Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has installed around 2,000 Nedap sensors as part of its Smart Parking Project covering controlled parking at Al-Rigga and the World Trade Center areas.
Nedap’s smart parking sensors combine magnetic and infrared detection to enhance vehicle detection accuracy and provide real-time indication if a bay is empty or occupied. The company’s Sensit smart parking platform has been implemented and provides real-time information about individual parking spaces including the duration of parking events.
The number of available on- and off-street public parking spaces in the Al-Rigga area is then displayed in Arabic and English on dynamic message signs and the RTA’s smart phone app (which can also be used to pay for parking).
