Parking Gets Smart - Improved & digitalised parking management as tool to foster green and multimodal transport in the South Baltic area

Project description

Parking Gets Smart project starts from an analysis : in urban centres without proper parking strategies, 30% of traffic jam is actually drivers looking for a parking spot. From there, Parking Gets Smart offers, by increasing and improving parking digitalisation, to integrate parking spots in multimodal journey planner and support a shift to sustainable transport (public transport, bikes).

Project develops and disseminates innovative parking management solutions that make the most of digitalisation and advanced ICT.
For achieving this, the project gathers a “pioneer developer community” that creates new approaches & disseminates them to other parking actors in the SBA. It delivers:

  • A set of innovative, site-oriented model strategies for digital parking management. They define tailored “push” (e.g. parking fees) & digital “pull” (e.g. dynamic parking guidance apps) mechanisms for typical use cases in the SBA (e.g. university campus, seaside resort).
  • Tools & models to establish the base infrastructure for digital processing & sharing of “open parking data”, incl. a generic, non-proprietary model hub that is developed as “open source software”.
  • Model applications that demonstrate & validate benefits. They put ICT-based end-user devices into everyday use (e.g. dynamic parking guidance or lot sharing apps). Effects on mobility behaviour are documented & evaluated. The tools are partly developed as “open source” software, too.
  • The further extension of the user group & use range of digital parking management in the SBA. The “open source” software solutions are provided to followers free-of-charge. A “SBA help desk” & trainings in all SBA countries assist them in launching own activities. Hackathons encourage software developers to create new parking apps.

Upon its finalization, PARKING GETS SMART will have made a significant & concrete contribution to changing mobility behaviour and the wider roll-out of site-oriented digital parking management across the SBA.
