Parking guidance solution - Calvià, Mallorca (Spain)

Calvià is a tourist destination located in southwest Mallorca where the Smart Island Congress has been held since 2017, a global event that welcomes more than 1 million visitors per year.
The project in Calvià involved deploying U-Spot sensors in the parking spots along with message signs.
