Smart Parking Secures Hobart City Council Contract

Hobart City

Over the last 12 months Hobart City Council has begun to formulate and introduce state-of-the-art Smart City solutions. In partnership with Australian Parking and Revenue Control (APARC), Smart Parking is pleased to announce it has secured the contract to implement its vehicle detection sensor solution in Tasmania’s capital city.

The city’s complete smart parking solution comprises of Parkeon 7” colour screen parking meters, integrated enforcement, sensors, a mobile phone parking app, and real-time credit card processing in what is Australia’s first fully integrated smart city parking solution.

2,100 in-ground vehicle detection sensors will be used to collect and transmit real-time data to Hobart City Council via Smart Parking’s back-office management reporting software and parking availability smartphone application giving residents live data on available parking spaces.

Parkeon colour screen meters offer a splash-screen so the Council can report whats going in downtown Hobart, advertise, and even display missing person notices or law enforcement messages. Hobart’s meters will be the first meters in the country to accept payment by ApplePay.

Smart Parking CEO Paul Gillespie: “We are proud to announce the new contract with Hobart City Council. The continued uptake of our systems in Australia and beyond further cements our position as a world leader in the design, development and management of parking technology. We are also pleased to be working with APARC, which distributes machines made by Parkeon, a major player in parking management solutions”.

Arthur D. Riley’s enforcement and parking payment applications are also fully integrated with the Parkeon meters and vehicle detection sensors. The new smart city solution aims to reduce traffic congestion, help tourists navigate the city more easily and assist motorists to find and pay for parking.
