Located near the French capital Paris, the innovative city Les Mureaux successfully introduced smart parking sensors to monitor parking spaces in blue zones this year.
Information about the real-time availability of parking spaces is being transmitted to motorists via a large number of variable electronic signs along the streets. This real-time information guides traffic effectively and to improve the utilization of the existing parking capacity in the blue zones. The result is less congestion, safer streets and a more attractive city for visitors and local retailers.
The wireless vehicle detection system SENSIT not only “sees” whether or not a single parking bay is occupied, it also detects how long a space has been occupied. The status information (e.g. available, occupied and overstay) is wirelessly relayed to a parking officer, working with dedicated software. In order to get to know the real-time status of hundreds of parking spots in Les Mureaux, the SENSIT system was installed by the French company TTS (Trafic Technologie Système).
Nedap is the developer and manufacturer of SENSIT: a network of wireless parking sensors which detect vehicle occupancy at every single parking space. SENSIT collects parking data and shares that information with third party parking guidance, enforcement and intelligent transport systems. This smart parking technology decreases search traffic, improves utilization of parking capacity and reduces of CO2-emissions. Nedap currently works with partners and cities worldwide to implement the SENSIT system.
