  • Innovative solution designed by UK start-up AppyParking aims to reduce the 4 days wasted by the average UK motorist each year looking for parking spaces[1]

  • Over 2,000 new smart parking sensors in bays across Harrogate town centre will help transform parking experience for thousands of users

  • Unique combination of in-app One Click Parking™ and smart sensors for the first time provides real-time availability of parking spaces, streamlined payments and a parking data analytics dashboard for councils to use





HARROGATE, UK – 28 January 2019: AppyParking, the kerbside management and smart parking technology firm, has announced their innovative Smart City Parking solution is now fully available to Harrogate’s residents. The launch represents an important milestone in the UK start-up’s mission to make parking forgettable by providing transformative user experiences for motorists and data-driven solutions for local authorities to better understand and manage kerbside assets.


The Smart City Parking solution is the first of its kind to integrate technical capabilities such as smart parking sensors, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) barriers and sensor-enabled payments into a consolidated system, offering a seamless experience for users across both on and off-street parking[2]and a powerful kerbside utilisation tool for local authorities.


One Click Parking™, a concept created by AppyParking with the support of payments technology company Visa, enables users of the app, once parked over a sensor, to start and pay for parking sessions that automatically end when they drive away.  Users of the app will benefit from pay-per-minute rates, allowing drivers to pay only for the time they are parked and avoid paying upfront for time they don’t use with a pay and display ticket.


With full visibility of parking availability across the town, users can check for spaces near their destination and then drive straight there, reducing the time and fuel spent looking for parking, helping ease congestion and contributing to a reduction in vehicle emissions.

Through the service, the councils also have access to an analytics dashboard which shows parking utilisation data.  As the app gets used at scale, this means local authorities will for the first time be able to view parking heatmaps and demand flows, and generally gain a better understanding of how their parking assets are consumed.  AppyParking’s ambition is for this insight to inform traffic planning, parking infrastructure, help stimulate the high street and prepare cities for a future of connected and automated vehicles.


Commenting on the launch, Dan Hubert, CEO and Founder of AppyParking, said: “We’re so excited to be helping local residents and visitors save time finding and paying for parking in Harrogate.  Delivering this project is testament to the positive relationships we’ve formed with forward-thinking and supportive partners like Visa, Harrogate Borough Council and North Yorkshire County Council.


We know these are challenging times for local authorities and we’re passionate about creating business models and solutions that work for everyone. We’re eager to see how the data we surface through our analytics portal is used by Councils and look forward to bringing our service to more towns and cities in the UK later this year.”


AppyParking and Visashare a vision for developing innovative solutions that remove friction for users when accessing and paying for transportation services.  Visa supported AppyParking in bringing their concept to market by seamlessly implementing payments into the customer journey through One Click Parking™. The solution isbeing demonstrated in Visa’s global network of Innovation Centres including London, Dubai and Frankfurt, showcasing how new payment technologies are transforming consumer experiences in transportation.

APCOA’s Royal-Hamilius car park opens to the public in Luxembourg

October 05, 2018




APCOA’s Royal-Hamilius car park opens to the public in Luxembourg



  • The new, multi-storey underground car park has opened its doors

  • Situated below Place Emile Hamilius, the new underground parking facility provides spaces for 628 vehicles

  • In close collaboration with the City of Luxembourg and CODIC, APCOA is responding to strong demand for parking spaces in the heart of the city




Stuttgart / Luxembourg – APCOA PARKING Group opened 27 September 2018 its new Royal-Hamilius multi-storey underground car park in the centre of Luxembourg City. Thanks to APCOA, visitors to Luxembourg’s city centre now have 628 new parking spaces at their disposal, in a modern, safe and highly functional environment.


Philippe Op de Beeck, Chief Executive Officer APCOA PARKING Holding and Detlef Wilmer, Managing Director of APCOA PARKING Deutschland GmbH, which played a key role in the new car park’s development, are delighted that residents and visitors to central Luxembourg will now be able to experience APCOA’s exceptional services. Together with Thierry Behiels, CEO of CODIC International, and Lydie Polfer, Mayor of the City of Luxembourg, they inaugurated the latest addition to APCOA’s family of multi-story parking facilities after the ceremonial cutting of the red ribbon. The festivities were also attended by Patrick Goldschmidt, the alderman responsible for mobility, and Serge Wilmes, 1st alderman and responsible for economic development and trade.


