Tattile: Highway traffic management in Republic of Srpska 

 

 

Six lane controlled-access highway in Poland.

 

In order to better utilize the capacity of the traffic network, improve the overall performance of the traffic system in all conditions, as well as to raise the level of traffic safety, advanced traffic management systems or Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) are utilized to monitor, control and manage the traffic flow. The ITS system on the highway Banja Luka – Doboj covers the section from the Tovira interchange (Johovac) to the Kostajnica (Rudanka) interchange. It includes, within a single platform, integrated systems for traffic monitoring, management of variable traffic signals, speed control and traffic lanes usage definition, road weather condition measurement and informing traffic participants about them, video surveillance, detection of traffic parameters and a system for oversized vehicle detection. The ITS system is modular and adaptable in terms of functionality and size, enabling it to expand and adapt to future infrastructure requirements.

The integrated automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology is part of the ITS system, which automatically takes pictures of each passing vehicle’s front, angle, or rear. Its processing software automatically detects and reads the vehicle license plates and takes action depending on the recognition results, e.g., transfer of results to the central system for further processing. The cameras used are intelligent Tattile Smart 2HD, a model specifically designed for outdoor installation and reliable performance day and night in all weather conditions. The Tattile Smart 2HD cameras enable vehicle data collection at a maximum vehicle speed of 250 km/h. Cameras are installed on portals and pillars and work 24 hours / 7 days a week. In the next step, the highway operator Autoputevi Republike Srpske plans to further exploit the abilities of the Tattile Smart Cameras by activating system functionalities such as recognition of vehicle brand and color as well as vehicle class. Also, average speed measurement or section speed control is currently planned to be installed using the Tattile camera technology. Such additional information may be particularly useful to a third party, such as, e.g., traffic police, in performing their duties. In addition to further expanding the data generation on the current highway section, the highway operator intends to expand the entire system to more highway sections in the Republic of Srpska.

ParkDSM, Des Moines, Iowa’s, Parking App Powered by ParkMobile, Expands Partnership to Offer Parking Reservations

 

 

Users are now able to reserve parking in advance of events at Iowa Events Center via the ParkDSM app.

 

 

Des Moines, IA – November 15, 2022 – ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., has expanded its partnership with ParkDSM, a parking app for the City of Des Moines, to offer parking reservations throughout the City of Des Moines. Through ParkDSM, reservations can be made for upcoming events at the Iowa Events Center, and more public and private off-street locations will be added soon. Reservations can be made via the ParkDSM app.

“As a result of the success of ParkDSM, we’ve expanded the app’s features to offer parking reservations throughout the city,” says John Davis, City Traffic Engineer from the City of De Moines. “Since launching ParkDSM in April, our residents have adopted the parking app and have been using it regularly. We’re excited to introduce parking reservations now and utilize another one of the great features ParkMobile offers.”

ParkMobile has grown rapidly across Iowa this year, with 180,000 users in the state and over 77,000 users in Des Moines.

Reserving a parking space is quick and easy. A user can go to the “reserve” tab of the ParkDSM app to view a full list of upcoming events with all the available parking options. To make a parking reservation, users search for the event venue in the ParkDSM app and select the space they’d like to park in. After the user books the reservation, it can be redeemed at the location using a mobile pass in the ParkMobile app or a printed permit.

“The ParkDSM app uses the same incredible technology as ParkMobile, so we’re thrilled to see the City of Des Moines add another one of our features to their city-branded parking app,” adds David Hoyt, Chief Revenue Officer and Managing Director, North America for ParkMobile. “We look forward to continuing our expansion across Iowa and the Midwest Region.”

Beam Global Receives $2.9M Order from U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Sustainable EV Charging Infrastructure Products*

 

 

 

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14, 2022  — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has ordered 32 Beam EV ARC™ sustainable off-grid charging systems and 3 ARC Mobility™ trailers for efficient system transport. The systems will be deployed across 8 locations for Customs Border Patrol (CBP), Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). EO 14057 Catalyzing Clean Energy Industries and Jobs Through Federal Sustainabilityprioritizes federal investment in energy resilient infrastructure for EV charging, powered by locally produced and delivered renewable energy for America’s next generation electricity supply. The purchase was made through the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the federal procurement process and ensures best pricing.

