Smart parking sensor technology: Creating smarter and more accessible parking

Consultation has concluded.

Progress Update

We installed the first sensors in Light Square and Morphett Street (between Franklin and Waymouth Streets) on Tuesday 27 February 2018.

This pilot installation was to test the functionality of the system. Following its success, we are rolling out more sensors across Adelaide. Our aim is to install sensors in 30–100 parking spaces per day.

Installation includes:

• Marking individual parking spaces
• Providing each space with a unique five-digit number
• Drilling a 15cm hole in each space and inserting a sensor
• Installing Smart Spot relays onto electrical poles

Each sensor only takes a few minutes to set up. The process begins with line painting. We then drill the hole and install the sensor.

You may notice short term changes to parking, including No Stopping signs. This is to ensure parking spaces are clear of vehicles to allow installation to take place. Once installation is complete, we will return the parking spaces back to normal use.

Smart Parking will go live following the launch in mid-2018. Smart Parking - City of Adelaide

    Background

    With about 200,000 vehicles accessing the City daily, parking has a significant impact on the experience of city visitors and residents, as well as business vitality and our economic growth. Efficient parking management makes it easier to do business, supporting the economic prosperity of our City. It also minimises the time drivers spend circling trying to find an available park, which helps reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions.

    Project Information

    The City of Adelaide plans to implement smart parking technology to improve the parking experience. The technology will include an app that provides people with accurate real-time information about parking availability, alert people if their parking is about to run out, and allow people to pay for their on-street car park using their smart phone or device, including topping up their payment to extend to the maximum time limit.
