Smart parking – key projects for smart cities, a report by Beecham Research

Posted by IoT Now MagazineJuly 24, 2015
Introduction The initial momentum on smart cities was focused around solving the specific problems of cities, problems that have been critical for a long time. We could call that an application-centric approach to smart cities. This was the case for urban mobility, particularly car mobility. Smart parking solutions were soon identified as important projects for improving parking options in cities, particularly in city centres.

Currently, the application-centric approach to smart cities is coexisting with a holistic one. In the latter, the city is seen as a system of systems. A smart city platform provides the intelligent backbone to the city on which each system can then be addressed through applications such as smart parking. Simultaneous to this report, Beecham Research is also publishing a study on the nature of smart city platforms – seen as a category of IoT platforms – and their role in current smart city projects.

To complement this, this report focuses on current trends in smart parking solutions. The reason for that is that in current smart city projects, whatever the project approach is, smart parking remains a key application.