The DHS charging systems will be deployed in Georgia, Maryland, New Mexico, South Carolina, and 4 locations in Puerto Rico. The Beam EV ARC™ systems are off-grid and powered by renewable energy, generating and storing their own clean electricity. Each system is deployed with no construction, no electrical work, no utility connection, and is delivered as a turnkey sustainable charging system that is rapidly deployed. Because EV ARC™ systems are flood proof to 9.5 feet and wind rated to 125 mph, and have survived much higher wind speeds in the field, they are particularly well suited to provide disaster preparedness in environments like Puerto Rico. The ARC Mobility™ trailer is a specialized hydraulic transport system designed to efficiently relocate EV ARC™ charging systems.

“Our products are perfect for Executive Order (14057) for a Clean Energy Economy: resilient, clean, sustainable and rapidly deployed EV charging infrastructure solutions,” said Desmond Wheatley, Beam Global CEO. “We continue to see increasing federal GSA orders and pipeline opportunities citing federal initiatives. Our sustainable EV charging solutions create American manufacturing jobs to build American made products that serve zero emission transportation with 100% locally generated renewable and resilient energy.”

The federal fleet is comprised of approximately 657,500 vehicles. President Biden’s Executive Order 14057 with its accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan calls for 100% zero-emission vehicle acquisitions by 2035, including 100% light-duty acquisitions by 2027. This is prioritizing and accelerating a Federal Clean Electricity and Vehicle Procurement Strategy, calling for clean and zero emissions vehicles (ZEVs) for federal, state, local and tribal government fleets, including vehicles of the United States Postal Service.

Beam products can be procured through the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the federal procurement process and ensures best pricing.

*This order was previously announced during Beam Global’s earnings announcement on November 10, 2022

ŠKODA launches new Pay to Park service in Europe in collaboration with Parkopedia

November 10, 2022

 

ŠKODA launches new Pay to Park service in Europe

 

  • ●  The service allows users to pay for parking via the MyŠKODA App or their vehicle’s infotainment system
  • ●  Following a pilot phase in Switzerland, the service is now available in seven European countries, with plans to expand it to eight more European markets
  • ●  Collaboration with international connected car services provider Parkopedia

     

    10 November 2022 – Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic / London, UK

    The new ŠKODA Connect service Pay to Park now makes parking easier in several European countries: ŠKODA customers can use the MyŠKODA App or their car’s infotainment system to display parking options, view the fees and pay conveniently. After a pilot phase in Switzerland, the service is now also available in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway. ŠKODA and Parkopedia are continuing to expand the service, with eight more countries coming soon.

    Martin Jahn, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Sales and Marketing, emphasises: “Thanks to the new ŠKODA Connect feature Pay to Park, our customers can now find available parking spaces across Europe even faster and pay conveniently online using our MySKODA App or the infotainment system.”

    Further expansion planned

    Following a successful pilot phase, ŠKODA AUTO is initially introducing Pay to Park in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway. This will soon expand to a further eight countries – France, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden – before ŠKODA rolls out the service in other European markets in 2023.

    App available in the infotainment and on mobile phone

    Customers can use the service via the MySKODA App on their smartphone or the current Amundsen and Columbus infotainment systems. The in-car app is now available for the FABIA, KAMIQ, SCALA, OCTAVIA, KAROQ, SUPERB and KODIAQ.

    Easy registration

    To use Pay to Park, customers must have an active ŠKODA Connect account and have remote vehicle access enabled. Once the payment data is collected in the MyŠKODA App and the service is activated, it can also be accessed instantly via the infotainment system, and ŠKODA drivers can see which parking spaces they can pay for online. When they reach a parking location, the driver can select the parking time and extend it using the app if necessary. Payment is made online after the parking session has ended.

Cleverciti Bringing Good Parking Luck to Major Irish Shopping Centre

November 06, 2022

 

 

 

Cleverciti Bringing Good Parking Luck to Major Irish Shopping Centre

 

 

 

Cleverciti is excited to bring our innovative parking technology solutions to the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in Dublin, Ireland! Liffey Valley is one of Ireland’s largest shopping destinations, with more than 80 stores, 20 restaurants, and a state-of-the-art movie theater.

