The City Council of Alcalá de Henares, a city located to the northwest of Madrid, is committed to the improvement of the city’s neighborhoods and citizen wellbeing. To this end, the council launched a macro-project to remodel the old football field in the area of Juan de Austria and thus turn it into a quality space for leisure and personal relationship.
Part of the project process involved citizen participation, obtaining more than 200 proposals. Among the most prominent proposals was the improvement of parking spaces due to the fact that Alcalá de Henares is located in a dense urban fabric and faces a global lack of parking spaces. Urbiotica’s technology was selected as a solution to takle this problem.
Urbiotica’s solution meant the deployment of the U-Flow Parking system, to count the vehicles that enter and leave the area in order to determine and communicate the users in real time accurate information related to the occupancy level of the 100 spaces. The information is published through 2 VMS located on nearby streets, allowing drivers to quickly decide where to park in the area, avoiding vehicle chaos and stress to users during the process.
As a result of the whole project, a large park has been achieved, accessible also to people with reduced mobility, surrounded by nice paths for walking, activity areas for all sectors of the population and an area with a greater density of trees. There is also a parking area which, thanks to Urbiotica’s solution, has been satisfactorily optimized to create an efficient and tidy space.
Urbiotica were established in 2008 with a very clear foundational vision: technology based on wireless sensor networks will transform how we manage our cities.
Urbiotica leads the revolution of the Internet of Things applied to Smart Cities. The projects implemented in more than 20 countries position us as the leading technology company in the development of smart solutions based on sensor systems, designed to manage urban space more efficiently and sustainably.