“The inauguration of the Royal-Hamilius underground parking facility marks the opening our first multi-storey car park in Luxembourg, in the heart of Luxembourg City, in one of the country’s central mobility hubs. The car park has thus been designed to provide a seamlessly integrated, innovative parking solution. In addition, the advanced traffic management system that we developed jointly with the city will help further optimise traffic flows in the city centre, and efficiently guide drivers directly to their designated parking spaces”, said Detlef Wilmer.


“For the City of Luxembourg, the opening of the Royal-Hamilius underground car park crowns the important first stage of a major urban development project. Accessibility to the heart of the city will be greatly improved by these new parking facilities, as will access and use of public transport and soft mobility(i.e. human powered, non-motorised mobility) options. With the creation of these 628 new parking spaces, 400 of which are reserved for the general public, the total number of available parking spaces in the city centre will increase to 3,400, with a total of 14,000 in the City of Luxembourg as a whole”, explained Lydie Polfer.


An initial, but major first step

The underground parking facility is one of the key features of Royal-Hamilius and has been developed beneath the building complex. The multi-storey car park has six levels and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The spaces are modern and bright, and include the ample provision of parking spaces for women and families, as well as parking for people with reduced mobility. The underground car park has six parking spaces with electric vehicle charging points.


“We are proud to of the fact that this trend-setting, premium, multi-storey car park is now available to the public. Visitors will appreciate the high level of comfort, and enjoy a pleasant and convenient parking experience thanks to the extended range of integrated services”, said Wilmer.


Car park and art gallery in one

“In addition to fulfilling its primary function as an underground car park, this facility also serves as an art gallery. In keeping with the uniqueness of the project, the walls of each parking level have been decorated with works of art, thereby enriching the urban street art scene and making the car park well worth a visit for the art alone”, said Mayor Polfer.


The new, multi-storey car park is not only home to desperately needed parking space, it is also the first extraordinary art installation to be made accessible in the public space of an underground car park. Six artists, Valentina Canseco, Gaëtan Henrioux, Kosta Kulundzic, Dorothée Recker, Axel Sanson and Lise Stoufflet, designed exclusive frescos for each of the underground car park’s six levels. The frescos were unveiled during the opening ceremony and can now be viewed by visitors to the car park, thereby combing the functionality of an underground car park with the artistic flair of a public art gallery.


“For me, art and architecture are inextricably linked. I want their interplay to be a distinguishing feature of CODIC International’s projects. Royal Hamilius is a work of art in its own right: the architects, Foster & Partners and Tetra Kayser & Associés, have designed remarkable facades featuring only the highest quality materials, while the interiors have been designed by Nathalie Jacoby and her team of young designers at Njoy. Tobias Link is creating an absolutely magical Royal Hamilius at night. Landscaping will be meticulously planned and the main business areas will be flooded with light thanks to the property’s glass roof. CODIC International has been involved in every detail, from the Sky Restaurant to the multi-storey car park”, explained Thierry Behiels.


About Royal-Hamilius

Royal-Hamilius is an iconic development, creating a unique combination of retail, offices, apartments and gastronomy in the heart of Luxembourg City. Major retail brands, including the classic French department store Galeries Lafayette and the media, leisure and cultural retailer Fnac have taken major leases and will soon be opening their first ever stores in Luxembourg. Royal-Hamilius will also be home to the Sky Garden, a rooftop garden and restaurant with panoramic views over central Luxembourg.

Fybr Partners with SMC Labs to turn San Mateo County into a Living Lab for Regional Innovation



Fybr is pleased to announce a partnership with SMC Labs, San Mateo County’s Smart Region Innovation Lab, to deploy cutting edge Internet of Things (IoT) technology within two of the county’s innovation zones. SMC Labs will use Fybr’s end-to-end, integrated IoT platform to pilot several use cases, including parking, irrigation management, air quality and asset management. Fybr will also partner with SMC to test new technologies and potential solutions that facilitate the resolution of complex regional issues within San Mateo County.


Fybr provides an end-to-end integrated platform. The platform comprises Fybr sensors, gateway, cloud platform and user interface (web based dashboard, and mobile app). The solution connects a variety of Fybr and non-Fybr sensors, and transmits its data securely to the cloud. The data is then processed, analyzed, and returned to a user interface to provide valuable information and actionable insights in realtime with the goal of making life better for residents of San Mateo County.

