EMEL is the company that manages mobility and parking in Lisbon. Accordingly, the company launched a public tender for the supply, installation and maintenance of a parking space monitoring solution dedicated to loading and unloading operations, under the C-ROADS PORTUGAL project.
This call is co-financed through the European Connecting Europe Facility (MIE) / Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program.
Attentive to the needs of its residents, as well as those who circulate in the city streets, whether for work or leisure, EMEL's goal is to make urban mobility safer, more responsible and more reliable.
With a total value of 370 thousand euros, 50 percent of which financed by CEF, the company is looking for a system that monitors 650 parking spaces on the public road, reserved for loading and unloading operations, in the area between Baixa Lisboeta and the Large field.
The objective is that this solution allows to map these places and detect their availability (free / busy) in real time, thus making circulation more fluid on the city streets.
The award criteria take into account, in addition to the cost, the level of openness of the proposed system (enabling the direct communication of data with the EMEL monitoring platform) and the degree of sophistication of the equipment, namely if it allows checking the status by frequency independent communication (eg Bluetooth), time stamp functionality when detecting change of state, communication with other devices (smartphones, car navigation equipment or on-board key for proxy for parked vehicle identification) is allowed and it is compatible with degree of protection IP69.
