Anyone looking for a parking space in the Swiss city of Zug will from now on be guided by electronic displays and traffic signs indicating free parking spaces. "Parking Guidance System Zug" is in operation since December and involves approximately 2.500 parking spaces. In this system Nedap’s SENSIT on-street parking sensors provide real-time occupancy information about individual parking spaces.
Finding a parking space can be nerve-wracking, especially for drivers who are not familiar with the city. That is until now. Thanks to the new integrated approach on the entire on- and off-street parking capacity. Prominent notice boards and dynamic signs inform drivers in the vicinity of the parking facilities and at the city entries about the currently available spaces, guiding them as quickly and efficient as possible to a available parking spot. The real-time parking status information can be requested online, always and anywhere.
SENSIT offers the city of Zug real-time parking status information. Nedap’s wireless in-ground parking bay sensors detect the real-time vehicle occupancy of individual outdoor parking spaces. With this valuable parking occupancy information, the city’s parking capacity can be effectively enforced and motorists can be guided efficiently. In Zug's new parking solution, Nedap's SENSIT was integrated with the systems of its partners Hectronic and Swarco.
In an official statement, the councilor Heinz Tännler explains:
"The Zug parking guidance system is an asset in several ways. It relieves the city from unnecessary search traffic, helps to save fuel and optimizes the availability of existing parking facilities. In short, the new solution is an advantage for many. These benefits have mayor impact on the city of Zug, which as a attractive canton capital and economic engine of the region relies heavily on the good accessibility of the city."
