Urbiotica acquires Fastprk from Worldsensing

One of the leading smart parking solutions is changing owners.

BARCELONA, June 4th, 2020 – Smart city and IoT specialist Urbiotica has acquired Fastprk, one of the leading parking management solutions by Worldsensing. Both Barcelona-based companies were founded in 2008 and develop and offer vertical Internet of Things solutions for both the public and private sector.

Urbiotica and Worldsensing announced today that the smart city expert Urbiotica has acquired the smart parking solution range, Fastprk. While the product family was commercially launched in 2012, Fastprk is now widely deployed worldwide and has been ranked among top parking offerings by the leading market analyst IDC. The IoT-based parking management system allows detecting if vehicles occupy outdoor parking spaces by using a dual detection sensor that sends parking data to the cloud through an IoT radio protocol called LoRa.

Urbiotica has recently been focusing on extending its smart parking product and solution portfolio. Having been frequently categorized as a player with high potential by market analysts, the Fastprk acquisition will strengthen Urbiotica’s market-leading position. Overall, acquiring Fastprk mirrors the market consolidation trend the smart parking industry is undergoing. The acquisition was especially motivated by the complementarity the Fastprk technology brings to Urbiotica in terms of customer base and market penetration, which will allow Urbiotica to increase both sales and project opportunities. The Fastprk DUO sensor will allow Urbiotica to open new markets thanks to its double detection technology and LoRa communication protocol.

For Josep Maria Torras, CEO of Urbiotica, “the acquisition of a prestigious brand like Fastprk enables us to accelerate the growth of our company and ensures mid-term profitability thanks to the critical mass Fastprk adds to our offering. Moreover, it provides us with direct access to new customer segments within the USA and Poland where Fastprk already has a strong footprint.”

Letting go of its parking management product line enables Worldsensing to focus on its market-leading infrastructure monitoring technology, Loadsensing.

Ignasi Vilajosana, CEO of Worldsensing, explains that “as a company, we see that it is more and more necessary to concentrate on Loadsensing, which represents our core business. Fastprk was the first brand we successfully launched and established in the market for which we frequently received buying offers over the years. The decision to pass the torch on to Urbiotica is driven by the company’s capacity to continue providing outstanding service to our customers. Besides having known each other for a long time and trusting each other, I also want to highlight that we chose Urbiotica because they are smart parking pros, and because we know that they will continue making Fastprk better and will keep our purpose to continuously innovate alive.”

With over 50.000 parking sensors deployed in 200 parking projects across 45 countries, Urbiotica is destined to quickly become the leader in the smart parking space.

Urbiotica prepares for Municipalia 2019

 

We’re getting closer and closer to the 20th edition of Municipalia, which opens its doors from 22nd to 24th October 2019 at Fira de Lleida. Urbiotica will be there once again to present the latest technological innovations developed to improve mobility and noise pollution in cities.

The 2019 edition of Municipalia will include exhibitions of innovative companies in the sector, in addition to a wide variety of technical conferences, which will offer municipalities new features and solutions to optimize municipal management as well as pioneering and sustainable proposals for the progress of cities and the return on investment.

This year we will be presenting our latest developments for smart parking and noise monitoring.

Our experts will be showing how the Urbiotica’s innovations for smart parking are improving the way we manage and control parking spaces reserved for PRM and loading and unloading, making these processes more efficient, simple and smart.

On the other hand, we will tell you how the solution for the management of noise pollution carries out continuous and autonomous measurement of noise levels, allowing the monitoring and control of areas with high noise levels produced by nightlife, traffic, works and outdoor activities.

Municipalia is the leading trade fair in Spain in areas of urban equipment and services, environment and waste management as well as solutions for administrations. It is the meeting point for those responsible for public administrations, municipal technicians and companies looking for solutions and new tools to improve the management of their municipalities and cities, public space and citizens’ wellbeing.

We will be waiting for you in Pavilion 1 to tell you all the news. Come and see us!

In addition, on Thursday 24 from 12:00 to 13:00h in the south hall of pavilion 4, you will be able to attend a presentation by our Commercial Director, Marc Boher, on the “Use and benefits of the Internet of Things for small and medium-sized municipalities in the area of parking, traffic and noise monitoring”.

Come visit us at EPA Congress’19 and get to know our solutions for guidance and control of the urban parking

 

Urbiotica will be present at the next edition of EPA Congress and Exhibition to be held from 18 to 20 September this year at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Málaga.

 

EPA is the most important international parking and mobility event in Europe. In its 19th edition, using “Key solutions for urban mobility” as its slogan, it will cover all the current issues of interest in this sector as well as the threats and opportunities of the future. It will examine the general situation of parking and urban mobility in Europe, allowing broader urban mobility issues to be addressed along with detailed parking issues. Parking is not a huge problem, but a huge opportunity.

 

During our exhibition at EPA we will present the new developments we  implemented in our smart parking solutions. We will show you how these new developments are already improving urban mobility today by easing the search for free spaces to park for users and control operations for operators, both in regulated parking areas as for dispersed spaces reserved for special uses.

 

We will tell you all about it in Stand nº 31 where you will be able to meet our experts and also be able to see how our technology works through demonstrations.

Urbiotica at Smart City Expo World Congress 2018

Urbiotica at Smart City Expo World Congress 2018

Urbiotica will be present at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2018 in Barcelona from 13th to 15th of November, and once again join the theme “creating together cities to live in”. We will be presenting the latest news and projects about parking management and noise monitoring solutions.

We are pleased to be able to tell you the details of our latest installations on 3 continents and in diverse and demanding weather conditions that demonstrate day after day the reliability of our system and keep us as leaders and benchmarks in the sector:

-Installation of counting sensors at the entrances and exits of the park & ride areas of several cities in Belgium to monitor and inform users in real time of the availability of free parking spaces and thus reduce traffic while improving user satisfaction.

-Deployment of parking guidance solutions, which guide vehicles to the available free spaces, as is the case in the City of Rosario (Argentina) in a project of 1,000 parking spaces or in tourist cities in Spain such as Calvià (Mallorca). It significantly reduces the number of vehicles circulating in search of parking and improves mobility in the area as well as the satisfaction of its citizens. Implantations by means of counting sensors or  spot to spot sensors or even the combination of both as in Burlington (Canada), carried out without the need to remove the parked vehicles or interruptions in the service to the citizens.

-Control of loading and unloading areas. Teruel (Spain) is one of the projects to highlight where today the local police is informed in real time of the use and thus improves efficiency in the management of the area.

-Solutions to obtain real measures of noise levels, 24 hours a day, all week. An example is the Alicante project implemented with the aim of resolving conflicts, assessing compliance of the defined noise levels, evaluating the efficiency of the actions implemented and transparency with the citizens.

We have made our contribution to “creating together cities to live in”. Shall we tell you about it?
