Project description Guidance solution for the regulated parking in Gliwice, Polonia
Improve the management of regulated parking spaces to optimize traffic flow.
With around 200,000 inhabitants, an intricate historic center and a growing vehicle fleet, the Polish municipality of Gliwice is faced with the usual challenges of any modern city.
The municipal authorities have to reconcile vehicle and pedestrian traffic in urban areas, which requires a rational management of surface parking spaces ensuring smooth traffic flow, and also vouching for the interests of the city’s inhabitants and traders.
The operator running the city’s regulated parking spaces, City Parking Group, chose the U-Spot DUO solution after having already implemented together a successful project in Lodz,
For this reason, the company once again put its trust in Fastprk technology for its application in Gliwice.
The solution comprises 300 sensors installed in the regulated parking spaces, Dynamic message signs that guide drivers to free spaces and an app that enables them to pay for parking via mobile phone. The management platform collects all the information captured by the sensor system and provides real-time information on the occupation of the city’s parking spaces.
Thanks to the installation of U-Spot DUO, City Parking Group now has a comprehensive intelligent system for monitoring and managing regulated parking in Gliwice. The electrical panels indicate free spaces, reducing the time needed for parking, which de-congests the streets and reduces pollution. Drivers can pay for parking tickets from their mobiles via the free app and even extend their parking time without having to go back to the parking meter to put in more coins. The operator can also adopt dynamic measures to optimise the use of the parking spaces, such as raising or lowering charges in certain city districts or at certain times (for example, when sports events are held or on days of high shopping activity). Finally, Fastprk’s connection with the regulated parking system enables detection of vehicles that have not paid for parking. With this solution, Gliwice has become one of the most advanced cities in the smart management of regulated parking, a cornerstone for the Smart Cities of the future.
