For the past 3 years, Parker has been leading the sales & marketing teams of Cleverciti as COO. During this time, Cleverciti has scaled significantly, particularly in the US and Germany, adding flagship clients including Redwood City (in the heart of Silicon Valley) and El Monte (a suburb of Los Angeles) in the US, and Cologne, Düsseldorf, Paderborn, and Gelsenkirchen in Germany.

“When I joined Cleverciti three years ago, I knew this company was positioned to lead the industry in the adoption of smart parking and intelligent parking guidance,” said Parker. “We have now proven we can halve parking search time while growing parking revenues and delivering an extraordinary citizen experience. Our customers can achieve a financial ROI in less than two years. Today, leading cities around the world are choosing Cleverciti.”

Parker’s CEO succession was in the making for the past few years: “When I asked David to join Cleverciti, I did so with the plan that he would eventually succeed me as CEO,” said Hohenacker. “With the transition complete, now I am able to shift my focus to key strategic topics as a member of the board.”

“Thomas is a visionary entrepreneur, developing and implementing the patents, AI sensor and unique smart parking guidance systems that are the core of Cleverciti. He had the foresight that parking-as-we-know-it had to change by providing precise data for drivers to save them valuable time and by enabling a powerful parking management system for operators,” said Parker. “Today, we have the top team, industry-leading product, and confidence of a strong customer base to realize his vision at a global scale.”

Parker came to Cleverciti from Cox Automotive where he served as COO of Modix, the leading global automotive digital marketing solution. At Modix, he led the expansion of the business across more than 60 countries. Throughout his career, he has held senior-level roles and advisory positions with a wide range of high-growth tech businesses with successful exits, including Dealer.com (sold to Dealertrack), Dealertrack (Sold to Cox Automotive), and BentoBox (sold to Fiserv).

Cleverciti Sensors Bring Smart Parking to the Busiest Shopping Street in Koblenz

Cleverciti Sensors Bring Smart Parking to the Busiest Shopping Street in Koblenz

 

City of Koblenz and evm Have Kicked off Their Smart City Projects with a Smart Parking Initiative Using Cleverciti Sensors

 

 

 

Less traffic looking for a parking space, fewer harmful emissions, a better quality of life: three funded smart city projects promise great progress in climate protection in the city of Koblenz. Together, Energieversorgung Mittelrhein (evm) and the city intend to use modern digital solutions to achieve better air quality and air pollution control.

In July 2020 the evm announced the kick-off of the project in the upper Löhrstrasse. The busy shopping street plays a central role in the project: “We are going to test smart parking in the upper Löhrstrasse and want to reduce the so-called parking search traffic here,” explains Lord Mayor of Koblenz David Langner.

In the next few weeks, certain parking spaces along the street will be equipped with 44 ground sensors that will provide information on occupancy. “In another part of the street, overhead sensors are used as well, which we install on street lamps,” explains evm Board Chairman Josef Rönz. One sensor is able to detect up to 100 parking spaces. Digital display boards around the lampposts use this information to show drivers how many parking spaces are still available. Data protection is fully guaranteed: the sensors neither record videos nor photos, but only pass on information according to the pattern “occupied” and “not occupied”.

One look at the statistics shows why it is important to reduce parking search traffic in Koblenz: between 18-25% of traffic in the city center is due to the search for parking spaces. This is one of the reasons why Koblenz exceeded the NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) limit value determined by the European Union – and thus has access to federal funds. The Federal Ministry of Transport is funding the Smart Parking project with around 170,000 euros from the “Saubere Luft” (Clean Air) program and the associated “Digitalisierung kommunaler Verkehrssysteme” fund (Digitization of municipal transport systems).

On September 30, 2020, the evm published another press release in which they announced that all sensors, which are Cleverciti Sensors, have been installed for the intelligent parking guidance system in the making. The installation covers the Löhrstraße section from the Rizzastraße intersection to Bahnhofsplatz, as well as the Peter-Altmaier-Ufer parking lot. Based on the information gathered from the sensors, drivers will soon be able to see on the internet and on digital display boards how many parking spaces are still free.

By the end of the 2020 project year, traffic counters, air quality meters and a parking guidance system that digitally displays free parking spaces are to be installed. The benefits and effects of the projects will be measured over a period of three years. The projects are being implemented with the help of federal funding and the Thüga, the largest cooperative network of municipal energy and water service providers in Germany.

CLEVERCITI SYSTEMS FLIPS THE SWITCH ON THE WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE INTELLIGENT PARKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM IN COLOGNE

CLEVERCITI SYSTEMS FLIPS THE SWITCH ON THE WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE INTELLIGENT PARKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM IN COLOGNE

 

 

Partnership with Energy Supplier RheinEnergie AG Brings Stress-Free Parking, Cleaner Air and Lighter Traffic to City of Cologne

 

 

 

MUNICH, COLOGNE (June 2, 2020) – Cleverciti Systems, the leading smart parking provider, went live today with one of the world’s most innovative and modern parking guidance systems for residents and visitors in the Cologne district of Nippes, one of the busiest districts on the Rhine. Now, motorists can read the exact number and direction of the remaining free parking spaces along the streets on local LED displays at road intersections, avoiding unnecessary searching and idling, and improving the overall quality of life. The ‘blind’ search for parking spaces, which has contributed significantly to the traffic volume and emissions pollution, is now a thing of the past.

