The German Company Glatt optimizes it parking system with Urbiotica’s solution

The challenge: optimize the search for parking for workers providing the company an innovative company image.

Urbiotica’s solution arrives to Binzen, Germany. The Group Glatt– world leader in innovative solutions for the food and pharmaceutical industry – has an area of 10,000 km2 and more than 200 jobs, that’s why the company has decided to improve it services for employees and visitors.

Harald Schmitt CEO of MSR-Traffic GmbH says about the Glatt Group: “The owner built a fantastic new building for its employees and they also wanted to have the most modern technologies which can be installed in the direction of the car park”. It is in this sense that Urbiotica solution has been launched on this new project.

In order to optimize the search for parking in the parking lot the company installed a simple system of intelligent detection with 240 U-Spot sensors. The collected information is transmitted to the modern LED screens showing the number of free seats per row.

Due to monitoring spot to spot, employees and visitors are directed with digital signs to the nearest available parking place saving time and improving the everyday experience.

Free but regulated parking, the solution to the center of Vic-en-Bigorre

Urbiotica’s parking sensors have been installed to regulate the use of parking spots and increases their rotation. Due to our technology, the enforcement agent no longer has to monitor parking spot by spot.

This small French town with a surface area of 32km² and a population of about 5,500 inhabitants, suffered from traffic congestion due to the deficiency of parking spaces in the city center. The lack of parking near the shopping areas coupled with a significant number of cars occupying the spots for long periods of time, generated discomfort for local merchants and upset citizens.

The local administration decided to limit the parking in the city center to two hours per parking spot. If a car exceeds this time limit the vehicle owner will receive a fine. To successfully implement the system of free and shared parking, it is necessary to regulate the use of parking space. In order to do this, 114 U-Spot sensors were installed in parking spaces. These were accompanied by a complete parking management system and a mobile application to alert the guard of breaches in real time and to guide them to these vehicles.

The project was executed by Axione (Bouygues Energie Services subsidiary) in collaboration with Mentis and Urbiotica. The deployment was fast and easy with minimum civil works; thus, great savings were achieved regarding other smart solutions.

In an interview with France 3 Midi Pyrenees, Mayor Clément Menet explained that the objective of the project was implemented to avoid having vehicles park in the same parking space for the entire day. He exclaims, “It was a real problem: I could not park in the city center of Vic”.

The mayor and citizens of Vic-en-Bigorre have been interviewed by the French television channel France 3 Midi Pyrenees. You can view testimonials and more information about Urbiotica’s system here:

Regulated parking and the challenge of controlling the correct use of it

Every day we face the problem of finding convenient parking spots central to our end destination. The increasing population density and number of vehicles in big cities makes it increasingly difficult to find free sites as well as generates constant traffic jams. These issues lead to an increase in air pollution throughout the cities and consequently a rise in discomfort among citizens. Although specific regulated parking places have been created for disabilities, residents, and load/unload, these regulations are not always followed and respected by inhabitants.

Even though municipalities have created regulated parking areas, the problem requires new solutions. Fortunately, new technologies have been created to address these issues. The internet of things applied to cities now makes it possible to control who parked in each spot, and whether or not they meet the stipulated times and areas, ultimately saving the citizens time and the cities money.

The proposals of Municipalities: Are they effective?

Municipalities have made public parking issues an important part of the mobility policy in cities. Some of the actions that are usually developed for urban centers include: defining authorized areas and maximum parking time in each sector, reserving places for the disabled, loading and unloading areas, adjusting the service prices, and encouraging more public transport usage.

In recent decades, governments have implemented various measures to alleviate the problem of traffic, lack of parking places, and pollution. Here are some examples:

  • In Athens, car traffic was restricted to a central area in 1982;
  • Stockholm was also one of the first cities to establish a limited traffic zone in 1996;
  • Since 2008, Germany has required drivers to have an environmental license plate to acquire access to green areas in the cities;
  • Italy has restricted access to ancient centers of major cities during business hours.

