Smart Parking in Germany

Urbiotica German Projects

Urbiotica’s Outdoor Parking sensing system keeps its first place with regards to the outdoor Smart Parking technologies used in Germany, thanks to the new projects deployed there during 2018 by means of our partner and distributor in the area, MSR-Traffic. A dozen of new projects for both public (cities) and private customers (companies and supermarkets) were installed in 2018, summing up a total of 10.000 outdoor spaces monitored in the region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) since 2013.

Among them, cities like Erfurt, Dingolfing, and Pfaffenhofen have made a step forward to their Smart City goals through the acquisition of outdoor guidance systems based on U-Spot single space detections and U-Flow counting solutions. Today they deliver real-time parking information to drivers, which facilitate the search for free parking spots and thus improve the mobility experience and citizen satisfaction.

Smart Parking Projects in Spain

Urbiotica Spanish Projects

Spain is massively adopting Smart Parking systems to enhance the drivers’ journey into towns’ city centers. In 2018, many parking operators and cities have invested in outdoor guidance solutions to help people reduce the time looking for a free spot. Badajoz, Palamos, Alzira, Aranda del Duero or Guadalajara are examples of cities that have decided to modernize their parking approach through the deployment of U-Spot single space parking sensors for on-street spaces and efficient Variable Message Signs to deliver real-time parking information to drivers and thus improve the mobility experience and citizen satisfaction.

2019 is beginning on the right foot with some new ambitious deployments already confirmed by cities such as Las Palmas, Alcala de Henares, Valencia or Lugo. These projects will also allow Urbiotica to deliver key improvements and add new use cases.

PARKING GUIDANCE

On-street Parking Guidance

Parking guidance in cities is a basic part of achieving the traffic reduction objectives, which is now a priority for most of them as congestion is already chronic in many cities. One of the big challenges for Public Administration and Urban Service Managers nowadays is to reduce the congestion produced by the search for parking in order to improve mobility within the city and consequently, the environmental quality and well-being citizens.

Parking guidance

The solution:

The solution we offer consists in equipping each parking space of the city streets or entrances and exits of a delimited parking area with wireless sensors that detect the presence of vehicles in the first case, or when they pass over in the second, to transform this data into useful parking information for the management and more efficient use of parking.

Dynamic Message Signs

On Street Parking Guidance - Click to Enlarge

Benefits:

  • Drivers are guided through the dynamic message signs and/or user mobile Apps to the areas with available spaces avoiding the circulation of vehicles in search of a free space
  • The use of the different parking areas is optimized thanks to real-time information on where to find free spaces
  • Information regarding the availability of parking allows users to consult the status and plan their journey based on real options
  • It reduces up to 30% the traffic generated by vehicles driving around in search of a parking space
  • Informing about the lack of free spaces avoids unnecessary traffic and favors the use of public transport

Park&Ride

In Park and Ride parking areas drivers may park and get to their final city destinations through softer methods, making city centers much nicer and healthier. They key to success is in a well-integrated information system giving detailed indications about the door-to-door multimodal trip. Plus, drivers must be able to easily find a place to park at de P&R areas.

Park&Ride

The solution:

Consists in equipping their entrances and exits and reserved spaces areas with wireless sensors. The sensors detect vehicles passing over in the first case and their presence in the second, to generate useful real time parking availability information.

User Guidance

Park&Ride - Click to Enlarge

Benefits:

  • Informing about parking availability and the alternative transportation options helps drivers decide to leave their car before entering the city
  • Information regarding the availability of parking is accessible through the Internet, allowing users to consult it and plan their journey based on real time options
  • Drivers are guided through the dynamic messaje signs and/or mobile Apps to the areas with available spaces avoiding the circulation of vehicles in search of a free space to park
  • This guidance reduced significantly the urban traffic generated by vehicles driving around in search of a parking space. It means a proportional decrease in the pollution generated
  • Reducing the city center chaos makes citizens more willing to travel to the center for shopping


Companies

Parking areas in large offices, factories and logistic centers can be chaotic. The difficulty for employees to find parking spaces when traveling to work affects their productivity and company loyalty. Companies seek solutions to improve accessibility and parking experience.

Parking Areas

CONTROL

Loading and Unloading Parking

Areas reserved for Loading and Unloading operations have a key role in urban mobility. Every day a multitude of deliveries or good collections depend on the availability of a nearby parking space. In most cities, these are the areas where most parking infractions occur. The control must be ensured and efficient.

Unloading Parking

The solution:

The solution allows the service managers to be remotely alerted of possible offences such as time exceed or unauthorized parking.

U-SPOT M2M

The benefits:

  • The identification and control of the users parked in each parking space achieves a drastic infraction reduction in the loading and unloading area
  • The control of the maximum authorized time respect increases the rotations in the area
  • The information provided to the users together with a greater parking availability eases and speeds up finding a free space for loading or unloading
  • The real-time visualization of the alerts allows the optimization of the control operations as well as the resources destined to this management
  • The reduction of infractions and compliance with regulations reduces the number of vehicles double parked
  • The authorized users have real time information about where to find an available place

 

 

People with Reduced Mobility (PRM)

Spaces reserved for People with Reduced Mobility play a key role in the mobility of these people. These are parking spaces with some characteristics that facilitate their mobility, such as the minimum dimensions to handle their chairs, or proximity to pedestrian accesses and entrances to buildings to avoid long distances.

Reduced Mobility

The solution:

These spaces are only authorized to people who have the European Union parking card for people with disabilities. With our solution you can guide users directly to the available spaces and at the same time remotely alert the services in charge of surveillance when unauthorized parking violation occur.

  • Authorized users have real-time information on where to find and available space
  • The real-time visualization of the alerts allows the optimization of the control operations as well as the resources destined to this management, being able to prioritize the areas with more infractions

 


Free Limited Time

Offering citizens a parking policy based on short time for free parking is in this case a very attractive option for public administrations. The challenges of each choice do not lie so much on the possibility of implementing the rules, but on controlling it. The administration enforcement capacity is the key for such a policy. Success in controlling the respect of the maximum established time will be the key to the users respect of it.

Free Limited Time

The solution:

Urbiotica’s solution for the control of on-street free parking allows the service managers and local police to be remotely alerted of time exceeded sessions and thus only intervene to fine offending users.

Free Limited Time

  • The real-time visualization of the alerts allows the optimization of the control operations as well as the resources destined to this management, being able to prioritize the areas with more infractions
  • The control of the maximum authorized time respect increases the rotations in the area and therefore impacts favorably on the space availability
  • The permanent space availability allows people to reduce their time looking for parking, with a great and positive impact on traffic congestion, pollution and the city attractiveness
  • The citizens benefit from a free and efficient service as they have access to real time information about where to find an available space

 

Pay-by-space

Most of the on-street parking enforcement operations are carried out systematically, street by street and without any previous knowledge of any possible fraud incurred by users. It remains as one of the last urban service with such a lack of efficiency. The challenge for city managers and parking operators lies on the capacity of improving and optimizing the service by the means of implementing technology.

Pay By Space

The solution:

The pay-by-space model using single space detection parking sensors offers many benefits regarding the traditional service. It brings efficiency to the control as well as real time information for the users related to parking space availability. Urbiotica’ solution allows the service managers and local police to be remotely alerted in case of payment default or time exceeded sessions.
