First Parking Solution of its Kind in Croatia: Split Becomes Smarter this Week with Sensors!

Daniela Rogulj

This is the first complete solution for smart parking in Croatia and a big step towards integrating Split into a smart city!

Drivers in Split, rejoice! This moment calls for a celebration.

This Wednesday and Thursday, November 29th and 30th, smart parking sensors will be installed at two locations in Split: during the morning at Poljička cesta in front of the “Montera” building, and in the afternoon at the parking lot on Šoltanska street in front of the “Križine” hospital. The complete installation of all planned street sensors is scheduled for March next year, reports Dalmacija News on November 28, 2017. 

This is the first comprehensive solution for smart parking in Croatia and represents another step towards integrating Split into a smart city system. The goal of the project is to help citizens find parking spaces easier, cut crowds and reduce emissions and harmful gases. The system offers practical solutions to parking problems, including easier parking payments and the ability to report illegally parked vehicles. Bravo, Split Parking!

Wireless sensors will be installed at 43 parking lots for a total of 1,360 parking spaces, and the wireless network of relays and data collectors will be connected via the central system. All existing outside parking lots under the control of Split Parking will also be connected to the central system. 

All users of the Split Parking application will be able to see, with a real-time map, which parking spaces are available and occupied and where disabled parking places are available. Also, the application offers navigation to free parking spaces.

Upon the completion of this project, the City of Split will become the first city on the European continent to have all street parking spaces (within a payment system) covered by sensor technology and integrated into the Smart Parking application.

All citizens of Split will be informed about the installment of street sensors at every location the day before they begin. The installments will be marked following all safety regulations, and there will be no need to close traffic lanes, except for at the two locations on the day of the installation. Installations will be temporarily suspended during the Christmas holidays.

Work will be performed in stages, and at major parking locations, work will be done in a single area, while the other parts will remain in day-to-day operative function. In the event of extremely unfavorable weather conditions, and for security reasons, work will be suspended temporarily and the public will be informed promptly.

Split is on the road to getting smarter!
