In spring 2015, Worldsensing installed 30 Fastprk sensors in the city of Lódz. The positive results and the high performance of the system, is the reason why Gliwice issued a tender (the first of its kind) for 300 sensors.
In 2014, Worldsensing signed an agreement with Polish company City Parking Group, with the aim to implement Worldsensing’s smart parking technology, Fastprk, in Poland. Today, the dream of smart city is closer than ever.
Fastprk can be connected to a wide variety of parking management solutions, including mobile payment platforms. Based on the occupancy data provided by the Fastprk platform, innovative models such as variable pricing strategies (e.g. increasing/decreasing the price on some days of the week or during special events such as football matches) and the promotion of certain commercial areas can be implemented. When connected to the payment method system, the authority can identify non-paying cars and with the use of a tablet app, parking wardens can work more effectively.
Fastprk allows local authorities to monitor and manage parking spaces, getting real time information 24hours/7days a week.
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.
