Westminster City Council is currently running a pilot to improve congestion in London’s West End via a mobile app, using sensor technology and data analytics, in 200 parking spaces; it now wants to extend the trial to between 10,000 and 35,000 spaces which could cost up to GBP 15 million.
The trial uses infra-red sensors to detect whether a car is parked in a spot or not; it then relays this information in real-time to a database and to a mobile app for drivers.
