The Audi factory located in Ingolstadt -Germany- has a parking lot with a capacity of more than 5,000 spaces. With so many parking spaces, a system needed to be implemented that would optimise the use of the spaces and reduce the vehicle flow caused by cars looking for free spaces, so that workers would not waste any time looking for parking and could go to work more relaxed and satisfied.
Urbiotica’s proposal is based on the installation of 22 wireless parking capacity sensors to detect vehicles entering and leaving each sector, in order to communicate the number of free spaces. Being an area with delimited entrances and exits, the guidance project could be deployed with only 22 sensors to monitor the 5,000 spaces.
Parking at Audi is now far smoother and quicker. Thanks to the improvements introduced, congestion has disappeared and vehicle flow in the parking area is now more efficient. This was how the CEO of MSR-Traffic, Harald Schmitt, our partner in Germany, explained it: “Urbiotica’s solution is also a very good system in terms of cost effectiveness”, said Schmitt, and added, “Audi and LGI are delighted to have a dynamic parking guidance system which they are thinking about extending”.
Urbiotica is a Barcelona-based company specialised in the design and development of latest generation sensing systems which provide real-time information on what is happening in areas of mobility, waste management and environmental monitoring. It currently has projects installed in more than 30 cities.