 

The installation was made possible through a partnership with RheinEnergie AG, the fifth largest energy supplier in Germany, and supports the “SmartCity Cologne Program”, a platform that brings together private individuals, companies, and associations to promote climate protection and renewable energy initiatives. The Cleverciti smart parking system installation significantly reduces traffic and emissions, and is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as part of the program “Digitalization of Municipal Transport Systems”.

 

“We are proud that with our modern systems and services we have been able to implement one of the world’s most innovative and comprehensive parking guidance systems in the inner city area,” says Thomas Hohenacker, CEO and founder of Cleverciti Systems. “From now on, all motorists in Cologne-Nippes will have exact information on the availability of parking spaces and will be able to navigate to the best parking space in a targeted manner and without delay. We want to make a decisive contribution to making parking stress-free through this service, improving the shopping experience in the city and significantly reducing emissions.”

 

“The Cleverciti solution was optimally integrated into the existing infrastructure in Cologne-Nippes,” says Dr. Andreas Cerbe, Network Director of RheinEnergie. “We operate thousands of light poles in Cologne, which are now equipped with the smart sensors and LED displays with little effort to reduce traffic and emissions.”

 

A total of 89 ClevercitiSensors, which monitor around 800 parking spaces along the streets in the district, and 27 ClevercitiCirc LED displays are installed on existing lamp posts and seamlessly fit into the local environment. The system takes into account all data protection regulations in public areas. The sensors are designed using artificial intelligence (AI) and edge computing to provide precise data on parking space availability. These available spaces are displayed in real time on the omnidirectional LED displays and in a mobile app, and direct drivers to the nearest available parking space.

 

According to a survey by the National Platform Future of Mobility, intelligent parking solutions could reduce pollutant emissions by 900,000 tons per year in Germany alone.

CLEVERCITI DEPLOYS WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE ON-STREET PARKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF COLOGNE

February 18, 2020

CLEVERCITI DEPLOYS WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE ON-STREET PARKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF COLOGNE

 

Munich, Germany, February 18, 2020 — Cleverciti Systems, the leader in smart parking guidance and management solutions, today announced that it has been selected to enable RheinEnergie´s smart parking ambitions. The initiative, managed by energy provider RheinEnergie AG for the fourth largest city in Germany, is part of the SmartCity Cologne initiative that is designed to reduce emissions and increase innovation, digitalization, and mobility.

Cleverciti’s solution will provide turn-by-turn guidance to enable drivers to make intelligent decisions based on reliable live data indicating fully occupied on-street parking spaces in the inner city, as well as remaining available spaces. Cologne Nippes, one of the busiest and most densely populated urban districts of Cologne, has been selected for the installation of ClevercitiSensors and ClevercitiCirc360 guidance systems on Rheinenergie’s lampposts, covering 770 popular on-street parking spaces. The free or occupied status of every on-street parking space is monitored in real time. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered ClevercitiSensors provide precise parking availability data, which is displayed locally on ClevercitiCirc360 LED displays delivering live guidance to drivers. This guidance system eliminates unnecessary circling in search of a space and the associated wasted time and emissions. The ClevercitiCockpit enables leaders to manage their valuable parking assets based on precise supply and demand data.

“This sophisticated smart parking deployment is part of an effort to increase sustainable development to achieve greener environments in our smart city,” said Dr. Andreas Cerbe, RheinEnergie AG. “As an organization focused on minimizing environmental impact, we are committed to achieving reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, eliminating needless traffic, and increasing energy efficiency. To achieve these goals, we have worked closely with Cleverciti to design a smart parking solution that is proven to reduce emissions and ease traffic throughout the area. As a utility that owns and operates thousands of lampposts, we are ideally positioned to deploy additional services to benefit city residents through our existing infrastructure – transforming our lampposts into the smart city hubs of the future.”

The search for parking is a major problem for the environment, as well as a significant source of driver frustration and traffic congestion. According to Boston Consulting Group, 8 percent of Europe’s CO2 emissions come from urban traffic. Approximately 30 percent of that traffic is the result of parking search, which can be greatly reduced through adoption of Cleverciti’s smart parking solution. In Germany alone, deployment of smart parking solutions could reduce CO2 emissions by 900,000 tons annually according to Germany’s National Platform for the Future of Mobility.

