The CityParking application is a virtual parking assistant. This allows real-time visualization of the availability of parking spots in the city, specifying also the type of parking space.

Furthermore, the CityParking assistant guides the user to the nearest parking facility in order to reduce as much as possible the time to search for an available space. The application was developed within the Smart City suite of solutions offered by Life is Hard S.A, called City Apps and represents the congeries of its efforts and vision to contribute to improving the quality of everyday life of the citizen, as well as the experience of visitors to the city. After all, a few minutes saved in traffic are worth more time spent with your loved ones or doing a nice activity.

Note: For Alba Iulia, the solution will become functional after completing the integration tests with the parking space sensors.

  • Improving parking acces, with a direct result in de-congestion;
  • Because the user knows what parking facilities are free or where parking places are available in a particular parking, drivers no longer drive to locations that are no longer available;
  • Reduces traffic jams, pollution and increases the citizen’s satisfaction.
