First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Siemens is demonstrating its new Intelligent Parking system at the ITS European Congress in Glasgow this week, where product manager Priscilla Boyd will present Intelligent Parking – Where ITS and Smart Cities unite in Theatre 1 on Thursday 09 June at 9:00am. The paper explores the integration of intelligent parking bay sensing technologies with traffic management systems, the impact that parking has on traffic and how traffic management can be used to mitigate those issues including future integration with connected and autonomous vehicles.
The system uses sensors fitted to detect individual parking bay or car park occupancy. The data is transmitted to the Siemens Stratos traffic management system via IP connectivity using the Intelligent Parking Access Point, with the data generated being utilised for applications that range from real-time driver information to linking data to payment or enforcement services.