“As part of SmartCity Cologne, this installation represents the most comprehensive on-street parking guidance and management system in the world and we are proud to be selected as the smart parking infrastructure that powers more efficient parking in the area,” said Thomas Hohenacker, CEO, Cleverciti. “The Cleverciti solution will be used to reduce parking search, overall distance traveled, and emissions while increasing quality of life for area residents.”“A key part of Cologne’s selection of Cleverciti was the patented ClevercitiCirc360 parking guidance technology, which guides drivers to the nearest parking spot at every critical decision point,” said Dr. Günther Picker, Cleverciti’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development. “Cleverciti offers the complete solution through its unique, AI-powered overhead parking sensors and dynamic guidance systems mounted on existing lampposts.”To support Cologne’s goals of reducing emissions from parking search traffic, the project has been funded in part by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure within the program of “Digitization of municipal transport systems”.

ClevercitiCard incorporates intelligent guidance and payment options into a single card

 

 

 

 

Munich, Germany, and Lake Forest, Ill., July 24, 2019 — Cleverciti Systems, a leader in comprehensive, high-tech solutions for smart parking, today announced the addition of the ClevercitiCard, the first system to seamlessly combine outdoor and indoor parking guidance, including single-space occupancy detection, into a credit card-sized smart card.

 

ClevercitiCard is designed to provide integrated, frictionless permit payment and parking guidance for drivers, and offers a complete management solution for parking operators in a variety of industries. An active card that sits on the windshield or the dashboard of a vehicle, ClevercitiCard eases the complexity of the parking process. It activates automatically when a car is parked and transmits the position of the vehicle with a precision of 10 inches. It then instantly communicates the appropriate permit, reservation, and payment status. With the Cleverciti app, drivers can identify open spaces upon approach to an outdoor parking area or indoor garage. The technology can also be used to provide access to gated or secure areas.

 

“With the ClevercitiCard, we can now offer a new level of parking guidance through the integration of permit and payment features for outdoor and indoor parking, without the need to install expensive infrastructure, such as single space sensors. We have placed the sensor, permit and payment functions into a single application, providing a truly seamless and comfortable parking experience for drivers,” said Thomas Hohenacker, CEO and Founder, Cleverciti System. “Companies can now manage corporate parking in a highly efficient way, and organizations with the desire to manage multiple users, including valet parking, have now complete control over their parking assets.”

 

ClevercitiCard offers a unique platform for managing permits for corporate campuses, VIP parking areas, train stations, stadiums, and many others. Employees gain instant guidance of where to park, without losing valuable time. Spaces or defined parking areas can be reserved for specific users according to their permit status, while managers can see in real-time who is parking where and manage parking assets with unmatched precision, data analytics, and insights.

 

Campuses can provide their students and faculty members with instant guidance on available parking and quickly view permit status and payment method. The Cleverciti platform gives the parking operator real-time insight of the exact position, length of stay, as well as the permit and payment status of each car. There are also numerous applications in the logistics market, such as for car dealers, car rental, and fleet management companies, where it is essential to locate the exact position of a car.

 

The Cleverciti dashboard aggregates all real-time data to allow organizations to monitor each car as well as any associated user data. Parking operators gain valuable insight into real-time occupancy statistics while drivers benefit from having instantaneous directions to available parking spaces. Furthermore, individuals save time by automatically paying, without the need to visit a meter or ticket machine.

 

Cleverciti currently has over 56 installations in 20 countries around the world. Its comprehensive suite of smart parking solutions is an ideal choice for organizations focused on a forward-thinking approach to customer service that also seeks to streamline parking and increase the revenue potential of their parking assets.

Cleverciti to Host Upcoming Webinar on Shopping Center Parking Management

 

 

Lake Forest, Ill. and Munich, Germany, Oct. 10, 2018Cleverciti Systems Corp., a leader in comprehensive, high-tech solutions for outdoor and on-street parking detection, monitoring and guidance, announced today it will host its second webinar, “Shopping Center Parking Management: A Customer-centric Approach,” at 1 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, Oct. 17.

 

Retailers know that customer service begins before people even walk in the door, which is why taking a holistic approach to facility management includes not only the comfort indoors but the convenience outdoors. And with the holiday season quickly approaching, this topic should be top of mind. Parking lots outside shopping malls and major retailers are a big part of the customer experience, and these locations can also be a potential hub for marketing messaging and branding. An intelligent technology solution provides not only streamlined parking management and an enhanced customer experience, but also increased communication and visibility.

 

In this webinar, Cleverciti will discuss the challenges that shopping centers face with regard to parking, considerations that need to be made when evaluating a facility and ways to increase both customer satisfaction and revenue through parking management technology.

 

The webinar is the second in a series from Cleverciti that is designed to educate attendees about the value of clever-parking solutions, introduce organizations to the upgraded Cleverciti solutions portfolio and outline use cases for these platforms in real-world environments. Additionally, top industry experts will share their perspectives on the current state and future development of the smart parking, smart cities and IoT markets.
