The French Parking Revolution

The French are open to apply innovative sensors to monitor the real-time occupancy of outdoor parking spaces. At several locations across the country on and off street parking spaces are equipped with Nedap’s SENSIT system. To make parking lots easy findable, to guide travelers to free parking bays smoothly and safely and to make shopping attractive again.

Four examples of recent SENSIT installations in France are:

TGV station Aix-en-Provence

In France, high-speed trains are an effective way to travel from one city to another. Aix-en-Provence is the first TGV station with wireless parking sensors in use. Real-time parking information is displayed on signs to guide visitors towards available parking spaces quickly and conveniently.


In the city centre of Rozay-en-Brie motorists are guided to available spaces at two outdoor parking lots. SENSIT sensors detect whether or not a bay is occupied. This offers a great service to visitors who want to run a quick errand. Also, the result of this solution is a higher rate of vehicle occupancy at existing facilities.


Les Mureaux

In the shadow of Paris, the city of Les Mureaux is a pilot city for innovative and sustainable mobility. In this forward thinking city the wireless parking sensor system SENSIT is installed to monitor the real-time usage of on-street parking spaces. Les Mureaux
