Urban parking guidance in Alzira to lower the number of vehicles looking for parking spots and make parking quicker
To lower the number of vehicles looking for parking on the biggest shopping street in the center of Alzira by installing 70 sensors.
Alzira is a city in the throes of growth and change which needed a plan to improve mobility in the central zone. The challenge facing the local City Hall and PAVAPARK (the parking operator) was to improve mobility on the busiest street in the central zone to make it smarter, more efficient, and safer. The project sought to make it easier for drivers to park and thus to lower the number of vehicles circulating and improve mobility in the city center.
The project managed to control traffic on Aavenida Santos Patronos, where there is a regulated parking zone.
The smart parking guidance solution entailed installing 70 U-Spot sensors on the busiest shopping street in the city center, which has a regulated parking zone.
The system installed captures the data and informs users on the availability of free spots in real time via two message signs installed on either end of the avenue.
