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.

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”.

When parking and driving in tourist cities is a nightmare

Holidays are the most eagerly awaited days of the year, which is why it is important everything goes to plan. Arriving in a city and not finding somewhere to park and spending hours in the car looking for parking can spoil those longed-for days off. At the same time, residents of these cities suffer the consequences of the arrival of huge waves of tourists as they can cause more problems than benefits in some cases.

One of the first priorities of the inhabitants of a territory is freedom of movement and the need to travel, which constitutes a fundamental right of the citizen. This requirement is difficult to meet in densely populated areas as is the case in cities in general, particularly those with variations in their usual traffic volumes in a short period of time such as tourist areas.

This situation usually leads to problems such as a decline in retail sales, environmental pollution of the city generated by carbon dioxide emissions and noise pollution caused by cars. Such a context therefore becomes a nuisance for residents and traders, while also creating a poor image for visitors.

Technology for Smart Cities and the action plans implemented by city councils help alleviate these situations. Isolated cases in coastal or mountainous region municipalities or even World Heritage Sites show how it is possible to reverse this trend and once again enjoy these cities.

Tourism and heritage in the 21st century

While medieval cities were built to be inaccessible, the 21st century requires cities that are viable for traffic and the pedestrian mobility of their inhabitants and tourists. Many of the ancient cities in Spain urgently require transformation, for example Toledo, Alcalá de Henares, Salamanca, Ibiza, Tarragona, Santiago de Compostela, Segovia and Cáceres, to name but a few.

Tourist cities such as Ibiza, Alcalá de Henares y Toledo are also World Heritage Sites. In these cases The White Paper on Mobility in Heritage Cities has set a precedent on different ways of taking action to solve the problems that arise today.

The document states that the most common solution taken to make these types of roads accessible has been the building of a single platform and in many cases pedestrianisation. However, there are also other solutions applicable to these types of problems, particularly those related to vehicle traffic.

Alcalá de Henares, the responsibility of being a World Heritage Site


With 206,000 residents and an additional daily floating population of around 50,000, Alcalá de Henares is a municipality located in the eastern part of the Autonomous Region of Madrid. It is strategically located in terms of communications, since it receives all the traffic flow from the N-II road and is crossed by the Madrid-Barcelona rail line.

In an automobile census in the municipality in April 2014, 84% of vehicles there belonged to the tourism sector. Given these numbers, the city council started to implement several measures to solve problems caused by the huge influx of tourists and the need to ensure both the well-being of citizens and visitors.

One of the actions included the programme to promote bicycle use in the city and the creation of a series of parking areas to facilitate pedestrian transit, helping to improve environmental sustainability and increase mobility in the city centre.

Ibiza receives two million tourists a year


Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean forming the archipelago and autonomous region of the Balearic Islands, in Spain. It has an area of ​​572 km² and a population of 140,964 inhabitants (according to the 2015 population census), and receives roughly 2,000,000 tourists a year attracted by the beauty of its landscapes and its world-famous entertainment and night-life options.

Being such a popular tourist destination started to generate various problems on the island. This seasonal influx complicated access to the centre and caused congestion of vehicles looking for parking in the Marina. This situation affected the well-being of the population and had a negative impact on trade and the image of the area. As a result, the local government decided to place sensors on the parking spaces of the Marina and install a panel to inform drivers of parking space availability, therefore avoiding unnecessary vehicle access in case all the spaces were occupied. This smart parking technology is part of Urbiotica’s solutions and enables optimised management of parking areas and quicker access into the city centre.

Cities today have great disagreements concerning the use of the limited soil availability. Some cities prefer to dedicate more space to new parking areas, while others, such as Ibiza and some touristic places decided to optimise the management of the existing parking areas to make the most of them and this way reduce vehicles driving around searching for a free spot and hence reduce traffic jams.  Citizens are satisfied because they no longer waste time looking for parking, suffer less stress and have improved quality of life.

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.

Smart parking transforming teeming tourist cities into efficient and enjoyable places to live or visit

Some cities experience massive overcrowding during peak periods as a result of their attractiveness to tourists or for being a haven for holidaymakers.

The access to beaches, shopping and leisure areas gets blocked by cars trying to reach their destination or motorists driving around looking for a free parking spot. It creates stress and unease amongst the residents and tourists who therefore spend too much time getting around the city. The local trade notice their sales and foot traffic decreaseCO2 emissions and noise contamination caused by vehicle traffic harms residents’ health. It’s really irritating and annoying for residents and shop-owners and creates a bad image for visitors.

One of the biggest challenges of today’s Public Administration and Urban Service Management is to reduce the congestion caused by looking for parking on public roads improving the traffic flow in the city and, therefore, the environmental quality and well-being of residents. Ibiza and l’Escala are two good examples of places which were facing massive seasonal overcrowding and decided to take control of the situation by implementing smart parking solutions to become more efficient and livable places.
