Urbiotica is a Spanish company specialized in designing and developing latest generation sensing systems which provide real-time information on what’s happening in areas of mobility, waste management and environmental monitoring. The company was established in Barcelona in 2008 with a very clear foundational vision: technology based on wireless sensors would transform how we manage our cities.
Today Urbiotica offers the market end to end solutions for outdoor regulated parking, parking guidance and parking at shopping centers among other cross solutions aiming on city management.
U-Spot: Wireless parking sensor technology
U-Spot is a battery-powered wireless parking sensor which detects the occupancy and rotation in real time as well as the arrival and the departure of any vehicle, enabling the precise calculation of the parking duration, in a specific parking space.
U-Spot is able to instantly detect up to 50 rotations per day and it enables rapid adaptation to changes in its environment in real time. It minimizes the impact of elements that influence with the vehicle detection, such as the presence of vehicles in adjacent spaces, new urban metallic furniture or electromagnetic interferences. Its design makes it suitable for different parking situations (regulated parking, shopping centres, loading and unloading areas, truck parking).
Maintaining the intelligence in the cloud, where sophisticated decision algorithms are applied, means that the sensor does not process any data itself, ensuring a lifetime up to 10 years. Furthermore, any improvement or change can be implemented immediately in all the sensors. This eliminates the management and cost of handling sensors in case of any software updates.
It is possible to install the sensors in both the parking space and on the curb or pavement without having to remove the parked vehicles. It is a wireless installation and requires minimum engineering work.
Urbiotica solutions are implemented in more than 30 cities all around the world.
