The future of our cities is smart and sustainable. As electric vehicles (EVs) and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions become increasingly prominent, parking needs to evolve alongside them. ParkingAround and Fleximodo are at the forefront of this challenge, offering innovative smart parking solutions that seamlessly integrate with intelligent urban infrastructure.

Gone are the days of endlessly circling for a parking spot. ParkingAround and Fleximodo’s solutions, powered by IoT parking sensors and intelligent systems, transform parking into a streamlined and less stressful experience. These technologies are revolutionizing urban mobility, making parking a seamless part of your journey.

  1. Increased Efficiency: Smart parking systems provide real-time information about available parking spaces, allowing drivers to quickly find spots, and reducing time and fuel wasted searching for parking.
  2. Reduced Congestion: By minimizing the time spent searching for parking, smart parking systems help decrease traffic congestion and improve overall traffic flow in urban areas.
  3. Increased Revenue: Cities can optimize parking pricing using real-time data from smart parking systems, increasing revenue and offsetting the cost of the solution.
  4. Improved Sustainability: Smart parking systems contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing air pollution, decreasing carbon emissions, and promoting cleaner air in urban environments.
  5. Cost-Effective Integration: Smart parking solutions can be easily integrated into existing parking infrastructure, making them a cost-effective option for cities of all sizes.
  1. Time and Fuel Savings: Drivers benefit from reduced time and fuel consumption by quickly locating available parking spaces through real-time information provided by smart parking systems.
  2. Stress Reduction: Smart parking solutions eliminate the frustration of searching for parking spots, providing drivers with a stress-free and convenient parking experience.
  3. Cost Efficiency: Drivers save money by consuming less fuel and avoiding fines associated with parking violations, contributing to a cost-effective parking experience.
  4. Enhanced Mobility: Smart parking systems streamline the parking process, allowing drivers to manage parking-related tasks easily through online platforms and mobile apps, enhancing overall mobility.
  5. Improved Quality of Life: By reducing parking-related stress and saving time, smart parking solutions enhance the quality of life for drivers, enabling them to focus on more enjoyable activities.

The benefits extend beyond individual experiences. By directing drivers to available spaces quickly, smart parking solutions significantly reduce the time wasted circling for parking. This translates to fewer emissions and less congestion – a win-win for everyone. Studies show that smart parking solutions can cut down on traffic congestion and pollution in city centers by up to 30%. Additionally, a single digitized parking space can save an impressive 7 tons of CO₂ annually. This translates not only to a smoother parking experience but also cleaner, more breathable air for you and everyone else in the city.

The wider adoption of EVs faces a challenge: integrating charging stations into existing parking structures. ParkingAround and Fleximodo address this by enabling the smooth incorporation of EV charging stations into existing parking frameworks. This seamless integration is further enhanced by ParkingAround’s ability to unlock the potential of existing infrastructure. By enabling EV owners to share their private charging stations when unused, ParkingAround significantly increases the efficiency of the current network. This not only makes charging more accessible for EV drivers but also optimizes resource utilization, paving the way for a smoother transition to widespread electric mobility.

Smart parking fosters a dynamic and responsive urban landscape where efficient resource utilization contributes to a healthier, more livable city. The goal is to design cities not just functional, but nurturing – respectful of both inhabitants and the environment.

By embracing smart technologies, city planners can create a future-proofed city. This means accommodating advancements in EVs and MaaS, transforming cities into hubs of smart mobility. This goes beyond simply adopting new tools, but also rethinking urban infrastructure to be adaptable and resilient.

Let’s embrace these changes with enthusiasm, working together to create thriving and sustainable cities for generations to come.
