The typical driver spends over 100 days of their life searching for a parking space, time that could be spent elsewhere: with family and friends, running errands, shopping, working, starting meetings on schedule… The hunt for a parking space can be stressful and put people off shopping or visiting certain places. In addition, time spent driving around looking for parking impacts air quality due to unnecessary vehicle emissions. Parking intelligence is an increasingly useful tool for car park operators and managers keen to influence driver behaviour for the benefit of the environment, as well as the drivers themselves, local authorities, and employers.
Our Insight Parking application and vehicle sensors help our clients understand how a car park is being used at all times of the day so informed decisions can be made about how this valuable asset is managed.
Our system can also empower users of car parks to make better decisions by sharing capacity information with them before they start their journey.
Working with operators, we can provide parking solutions that highlight patterns of use, demonstrating when peak and quiet periods can be expected. This insight can guide optimum staffing levels or provide charging flexibility.
For large corporate, health and higher education car parks, access to predictions or even live-feed information about capacity makes a huge difference to staff and visitors alike. It enables them to plan journey times, make alternate working arrangements, find available spaces quickly and commute to a schedule that works best for them.
Smart Parking solutions can save time, money & reduce vehicle emissions.
Parking intelligence that creates operational efficiencies
Time spent driving around a busy car park or town centre is time that can be spent elsewhere: shopping, working, starting meetings on schedule. Parking intelligence is an increasingly useful tool for car park operators keen to influence behaviour for the benefit of the environment, as well as drivers, local authorities and employers alike.
The National Grid operational headquarters is based in Warwick. A key location to the business, this office is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week and caters for 2,800 employees and numerous visitors on a daily basis. Parking at the site has become increasingly challenging in recent years as the business has expanded.
Canterbury City Council had been investigating ways to increase the effective use of their car parks and to help reduce congestion within the City. Clearview Intelligence developed a solution to this issue by encouraging optimum use of car parks.
Clearview Intelligence was approached by Ethos VO, working in collaboration with Guildford Borough Council and Surrey County Council, to provide sensor technology to feed into the GEOmii Parking Platform. The aim of the Parking Platform is to monitor car parking spaces in and around Guildford town centre.
