The sensor that will be used for both projects is the U-Spot M2M, a spot-to-spot detection sensor that uses the mobile network directly. In addition, there will be 5 information panels to guide drivers directly to the free spaces.
Thanks to the sensorization of the parking spaces, the residents of the localities will be guided directly to the free spaces and the traffic and chaos generated by vehicles looking for parking will be avoided.
The parking space information collected by the sensors will be integrated with the Thinking Cities Telefonica platform, a FIWARE-based platform that allows connecting devices and receiving data, integrating all device protocols and connectivity methods.
With this simple smart parking system, Salamanca guarantees real-time information to its neighbors so they can easily decide where to park their vehicle. Optimal use of the spaces is guaranteed thanks to up-to-date information. In addition, they are guided to the areas with the highest parking availability.
China: entrepreneurs create intelligent parking
The Audi Park Assist is available from the compact in its five-door version of the family of the four rings, the Audi A3 Sportback. It is available as an option from its most basic finish and its price is 1,060 euros.
It operates identically to Audi’s Park Assist, selecting the appropriate space at low speeds and parallel or in-line parking. The driver, after selecting the function from the console, only has to deal with the pedals as well as the gear shift.
Ford’s Active Park Assist is already available on its Fiesta utility vehicle, only in five-door bodywork and from its Trend+ finish, which is the second in the range. The autonomous parking assistance system can only be purchased as an option through the City+ Pack package, priced at 375 euros.
This includes in addition to the parking assist system, front and rear sensors, reversing camera, ground illumination optics and electric mirrors with built-in turn signal. Ford’s Park Assist parks both perpendicularly and in line, autonomously operating the steering wheel.
New Nissan X-TRAIL – Intelligent Parking Assistant
“Always better”, that’s our motto. Living up to it means we don’t take a breath in innovating and improving our cars to make your life easier. Parking with peace of mind is one of those innovations. We started with proximity sensors that let you know the distance, then we integrated the rearview camera, and now your car can park itself.

You will see that the SIPA on-board computer will be showing you its check of the spot it is tracking thanks to the sensors. When it finishes calculating the distances of the spot you have chosen, it will tell you whether you have to make any further maneuvers or not, such as moving the car a little forward.
