The Challenge

The local administration of the city of Nice faced a critical mobility situation which was causing serious management problems and pollution harmful to the quality of life of its citizens. The objective of the project developed with our partners for the Nice administration was to reduce the vehicle flow to the city centre and encourage the use of alternative transport.

The Solution

1) Sensing system The project is based on the deployment of 4,500 U-Spot sensors and 570 kiosks. The sensors detect in real time the occupation of the parking spaces to which 550,000 users have already accessed. 2) Real-time information Our MOV’Smart solution informs citizens of parking availability and rates in real time as well as alternative transport options (public transport, bicycles, shared cars, etc.). 3) Boosts local trade The project improves the user’s experience and boosts local trade through practical information on the local area and entertainment activities or sales promotions (hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, weather, etc.). 4) Prevents saturation This system enables the administration and city managers to apply dynamic prices to parking based on availability, traffic and even current pollution levels. Adapting prices allows them to influence traffic density, preventing saturation and greatly reducing pollution in the city. Users check all the information on the Internet, smartphones and panels installed in the street, making it much easier to decide where to park and the best way to get around the city. The Nice administration recognises the improvement in the quality of life of its citizens.
