Greece capital Athens trials Smart Parking’s real-time bay sensor parking solution

Smart Parking's real-time bay sensor parking solution in Athens

World-leading provider of car parking technology and parking management services Smart Parking is partnering with CiTRO Technology Solutions to trial its SmartPark space finding solution in the Greek capital.

Smart Parking is a $25m turnover global publicly listed business on the ASX (SPZ) with over 300 employees across Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. Over 40,000 SmartEye sensors to date have been deployed in cities across the globe including Melbourne, Auckland, London, Madrid, Dubai and Cape Town with over 15,000 deployed in Europe alone.

The Athens trial encompasses the installation of 43 V2 SmartEye sensors alongside SmartLink zone controllers in Skoufa Avenue, central Athens. The trial is part of DAEM’s exciting new automated smart operation for the controlled parking system of the Municipality of Athens to evaluate parking bay sensor technologies. DAEM is the pioneer in the application of new technologies offering reliable services to the demanding field of the local government sector.

Jim Short, Smart Parking’s EMEA Technology Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to trial SmartPark in Athens, and we look forward to demonstrating the value of the system within the capital”.Smart Parking sensor installation

The SmartEye sensors will provide never seen before kerbside management information and assist in fair use of the limited parking resource here in central Athens. Analysis of this management information will help long term strategy in the required number of disabled, reserved, public and resident bays. Future integration will also allow for guidance via Smartphone App and on-street VMS display boards".

Michael Petropoulos CEO of CiTRO Technology Solutions also commented: ‘When we started our collaboration with Smart Parking we quickly understood that we had made the best choice. As Smart Parking’s authorised representative for Greece we feel confident that we can implement similar projects in the Greek market by bidding on competitions or financing trials to those interested in parking technology. It was a challenge to install the trial system in Athens and we are proud that we did it with the support of Smart Parking and its personnel. CiTRO will continue to promote the trial project which will allow Municipalities to bring in more income and ultimately provide citizens a better quality of life.”
