In summer 2018 the project Smarter Together published a second innovation tender call (“open call). The two focus areas were “Traffic counting” and “Parking management”.
In fall 2018 a city jury chose for two winner teams in the area of “traffic counting”:
- ParkHere in cooperation with Swarco
The city jury also chose for two winner team in the area of the “parking management”:
- Cleverciti in cooperation with Axians and Cisco
The preparation work with the winning teams started in October 2018. The installation of the sensor solutions on the intelligent lampposts in Limesst. and Bodenseestr. is scheduled for the first quarter 2019.
The installations in Limesstr. cover traffic counting solutions (cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes, pedestrians) as well as parking management solutions.
In Bodenseestr. only traffic counting sensors will be installed.
Both topics will be installed to test the technologies as well as potential additional installation areas in the city of Munich. The monitoring and evaluation phase will take 2 years.
The chosen sensor technologies do not allow to detect any privacy related information. Traffic counting is based on innovative radar technology. Parking detection is based on optical sensors that only allow to detect positions of objects in the defined parking areas. The used sensors are not able to generate any photos or videos. A detection of car licence tags or any other individual personal characteristics is technically not possible.
