The installation of 350 U-Spot M2M sensors has begun in San Sebastián to manage parking reserved for people with reduced mobility (PRM). The aim of the project deployed in San Sebastian is to improve respect in the use of parking spots reserved for PRM users and to inform these users of available parking near their location.
Parking spots for PRM are frequently occupied by unauthorized drivers, causing significant inconvenience in the daily lives of these users. With the new solution, the installed sensor will detect the presence of unauthorized vehicles and automatic alerts will be sent to the parking attendants, allowing a real-time and much more efficient control over the status of the bays, being able to intervene directly and immediately.
On the other hand, the data captured by the system will also be used to guide PRM drivers to the available parking spaces. Through the app, they will be aware of the occupancy of the reserved bays at any given moment and, therefore, where to park. As a result, the driver does not have to drive around looking for a parking spot, as they know have the availability information and may drive directly towards it, reducing pollution and improving their parking experience.
The project developed in San Sebastián is a win-win for the public administration as well as for authorized users. More and more cities are seeing digitalization as a clear benefit for the improvement of space and parking management.
