The city of Opole, located in southern Poland, has almost 130,000 inhabitants and was encountering the problems faced by all large cities, the lack of available parking spots, which affected the amount of time needed for its citizens to find parking. Opole was dealing with serious vehicle congestion on a daily basis, and the city decided to take measures to solve it and become a Smart City.
The Opole project entailed installing 3,162 U-Spot DUO sensors to improve mobility.
The deployment of these U-Spot DUO sensors is part of the ITS Opole (Intelligent Transportation System) project, with which the city is aiming to improve habits and become more sustainable.
The parking module seeks to help drivers find a parking spot by showing the free spots at all times.
