Urbiotica, a global IoT technology provider for smart cities, announced its collaboration with EMS and IoTBlue to deliver a complete Smart Parking solution at Tech Park New Borg Al Arab in Alexandria, Egypt.
This Smart Parking solution aims to simplify the flow of traffic and reduce congestion by providing real-time information about parking availability and accessibility. This information will be transmitted in real-time to guide drivers and avoid unnecessary traffic and pollution in the area. The solution will also allow Tech Park to monitor the use of its parking areas and internal roads based on the information provided from installed sensors.
The strategic alliance between Urbiotica, EMS, and IoTBlue supports Egypt’s vision towards digital transformation and its plans to promote the country’s innovative and investment-friendly environment. The three companies will be working together to develop an end-to-end solution that transforms parking as we know it through the Internet of Things (IoT).
Urbiotica will provide 200 U-Spot magnetic sensors for installation at Tech Park’s designated parking areas to detect the occupational status of each parking spot. The data from these sensors will then be managed by IoTBlue’s Cervello Smart City Platform, whereby Cervello will collect, analyze, and visualize the data to provide information about parking availability and guide drivers to their nearest vacant parking space. EMS, in turn, will be responsible for fulfilling the solution in accordance with the project requirements and smart city best practices. As a large audiovisual systems integrator specialized in the IoT and light current industry, EMS will also be responsible for the successful implementation and management of the solution.
