ParkHelp is a company that specializes in improving mobility and sustainability through the management of parking spaces in cities; a task that it carries out in both indoor parking facilities and in blue zones (metered street parking).
Population growth on a world scale and the resulting increase in vehicle numbers makes their concentration in public and urban areas more of a problem for our society every day. Between 18% and 25% of all moving cars in a city are looking for a parking space, a figure which aggravates the situation.
In addition, ParkHelp solutions encompass guidance systems, LED lighting, signage inside parking facilities and before and after parking systems such as Find Your Car. All of this is integrated into a single management software system which controls lighting and dynamic signage and produces all kinds of statistics and important savings for the running of a parking facility.
The system operates via a sensor in every parking space which detects the vehicle, and panels which inform and guide users in real-time towards available spaces in a specific street or area.
ParkHelp provides an effective solution to guarantee the success of mobility policies supporting sustainability in cities.
This involves an improvement in urban traffic management and sustainability with energy savings (fuel) and less pollution (CO and NO2 emissions).
ParkHelp’s range of solutions can be adapted to the clients’ needs, projecting its technological options in a simple way thanks to a scalable system. Based on each client’s needs, this system ranges from a very basic solution to an integrated mobility project.
ParkHelp’s objective is to provide society with solutions to the worldwide mobility problem through a range of new products and services with a high-tech component.
All of these have been designed to improve time management, mobility and the sustainability of cities using different intelligent guidance systems for parking.
ParkHelp has three projects in the On-street sector, in the cities of Sant Cugat del Vallés, Marbella and Malaga.
