The Town Council of Graz (Austria), through Q-Free , has decided to trial Worldsensing’s Smart Parking System, Fastprk, in order to offer a solution that guides drivers to parking spaces, through panels in the streets.
The Fastprk system will be able to assess KPI’s (key performance indicators) such as occupancy levels per hours and days of the week. Drivers will benefit from being guided to general and disabled parking spaces, while congestion, and thus pollution, are reduced.
The city will be able to establish the best strategy depending on occupancy in each area. After a first trial period, the implementation of Fastprk to other areas of the city will be considered. The system will also be scalable to other cities in Austria.
Worldsensing is a technological company founded by four engineers:
Ignasi Vilajosana, Xavier Vilajosana, Jordi Llosa and Mischa Döhler. Created in 2008 in Barcelona, it has offices in Barcelona and London and it has already become a referent within Smart City and IoT sectors, holding projects in 14 countries and counting on a team of 40 highly qualified employees.
Worldsensing revolutionises traffic management and the industrial world through solutions based on wireless sensored networks allowing detection and data capture in real time.
On one hand, its Traffic Division holds a unique traffic management portfolio for Smart Cities that includes Bitcarrier, a real-time traffic management solution, and its smart parking system Fastprk, holding the iconic project that transformed Moscow into a smart city (end of 2013) by deploying more than 12,000 parking sensors. On the other hand, its Industrial Division offers wireless monitoring solutions for civil infrastructures by deploying Loadsensing and by launching Spidernano, one of the world’s most advanced seismic acquisition systems.
