Berlin to test radar-based parking space detection


Siemens has launched a pilot project in Berlin aimed at simplifying the search for a parking space. The company has installed radar sensors on street lamps, for test and demonstration purposes, that provide information on parking space occupancy. The network of sensors scans from above an area of up to 30 metres, the equivalent of five to eight parking spaces. The test results should prove that by reducing parking search traffic the system is suitable for cutting CO2 emissions. Street lamps on a 200-metre-long section of road have been fitted with radar sensors that continuously monitor urban parking areas and report free parking spaces and the number of occupied e-parking spots to parking space management software.
