The XALOC system will improve traffic management in urban areas by reducing what is known as “agitated traffic”, which is caused by drivers circulating and looking for a place to park. This will allow for a substantial improvement in circulation fluidity, and contribute to effective reductions in pollution. In fact, research has shown that XALOC reduces the time taken to find a parking space by between five and seven minutes. The innovation also means that city councils will be better able to monitor and manage parking spaces by receiving real time information 24 hours, seven days a week. Parking spots can be optimised, increasing occupancy and generating more local revenue. Sensors have even been designed to make them resistant to cleaning and even potential vandalism.
