Cardiff set for Europe's first citywide deployment of parking sensors

Home / News | posted on 01 02 2017

Cardiff will see Europe's first citywide deployment of parking occupancy sensor technologies.

The system will allow users to have real-time access to parking availability by installing a combination of 3000 parking bay sensors for on-street and some off-street parking, along with ANPR technology for car parks. The information will be conveyed to users via a Smartphone App and a number of strategically placed VMS in the city. Cllr Ramesh Patel, Cabinet Member for Planning, Transport and Sustainability, said "This technology will ensure that people travelling by private car are able to find their car parking space quickly and easily. This will have a number of benefits, notably helping in our aim to reduce congestion and improve air quality levels in the city centre".
