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 early 2019.
