AppyParking Launches Real-Time Parking Availability in Coventry
AppyParking, The Intelligent Future Parking Winner (British Parking Awards 2016) has just announced another smart city solution that puts Coventry high up on the Smart City pedestal.
In partnership with Coventry City and NWave, AppyParking allows drivers to see parking availability in real time on a free app and website. A total sum of 72 bays including every disabled bay and 36 paid bays have been enabled with the latest low cost, low energy, long life sensors. The trial could be rolled out across Coventry if enough drivers download the free award-winning app and use the real-time parking availability.
Nwave Sparkit sensors are the next generation of low-profile surface mounted sensors that take under a minute to install. The unique benefit of its wireless technology allows thousands of real-time sensors to talk to one base station up to 6km away.
This trial is part of a wider initiative between Coventry City Council and AppyParking to save motorists time, stress and money. The app understands any parking rule and shows every possible type of bay and restriction to any kind of driver. In just a few taps, motorists can see the “Cheapest & Nearest” parking spaces available to them. The app then guides the motorist to the available bay using turn-by-turn navigation