These solutions were combined with parking control mechanisms to not only achieve a reduction in the flow of vehicles in the busiest areas of cities, but also to assure that the vehicles entering are able to park.

  

New problems, new solutions

Despite these advances, new problems have emerged: if parking areas are to be used correctly, effective communication is imperative. The user should know where to park, how long they can stay, where and how to pay. Additionally, there is the issue concerning the way in which the council can know and control if the parking places are being used appropriately.

In many instances, a driver will park on a site reserved for the disabled and will not realize it, or a tourist will park there because they are not aware of the rules of parking areas reserved for residents. Fraud is another major drawback for municipalities. Cases in which users can break the rules and not pay for the parking time are very difficult to control by a traffic officer or other precarious systems, opening the door to  fraudulent mindsets.

The internet of things applied to smart cities generate possible solutions to alleviate these problems. The sensors that detect in real time the occupancy of parking spaces and then translate that data into information for citizens and the administration to utilize is a prime example of this system. This information is then integrated with the customer’s payment information, policy, and specific uses, making it possible to recognize when the stipulated rules are being followed and when they are violated. Cities like Santa Barbara D’Oeste in Brazil or Nice already use this technology. As a result, these cities have managed to optimize their management which in turn caused an increase in the correct use of the regulated parking and mobility throughout each city. Other cases like Madrid or London apply different measures with the same objective: to improve the quality of life of citizens. Let’s see how they have done this.

The challenge of Madrid: pollution control

London: cameras that recognize cars license plates

Noise pollution and its impact on cities today

The importance of its control and management. The real case of Girona. 

The increase in population and frenetic activity of our cities is causing a proportional increase in the noise generated by vehicle traffic, followed by industrial, business and night-life activity.


While it is true that the threshold of noise tolerance varies according to the situation, individual and culture, a survey conducted by the Environmental Agency of the CAM in France showed that people exposed to noise levels of more than 85 dBA suffered a 12% increase in cardiovascular problems, 37% in neurological problems and 10% in digestive problems, in contrast to people exposed to lower levels.

Noise can also affect individuals differently depending on its factors. Depending on the type, duration, place and even the moment when it is produced, it can annoy, irritate and cause convenience, even in some cases altering a person’s physical and psychological state.

Temporary, irreversible or progressive hearing loss is one of the physical effects described and related to noise pollution, as well as blood pressure and heart rate disorders, muscle tension and digestive disorders, among other problems.

Noise can also have psychological consequences for individuals, affecting the stress, mental concentration, learning and productivity of people.

Although the ultimate objective of any city is to improve the life quality of citizens, economic effects are also considered, particularly bearing in mind the budgetary constraints that all administrations are facing currently. Economic costs are clearly reflected in the prices of homes in areas that suffer noise pollution and also evident in the amount of sick leave days and resources allocated to public health resulting from the physical and psychological effects of noise pollution.

 

Noise monitoring in the city of Girona 

Results and conclusions

Thanks to constant technological innovation, the necessary autonomous systems exist today for the continuous real-time monitoring of noise in cities. These systems enable the implementation of new, more efficient, economically viable management models, and therefore improve the quality of life of citizens, which is the priority of any urban action:

  • Transparency with citizens, local awareness and respect.
  • Reduce number of complaints and, therefore, the administrative work associated with it.
  • Reduction in physical and psychological effects to boost citizen well-being and satisfaction.
  • Reduce the economic effects caused by sick leave days and public health costs resulting from noise pollution.

 

Testimonial

“The cost of wireless sensors is less than other methods. In our case, the most interesting thing about the monitoring network is having data continuously, both day and night, rather than the accuracy itself. It has allowed us to highlight the importance of the noise vector and view levels continuously at night. The sensor network now allows us to control changes in noise (peak traffic times and activity in the city) and check what is happening regarding citizen complaints. The public viewer is a way of facilitating access to environmental information to Girona’s citizens and promoting transparency.”

