Following the introduction of intelligent parking to the European traffic market at Intertraffic 2016 in April and at the ITS European Congress in Glasgow, Siemens is exhibiting its innovative range of enforcement and parking products at Parkex 2016 (15/16 June, stand F52), Europe’s largest dedicated parking exhibition and conference at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Leading traffic management company Siemens will demonstrate its new Intelligent Parking system at the ITS European Congress in Glasgow this week (06-09 June 2016) on stand B52 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. At the event, Product Manager Priscilla Boyd will present Intelligent Parking - Where ITS and Smart Cities unite in Theatre 1 on Thursday 09 June at 9:00am. The paper explores the integration of intelligent parking bay sensing technologies with traffic management systems, the impact that parking has on traffic and how traffic management can be used to mitigate those issues including future integration with connected and autonomous vehicles.
A 12 month research project deploying Siemens technology to gather information on vehicle emissions in Birmingham got underway in April 2016 as part of the Government’s ongoing efforts to meet EU air quality targets. Clean Air Zones have been identified by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) as a potential mechanism, not only to improve air quality in urban areas but to also help avoid potential financial penalties, and have funding made available to local authorities to study their feasibility.
Siemens, working closely with infrastructure provider Network Rail and train operating company Govia Thameslink Railway, has completed the latest upgrades to its Hornsey traincare facility, constructing a fully integrated depot signalling system and an innovative depot personnel protection system (DPPS) to create optimum levels of safety for those working on site.
