Short description: The aim is to reduce the unnecessary driving in the city in order to find a parking lot easier by smart parking solutions. Solutions may include technical solutions for forecasting or showing real time data of available parking lots. Biggest challenge here is city wide affordable scaleability.
Market potential: Optimizing traffic in city area is a goal for smart cities. Solutions are widely scale-able. Owner of this challenge is a city, so the solution is easy to apply to other cities and municipalities.
Timing: The challenge is part of the process of developing and piloting mobility hubs. Optimizing of mobility is an ongoing process for the owner the challenge. Nordic seasons may affect piloting.
Desired result: Smart parking solutions that allows the city to optimize traffic in mobility hubs, reduce unnecessary driving and congestions, smoothen traffic flow and reduce overall traffic carbon emissions. Collect and utilize relevant (open)data. Solutions must be usable in all weather conditions.
Information on challenge owner: City/municipality (200k residents).
