Knowing where to park without looking

Siemens starts pilot project in Berlin to test radar-based parking space detection

An initial pilot project has already been installed on the Bundesallee in Berlin for test and demonstration purposes. Each sensor in the network scans an area of approximately 30 meters from above like a flashlight, covering five to eight cars. The results of the test will be available in 2016, and are expected to demonstrate the viability of the system. The pilot installation is part of the federally funded Renewably mobile project in which Siemens is exploring the potential of sensor-controlled management systems for roadside parking and electric recharging points in cooperation with the Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment in Berlin (SenStadtUm), the VMZ Berlin Betreibergesellschaft mbH, the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM) and the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).

Siemens develops sensor-controlled parking management system

According to the latest Apcoa study, motorists drive an average of 4.5 kilometers before they finally find somewhere to park. That costs time, gasoline and nerves. The new sensor-controlled parking management system from Siemens is helping to optimize the use of urban parking facilities and radically reduce the congestion caused by motorists searching for a space.