As an example of innovation in action, SMC Labs is conducting pilots with Fybr’s parking sensors with electric vehicle (EV) spaces. This pilot evaluates new ways of encouraging EV use by addressing “recharge anxiety” – the reluctance of drivers to use their EVs because of fears they may not be able to find charging stations. This is particularly relevant, where 49% of all electric vehicle (EV) owners in the United States, reside in California according to the International Council of Clean Transportation. By coupling data from Fybr’s parking occupancy sensors with its Parking Genius app, drivers can get real-time information on available EV charging spaces and turn-by-turn directions navigating directly to those spaces. San Mateo County officials will have visibility into EV parking space statistics, including occupancy rates, turnover, and availability. This allows them to plan and allot additional EV parking spaces in the future.

SMC Labs is part of a broader regional initiative by the County of San Mateo to deploy and validate the benefits of “smart technologies” including IoT, machine learning, data analytics and blockchain across a host of known and as yet unknown use cases. By bringing together a network of solutions vendors, services providers and subject matter experts, SMC Labs fosters active collaboration with a diverse group of stakeholders (including area residents, cities, businesses and universities), to solve regional problems that improve the lives of county residents.

Fybr is proud to be part of San Mateo County’s Smart Region innovation lab. The adaptability of Fybr’s secure platform will allow SMC Labs to demonstrate how almost any sensor can be connected to the physical world to collect, process and analyze data and return actionable insights in real time using one underlying IoT platform,” says Bob Glatz, Chief Executive Officer of Fybr. “In addition to hosting various proven solutions, the Fybr platform is ideal for rapid prototyping and experimentation with new sensor solutions.”

About Fybr

Fybr is the world’s leader in parking sensor management solutions, delivering real-time data to actively connect and improve communities of all sizes. Fybr helps keep traffic flowing with useful information about residents and visitors – people with individual lives, unique needs and distinct goals – not just cold, clinical numbers. Fybr’s data is drawn directly from city life, with tangible applications that bring fresh energy to communities large and small – all through smarter parking.

Nedap ensures fast ground transport access at Auckland Airport


While 15 million passengers travel through Auckland Airport every year already, this number is anticipated to grow rapidly in the upcoming years. The Ground Transportations Plan was redesigned to ensure that service levels required meet the demands of the many passengers. To offer extremely reliable, fast and secure access to all ground transport vehicles, Nedap’s TRANSIT and MOOV were installed.




15 million passengers a year

Auckland Airport is the major connection between the world and “the land of the long white cloud”. Over 70% of visitors enter or leave New Zealand via Auckland Airport, which handles over 19 million passengers a year. More than 20 international airlines serve Auckland Airport, Australasia’s third busiest international airport, after Sydney.As New Zealand’s major transport hub, Auckland Airport is continually developing the capacity and services to ensure it will sustainably cope with an anticipated 40 million passengers a year by 2044, reflecting New Zealand’s growing popularity as one of the world’s leading tourism destinations.


Ground Transportations Plan

In response to this expected growth, the Ground Transportations Plan was redesigned to ensure that service levels required meet passenger demands. All ground transport vehicles (such as taxis, tour buses, emergency services and other commercial vehicles) are automatically registered by the TRANSIT as they pass through the restricted areas, only accessible for authorised vehicles using Nedap’s Compact Tags.


Each transport vehicle is identified up to 10 meters by Nedap’s TRANSIT readers. As soon as the vehicle approaches this high-end vehicle identification reader, the vehicle is automatically identified, ensuring a fast and secure traffic flow without any congestion. A wide variety of vehicles of different heights are accurately identified in each lane, which is key for any transaction based charging solution


Independent control system

The TRANSIT readers are connected to Nedap’s MOOV VMC system. The  MOOV VMC offers an independent control system that registers and records each transaction. The MOOV VMC application controls the entire vehicle access to the restricted Ground Transport areas.


The MOOV VMC Lite is connected to the existing barriers on site. Nedap’s TRANSIT readers and controllers are installed at the entrance and exit to the taxi and bus holding area. In addition each vehicle entering and existing the domestic and international terminals are registered using the Nedap TRANSIT and MOOV VMC system. Each controller is connected to a central web application. A service portal is available to monitor the status of each controller for each location, enabling easy remote management and control.


