By implementing Nedap SENSIT sensors with Green Center parking guidance system, traffic flow in Tri-City has increased vastly Tri-City, consisting of the Polish cities of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia, introduced the TRISTAR project to improve traffic efficiency. Nedap’s parking sensors are installed to maximise the utilisation of the existing on-street parking capacity. TRISTAR project for traffic management in Tri-City Tri-City is the urban area situated on the Baltic coast and is one of Poland’s largest tourist attractions. Each of the three cities offers a very different atmosphere which makes it a very attractive area to both visitors and inhabitants. The area knows a large number of traffic movements on a daily basis, especially in the city centres. These traffic movements cause traffic problems: congestion, accidents and no access to real-time information about public transport and where available parking spaces are available. To reduce and prevent these problems, the TRISTAR project was implemented. Intelligent Transport System & Nedap SENSIT wireless parking sensors The TRISTAR project consists of the deployment of an Intelligent Transport System (ITS). This project comprises five integrated systems to manage public transportation and maximise the utilisation of the existing parking facilities. Nedap's parking sensors provide real-time information about the usage of those parking facilities. Nedap’s SENSIT consists of wireless parking sensors that detect in real-time whether or not a single parking bay is occupied and how long it has been occupied. Green Center’s parking guidance system was implemented with SENSIT. The system uses the real-time parking information to guide drivers to available parking spaces via dynamic signs along the roads. "Nedap’s SENSIT turned out to be easy, quick to install and very flexible for integration with the other ITS TRISTAR platforms", says Jakub Osuchowski, Technical Director Green Center Ido Wentink, Business Development Manager at Nedap, says: “We are delighted to have been selected for this mobility project in the Tri-City region of Gdansk. Thanks to our partner Green Center, the system already runs for some time now and proved its value for motorists looking for a parking space. I am sure Polish cities are ready to implement a reliable parking sensor system SENSIT in order to offer citizens great parking services and for operators to improve monitoring and enforcement in these zones.” Increased traffic flow By implementing Nedap’s SENSIT sensors with Green Center’s parking guidance system, the traffic flow in Tri-City has increased vastly. Less traffic congestion, and thus decreased pollution, ensures the city remains attractive to its residents and visitors. Additionally, parking utilisation is optimised and enforcement can be done more efficiently. "As the parking solutions integrator in the TRISTAR project, Green Center, wanted to provide a reliable and proven solution for the cities motorists. Therefore, choosing Nedap’s parking sensor system was the right way to go for us. Nedap’s SENSIT turned out to be easy, quick to install and very flexible for integration with the other ITS TRISTAR platforms. Dynamic parking occupancy information allows drivers in Gdynia to find available parking spaces quicker and easier, bringing the obvious benefits to the city." says Jakub Osuchowski, Technical Director Green Center