Cleverciti worked with Liffey Valley owner and global real estate investment firm Hines to implement our innovative solutions across the development’s nearly 3,000 parking spaces across four parking lots. This initiative transforms the way parking is utilized within the development, creating a more efficient, sustainable, and pleasant parking operation.

Hines’ goal is to provide the best experiences possible from arrival to departure for its thousands of annual visitors. Parking plays a vital role in every visit to a destination, and can ultimately determine whether or not someone chooses to return. Further, providing real-time parking availability information helps to reduce the amount of time people spend looking for parking, allowing them to be on their way to their destination, while reducing carbon emissions associated with circling and vehicle idling. This initiative complements the centre’s existing Park Easy parking management system, providing convenient touchless parking options for visitors.

For this project, Cleverciti integrated our cutting edge, pole-mounted Cleverciti Sensors. The sensors monitor the parking occupancy throughout the parking areas, complemented by ClevercitiTotem LED signage. Visitors can arrive at the parking lot and be greeted by dynamic signage providing the number and location of available parking spaces in real-time.

Each Cleverciti Sensor can monitor up to 100 parking spaces, and easily be installed on existing infrastructure including lampposts, buildings, or masts. With a range of up to 220 degrees, the sensors can measure the exact GPS position of each available parking space and relay that information to the LED signage.

In addition to the sensors and signage, Cleverciti is providing our Cleverciti Cockpit parking management system and dashboard. This solution not only provides the property owner and operator with real-time parking occupancy information, but it also provides comprehensive parking data valuable to evaluate patterns, optimize the parking operation, implement dynamic pricing to maximize revenues, and identify and correct any issues. The Cockpit also provides stakeholders with analytical insights, full reporting features, heatmaps, and a live view dashboard.

Cleverciti: Welcome to Miami!

November 06, 2022

 

Cleverciti: Welcome to Miami!

 

 

 

 


Cleverciti is thrilled to announce our new partnership with the Miami Parking Authority (MPA). Cleverciti will work with the MPA to enable them to improve curb management operations, reduce curb abuse, and create a “white glove” parking experience for drivers.

 

Effectively managing the curb in the trendy Midtown neighborhood of Miami has become increasingly difficult in recent years. As traffic has increased, so has congestion and curb abuse from all vehicle types. In response, the Miami Parking Authority (MPA) piloted various technologies to help resolve these issues yet struggled to find a comprehensive platform that simultaneously tackled curb abuse, delivered driver guidance, and integrated payment methods with real-time occupancy data to reveal compliance levels.

Fortunately, as the MPA was shaping a revised strategy they learned of the Cleverciti solution implemented in Redwood City, California that solved similar challenges.  In partnership, the teams collaborated on a scalable solution designed to reduce congestion and curb management issues, while enhancing the driver experience for those parking in Midtown.

The initial phase of the MPA plan will concentrate on the heart of Midtown (Buena Vista Blvd, NE 1st Ave between 36thSt and 32nd St) and will include:

  1. 12 Circ 360 Ultras installed at intersections guiding drivers to available spaces.
  2. 43 sensors to monitor the complete curb providing a fully integrated view of payment compliance, occupancy status, and loading zone activity all from the Cleverciti Cockpit.
  3. The Cockpit will equip the MPA with new levels of analytical insights, full reporting features, heatmaps, a live view dashboard, and automated Clever Enforcement alerts to MPA staff to mitigate curb abuses.
  4. The MPA and Cleverciti will share data between systems using the Curb Data Specification (CDS), a digital tool created by the Open Mobility Foundation that helps cities and companies pilot and scale dynamic curb zones. The CDS provides a mechanism for expressing static and dynamic regulations, measuring activity at the curb, and developing policies that create more accessible, useful curbs.

As the project rolls-out, the MPA will use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure congestion, curb abuse, and payment compliance. Based on project averages across Cleverciti’s global customer base, the MPA anticipates double-digit improvements in each category. Additionally, with access to Cleverciti’s comprehensive parking management platform, the MPA will look to integrate existing technologies to further streamline operations across its portfolio.

Cooperatively, the leadership of the MPA and Cleverciti have committed to finding and sharing answers to elusive curb management questions with the aim of moving the parking, mobility, and transportation industry forward collectively.
