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).
