ParkPilot is one of the world’s most innovative and state-of-the-art parking guidance systems. A total of 27 LED displays have been installed on lampposts to show motorists in Cologne’s Nippes district the exact number of available public parking spaces and where they are located. To do this, 89 sensors monitor around 800 parking spaces in the 0.5 km² project area – in real time.
The digital parking management system significantly reduces both the volume of traffic searching for spaces and the associated emissions. The system takes into account all the data protection regulations applicable to public spaces. The project is being implemented on a section of Neusser Straße, which has been dubbed the “Klimastraße” (Climate Street). There, the project partners are demonstrating and trialling innovative ideas and forward-looking technologies that protect the environment and simplify urban life.
