to easily adapt their parking facilities to developments in the market for a better service to users.
