Given the political significance and sheer size of the city, Moscow has done a meticulous screening of available smart parking technologies and opted for Worldsensing’s cutting-edge robust and reliable real-time sensor networking technology, complemented by smart phone applications for citizens and a control platform for municipalities and law enforcement. Lauded in local and international press, the technology has been trialed over the 2011/12 winter and is commercially operational since November 2012.
Worldsensing’s business partners in Moscow remark: “Traffic and parking are an enormous problem in Moscow. Choosing the right technology has been instrumental in making Moscow a viable Smart City, where we finally opted for Worldsensing’s technology since it offered numerous competitive advantages. Notably, their revolutionary radio technology does not require repeaters nor gateways to be mounted on lampposts, the sensors are utmost robust and can be embedded into the tarmac with detection being utmost reliable even without optical sensors which is a must in a snowy city like Moscow”.
Sant Cugat Deployments
The townhall of Sant Cugat, one of the largest satellite cities to Barcelona, has chosen Worldsensing’s smart parking solution as their preferred solution to solve the problem of monitoring load/unload zones and guide citizens and professionals alike.
“Sant Cugat has nominated Worldsensing as their Global Living-Labs Smart City Winner 2011 for their innovative smart urban transit solution FastPrk,” announced in Stockholm in May 2011.
After some initial discussions with the truly advanced and forward-thinking municipality, a problem area has been pinpointed where the smart parking sensors have been installed. The installation was carried out by a third party in a professional, timely and efficient manner since Worldsensing’s solution has been optimized for the use in the field.
Having had the choice between different smart parking solutions on the market, a European parking operator giant has opted for using Worldsensing’s FastPrk product. The choice was facilitated by the ability to easily install the solution and, thanks to a patented design, to maintain it. Equally important was the solution’s robustness and reliability when it came to detection ratios. Finally, the integrated design allowed us to offer the most cost-competitive solution on the market.
More rollouts are now to follow in Barcelona, with the ultimate aim to enhance the living conditions of the citizens. Early rollouts are done in more industrial and business districts, but expansions are expected into the crowded areas.
With Worldsensing’s smart parking solution FastPrk, Barcelona has hence done an important step towards becoming Europe’s leading Smart City.
Metropolitans worldwide are now enjoying FastPrk, Worldsensing’s cutting-edge smart parking system which efficiently guides citizens to their parking spot and helps municipalities to optimize their parking management