Urbiotica launches a solution for urban noise control with its new U-Sound sensor

Urbiotica launches its new U-Sound device, the autonomous wireless noise sensor designed to measure noise in the city. After 2 years of R&D, several months of testing and the project already successfully implemented and running, the company continues to expand its range of latest generation technology solutions for more efficient and sustainable management of smart cities.

Noise pollution has become one of the main environmental problems in today’s increasingly built-up cities. Noise caused by night-life areas, traffic, building work and roadworks is affecting the health and well-being of citizens causing stress and dissatisfaction among citizens and increasing public health costs.

Urbiotica’s proposal is to implement a noise monitoring network for the continuous monitoring in real time of city trouble spots and the use of alerts when the established limits are exceeded. The new solution allows:

  • Noise monitoring 24h a day, 7 days a week completely autonomously and with the quality of a class II sound level meter. It enables the creation of a permanent monitoring network for controlling a city’s trouble spots and configuring alerts for cases where the established noise levels are exceeded, in order to reduce nuisances and citizen complaints.
  • Remote access to data: The information sent by the sensor and the resulting indicators are stored on the Urbiotica platform, which means the data is accessible in real time and measurements can be consulted remotely.The information generated by the system is accessible to both the manager and citizens through the web tool VisorAcustic. This helps to keep citizens involved and informed, and promote transparency too.
  • Design, robustness and durability: U-Sound was designed to integrate with the aesthetics of the environment, to guarantee the robustness of the hardware and communications, and to therefore have a 10 year useful life.

Urbiotica’s noise monitoring system has already been introduced in the city of Girona. The project deployed jointly with the city council involved the setting up of five sensing points with traffic and night-life related noise problems. Through VisorAcustic inhabitants can access information in real time on noise in the city and those responsible for managing noise pollution receive notifications when noise limits are exceeded for immediate action, particularly necessary in night-life areas.

Urbiotica manages the guidance of Audi’s 5,000 parking spaces in Ingolstadt with 22 sensors

The Audi factory located in Ingolstadt -Germany- has a parking lot with a capacity of more than 5,000 spaces. With so many parking spaces, a system needed to be implemented that would optimise the use of the spaces and reduce the vehicle flow caused by cars looking for free spaces, so that workers would not waste any time looking for parking and could go to work more relaxed and satisfied.

Urbiotica’s proposal is based on the installation of 22 wireless parking capacity sensors to detect vehicles entering and leaving each sector, in order to communicate the number of free spaces. Being an area with delimited entrances and exits, the guidance project could be deployed with only 22 sensors to monitor the 5,000 spaces.

Parking in Audi is now far smoother and quicker. Thanks to the improvements introduced, congestion has disappeared and vehicle flow in the parking area is now more efficient. This was how the CEO of MSR-Traffic Harald Schmitt, our partner in Germany, explained it. “Urbiotica’s solution is also a very good system in terms of cost effectiveness”, said Schmitt, and added, “Audi and LGI are delighted to have a dynamic parking guidance system which they are thinking about extending”.

Urbiotica presents its new solution for noise control at the first AcustiCat Congress

AcustiCat, the first Catalan Congress for reducing noise pollution in the urban environment, will be held on 28 and 29 April. The event, which will be held at the Fira de Sabadell, will be attended by 70 speakers, 25 actively related entities and 200 sponsors. The congress will feature various parallel discussion and reflection activities related to the challenges and dilemmas of noise problems, and will include round tables, solutions and workshops on specific problems (technological, intangible and social). On Thursday 28 at 11.30 h, Urbiotica will provide a demonstration of the operation of the sensing system already successfully implemented in cities such as Girona.