Martyn Brewer, Commercial Manager Ground Transportation at Auckland Airport, says: “the Nedap Transit system provides a reliable solution for access by a large fleet of commercial vehicles.   Auckland Airport is embracing new inovative technology and the Nedap solution is a direct example of leading solutions.”


Proven airport solution

Nedap’s TRANSIT has proven itself world-wide in airport applications, where security and fast identification are the key to ensuring traffic flow on the airport. Extremely reliable identification is the basis for transaction based payment processing.  The TRANSIT readers and MOOV vehicle management controllers record over 30.000 transactions per month.


Account based payment solution

Each transaction with exact date and time is transferred to Advam’s GroundTransport system for payment processing of each transaction. GroundTransport is the leading traffic management solution that allows operators to manage traffic flow for taxis, limousines and buses. It facilitates the entry, exit and tolling of ground transport vehicles, whilst easing congestion and improving the overall passenger experience.


The account based solution allows drivers to register online and self-manage their funds. Once registered, drivers can seamlessly enter, exit and pay for access to nominated ground transport areas. The GroundTransport system receives the data on each transaction from the Nedap’s vehicle management controllers and Nedap’s TRANSIT system enabling the airport to easily manage the traffic flow and provide an automated solution for ground transport vehicles.


Secured vehicle access

Next to the Ground Transport application, Nedap’s TRANSIT readers are also installed at the airport to facilitate automatic long range secured vehicle access to restricted areas of the airport. The TRANSIT readers are integrated into the existing access control system provided by CEM. Authorised vehicles use a Window Button to get access to the restricted zone.


The system has been supplied by supplied by ISCS New Zealand, Nedap’s distribution partner in New Zealand.


Split introduces 1.500 smart on-street parking spaces with Nedap

March 13, 2018




Split introduces 1.500 smart on-street parking spaces with Nedap



The city of Split in Croatia selected Nedap to improve on-street parking. Nedap’s SENSIT, a sensor-based vehicle detection system, is implemented for a total of 1.500 parking bays in three paid parking zones. On and off street parking in Split is managed by the public entity Split Parking. In this project, Nedap closely cooperates with the Croatian companies Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Profico and Infoart.


Smart parking Split

Split Parking manages and controls on and off street parking in Split, the second-largest city in Croatia. The city is located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea and is a popular destination for tourists. Split is the first Croatian city to introduce an integral solution for smart parking in Croatia. The Smart Parking Split project represents a big step forward in the field of mobility in smart cities in Croatia and is awarded with the ‘Smart Mobility Award 2017’.


After a successfully implemented pilot project, Nedap partners with Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Profico and Infoart. Ericsson Nikola Tesla – an associated company of the Ericsson Group – is system integrator and responsible for the city wide implementation of the ICT solution for smart parking. The centralized software is developed by the Split-based company Profico. Infoart is the leading provider of mobile payment solutions in Croatia. The application is available for all mobile platforms and integrates new and existing systems for on and off street parking from Split Parking.


Real-time parking data

Real-time vehicle occupancy data from 1.500 parking spaces at 43 different locations in the streets of Split is detected by Nedap SENSIT. SENSIT consists for wireless bay-mounted sensors that detect whether or not a single parking bay is occupied and how long it has been occupied. The sensors are connected to the central system through a wireless network of relay nodes and data collectors.


Improving the parking experience

“During the pilot phase, Nedap’s SENSIT has proven to be the leading sensor-based vehicle detection system for on-street parking applications,” says Marko Bartulić, Director of Split Parking. “Split has a total 7.000 parking spaces divided over three paid parking zones. Combined with 92.000 registered vehicles and being a tourist hub, a smart approach for both on and off street parking is extremely important. The first goal is to improve the overall parking experience for our citizens. Therefor Split Parking introduced a brand new mobile parking application. The app integrates all parking in Split and can be used by motorists helping to find an available parking space effectively and ensuring a smooth running mobile payment process. The interest for the app is huge: in just three days over 6.000 people downloaded the application.”


Besides an improved parking experience for citizens, Split Parking would like to make the city more attractive for visitors and tourists. Additionally, to specific user groups such as disabled people and tourist coaches a better service can be offered. The smart parking solution is also used by Split Parking to closely manage, analyze and control the usage of single parking spaces in real time.
