3rd parking guidance system deployed for Amazon in Spain

After San Fernando de Henares (Madrid) and El Prat (Barcelona), Amazon Fulfillment Center selected Urbiotica again to deploy the parking guidance system for its new facility in Illescas (Toledo). Satisfied by the previous experiences the company decided to propose a similar experience to its employees in Toledo, reinforcing its image of a cutting-edge company at first sight.

Thanks to the real-time availability information provided, drivers will be guided dynamically to one of the 2 parking areas offered by the site, in order to smooth the traffic flow at peak hour and ease the arrival of the vehicles. Two impressive ITINERE Variable Message signs will display the parking information collected by Urbiotica’s U-Flow Parking system deployed, which will be counting all vehicles entering and exiting the areas and communicating it to the U-Admin cloud platform.

Detail of the project:

  • 12 U-Flow parking sensors
  • 2 ITINERE VMS
  • U-Admin Parking Control Center platform
  • Turnkey project delivered with the installation and set-up of the system

New free mobile App completes Urbiotica’s parking guidance system

From now on Urbiotica through a recent partnership, offers customers a free multi platform (iOS, Android, Windows phone)  mobile application to complete its  parking guidance system. The mobile application eases the search of free parking spots, allowing the drivers to better plan their trip in advance by consulting the parking availability from their departure point.

In addition to indoor and outdoor parking availability, the app also delivers key information for the users: prices, regulation and opening periods of the parking facilities, among others.

 

 

The same parking information is also available on a public website and through different navigation channels (as built-in and autonomous GPS systems), maximizing this way the diffusion of the information to all people driving to destinations near the parking options.

6 customers have already adopted the app to complete their parking solutions in Spain, Germany , Malta and Argentina. Urbiotica expects to have some 20 cities connected by the end of the year.

Urbiotica sensorizes 1000 parking spots within the Rosario city IoT project

Rosario Municipality (Santa Fe, Argentina), adds IoT solutions at the service of citizens: 1000 sensorized parking spots to improve mobility at the city center.

 Rosario is the largest city in the province of Santa Fe and the third most populous city in the country. As is common in most of huge overpopulated cities, citizens support day-to-day annoying and endless traffic jams. In this specific case at Rosario’s city center, public parking spaces are a scarce. Great part of the bottlenecks are caused by vehicles searching for a free spot to park.

Tránsito Rosario, as the city concession parking holder, aimed to add IoT solutions at the service of the citizens. Our local partner Gradicom deployed our Smart parking guidance solution for them through which cars are guided directly to the free spots to consequently reduce the vehicles driving around and therefore improve mobility and the citizen life quality.

The project began with a pilot covering 10 parking spaces. After verifying the right functioning of the system as well as its good results during this period, we are about to implement the second phase which will embrace 1000 sensorized parking spots.

Urbiotica announces the next launch of its U-Spot M2M parking sensor with NB-IoT communication

 

After several months working on the development of the U-Spot M2M, Urbiotica enters the final validation phase with the installation of the first prototypes in Barcelona.

 

The U-Spot M2M will be based on the new telecom industry-driven NB-IoT standard and will enable direct sensor-to-cloud communication without the need to install dedicated gateways.  Consequently, the installation and subsequent operation of projects will be greatly simplified and the total cost for the Client will be reduced.

 

The U-Spot M2M will expand Urbiotica’s range of parking products to address a broad segment of customers who need to manage reserved parking spaces such as PRM or Loading zones, which is one of the cities’ biggest headaches. These kinds of places are scattered, among others, complicating the installations from an economic and operational point of view by having to implement solutions with dedicated gateways.

 

“This is a very important step for us” explains Josep Mª Torras, CEO of the company, “We have actively analyzed the LPWAN technologies that have appeared in recent years, but until the arrival of the NB-IoT we have not obtained good enough results to be able to provide a M2M product to our customers with the same reliability and robustness that we provide with our Gateway solution.  We are convinced that the U-Spot M2M will open the door to new markets as it is an installable device in any country that has deployed NB-IoT or LTE-M network.”

 

According to Marc Boher, Urbiotica’s CCO, “Customers today expect much more than a reliable vehicle detection solution, they need a comprehensive solution that meets their management needs. In the last 2 years we have been focused on the development of a global guidance solution for urban environments that has allowed us to be positioned as leaders in this market segment.” As a complement to the new sensor U-Spot M2M, Urbiotica is working on a complete solution for the management of PRM and Loading parking spaces based on the experience acquired in the execution of these kind of projects.

 

The next steps towards a 100% market-ready M2M solution is to complete the validation phase and depends on the commercial launch of NB-IoT services by mobile operators. “Urbiotica is really satisfied with the first results and expects to be able to supply the first commercial units by the end of the year. The team works very actively with operators from several countries to make it happen very soon” concludes Josep Mª Torras.

The U-Sound noise sensor has been approved by Sentilo and the city of Barcelona

The Department for Noise Pollution Reduction of Barcelona City Hall has recently successfully tested the Urbiotica U-Sound noise sensor over the requirements for noise sensors to be installed in the city.

The Urbiotica U-Sound is an autonomous and wireless acoustic sensor designed to measure noise in the city. It makes continuous measurements and every minute, it sends a new equivalent continuous sound level value through the communication network. From the data captured by the sensor, it is possible to generate other indicators and alerts for exceeding the previously defined noise levels. The quality of the sensor’s measurement is equivalent to a Class II sound level meter.

Being Sentilo-compatible means it is virtually “plug and play” with the Sentilo data platform.

Urbiotica improves mobility in the centre of Istanbul

Istanbul is the most populous city in Europe (around 17M inhabitants), which puts without doubts mobility as a central issue of the megalopolis. The constant growth of the population goes together with an increase of private vehicles and traffic congestions, which implies a necessary regulation of parking within the central districts of the city.

This is why Urbiotica is currently implementing its smart parking sensing system to gather real time information about parking use in order to manage in a more efficient way parking in the most transited areas of the urbanization.

Urbiotica’ solution for regulated parking consists in obtaining accurate information about the use and presence of vehicles in each parking spot of the city to carry out an efficient control of the respect of the rules established by the municipality. On the other hand, the information of parking occupation can be aggregated per zone in order to share availability with the citizens to help them find parking faster.

Urbiotica’ solution, carried by ERBEN, our partner in Turkey, has been chosen by IsPark, Istanbul’ parking operator, after an initial phase of trials of the various technologies available on the market. Its reliability, accuracy and flexibility in deployment has convinced the local authority to go on with a 2nd operational phase, through the installation of 100 parking sensors U-Spot in the Fevzipaşa Caddesi area, where an important part of the city traffic is concentrated due to its commercial and central aspects.