Noise pollution has become one of the main environmental problems in today’s increasingly built-up cities. Noise caused by night-life areas, traffic, building work and roadworks is affecting the health and well-being of citizens causing stress and dissatisfaction among citizens and increasing public health costs. Governments need to continuously monitor noise pollution to raise public awareness and design and implement action plans that mitigate this problem.

Urbiotica’s proposal is to implement a noise monitoring network for the continuous monitoring in real time of city trouble spots and the use of alerts when the established limits are exceeded. This results in less nuisance and fewer citizen complaints, while also improving action plans defined for reducing noise levels.

Urbiotica’s noise monitoring system has already been introduced in the city of Girona. The project deployed jointly with the city council involved the setting up of five sensing points with traffic and night-life related noise problems. Through VisorAcustic inhabitants can access information in real time on noise in the city and those responsible for managing noise pollution receive notifications when noise limits are exceeded for immediate action, particularly necessary in night-life areas.

Our sensing system for continuous noise monitoring will be presented with a Demo at the AcustiCat Congress next Thursday 28 at 11.30h in the Fira de Sabadell.

The new Urbiotica White Paper reveals myths and truths about Smart Parking technologies

Urbiotica presents its new White Paper to offer a better perspective on the myths and truths of existing technologies aimed at improving the management and optimisation of parking areas. This document outlines the experience accumulated by the company over the past eight years, during which more than 10,000 sensors have been deployed and almost 3 million daily detections generated, sensors which are still operational in customer projects in almost twenty countries on three continents.

The emergence of technologies related to the Internet of Things has aroused great expectations for those who manage car parks. However, because the projects deployed have not always achieved their goals, some users remain doubtful about the reliability of the solutions applied. This has led to a debate on the maturity of these technologies.

The White Paper reviews current technologies for detecting vehicles and summarises the advantages and disadvantages of each of them. Urbiotica details in this document the company’s experience in implementing smart parking solutions, the technical and operational know-how developed, the difficulties we have faced and the major successes obtained and future opportunities to be offered by technological developments and market evolution.

The new White Paper describes how, from an original and patented idea, Urbiotica has built its success story.

We will present this document and other Urbiotica novelties at the upcoming Intertraffic event to be held in Amsterdam from 5 to 8 April. Intertraffic: EL.305 ELICIUM Hall.

Sète deploys Urbiotica’s sensors to improve mobility in the town

The project which was implemented in the town involved the deployment of traffic sensors at conflictive strategic points, as well as parking sensors to optimise the use of parking spaces in order to improve mobility around the town.

“When we talk about Sète, two things spring to mind: we cannot drive around easily or park”, bemoaned the deputy mayor of the town Sébastien Pacull in an interview with the French newspaper Midi Libre.

The French town of the canals is known for its curious location and geographical distribution, and its communication at various points by bridges that cross its canals. The bridges serve as the main access routes into the town and normally cause frequent traffic congestion. To change this image of the town, the mayor says they have launched an ambitious action plan to optimise and rationalise the space dedicated to vehicles, pedestrians and their flows.

The French newspaper Midi Libre stresses what is important about project is to know precisely the number of available parking spaces and to report on the traffic conditions on the bridges.

The parking systemalready works in certain regulated areas where today you can cross-reference the sensor data with the use times of the parking spaces in order to optimise and manage parking areas more efficiently. “The parking areas beneath the Canal are underused. On Saturday afternoons occupancy is only around 35% which is mainly due to the lack of information”, commented Sébastien Pacull.

Sensors have also been installed on the busiest streets to know vehicle flow and measure traffic intensity. Other sensors installed on bridges identify whether they are open or closed to vehicles.

Soon, and based on information currently provided by the sensors, a mobile application will enable drivers in Sète to know in real time the latest traffic news and parking availability in the town, as well as the traffic conditions on the bridges.

The project implemented by Citelum in collaboration with Mentis and Urbiotica was deployed quickly, efficiently and with hardly any public works necessary, resulting in major savings compared to other smart solutions.
