Smart Parking to deploy vehicle detection sensor solution across Hobart, Tasmania


Smart Parking, in partnership with Australian Parking and Revenue Control (APARC), has secured a contract from Hobart City Council in Tasmania to deploy its vehicle detection sensor solution across the city.

Under the agreement, Smart Parking will implement Parkeon 7in colour screen parking meters, integrated enforcement, sensors, a mobile phone parking app, and a real-time credit card processing system.

Smart Parking will install 2,100 in-ground vehicle detection sensors, which will collect and transmit real-time data to Hobart City Council.

Information about available parking spaces will be provided to residents via the council's back-office management reporting software and smartphone application.

"We are also pleased to be working with APARC, which distributes machines made by Parkeon, a major player in parking management solutions."

The Parkeon colour-screen meters will allow the council to display a wide range of messages, as well as accept payment by ApplePay.

Smart Parking CEO Paul Gillespie said: “We are proud to announce the new contract with Hobart City Council. The continued uptake of our systems in Australia and beyond further cements our position as a world leader in the design, development and management of parking technology.

“We are also pleased to be working with APARC, which distributes machines made by Parkeon, a major player in parking management solutions”.

The company have also integrated Arthur D Riley’s enforcement and parking payment applications with the Parkeon meters and vehicle detection sensors.
