Incinity and Nedap cooperate to optimize the utilization of parking spaces in Europe
June 07, 2021
Nedap and Incinity join forces to enable cities to optimize the utilization of available parking spaces. The integration between Nedap’s smart parking sensors and Incinity’s software solution ensures optimization of traffic and parking management, in order to guide drivers to an available parking space. Through this optimization, valuable data about traffic flows in cities will be collected 24/7 and search traffic and CO2 emissions will be reduced.
Incinity and Invipo Platform
Incinity is a Czech software house developing and delivering its own integration platform for smart cities and intelligent transportation systems called Invipo. Incinity has been active for over five years in the market and has come up with a new innovative product for the integration of urban technologies and efficient city management. The developed Invipo platform connects urban technologies, systems and services and generates a comprehensive view of the urban big data. It provides the city with a complex tools for observing both historical data, as well as the current situation and trends.
Real-time parking data with Nedap’s SENSIT
Nedap’s SENSIT plays a crucial role within this parking solution because of their real-time parking data that provides insight into the availability of the parking space itself. Nedap’s SENSIT delivered a parking bay occupancy detection platform that utilizes robust, accurate and cost-effective IoT based in-ground parking sensors. The parking data that indicates whether a space is occupied and, if so, for how long, is seamlessly integrated into Incinity’s software Invipo. The integration of Nedap SENSIT’s parking data into the Invipo platform is certified by Incinity.
Joint solution to optimize the parking capacity
The combination of SENSIT parking data and Invipo platform allow parking and traffic authorities to make optimal policy decisions based on real-time and analytical occupancy data. With this joint solution, cities get insight into the utilization of parking bays and can easily guide drivers to available parking spaces. Special parking bays for different user groups, such as disabled people, loading / unloading and bays for electric vehicles, can also be better served by insight into the use of it.
“Nedap’s technology has allowed us to seamlessly design solutions for each customer, despite the complexity and scale of the problems that the customer often requires. Together, we were able to create a unique solution that can connect a huge number of sensors and parking systems. Because of powerful Nedap’s technologies and very good software design, we were really fast in the integration process. We are about to use the Nedap solution in many future projects, especially whenever the customer asks us for a fast and reliable solution.” Lukáš Duffek, CEO at Incinity
Connecting points of interest in the city and the availability of parking
A good example of the collaboration between Nedap and Incinity is the project in the Bulgarian city of Vratsa. The nightmare of all visitors to the city’s sights is to find free parking nearby. In the Bulgarian city of Vratsa, city officials addressed the issue of monitoring parking availability and utilization in the city center and nearby points of interest. The cooperation between Nedap and Incinity has made it possible to create a public portal on which a visitor or citizen can easily find information about parking availability. Thanks to very smooth integration of Nedap’s SENSIT solution, the Invipo platform displays useful information such as prices, opening hours and real-time parking occupancy, including safe navigation to free places.

Smart city projects
In addition to the city of Vratsa, the first projects have also been jointly rolled out in the cities of Izmir (Turkey), Šenkvice (Slovakia) and Esbjerg and Ribe (Denmark). As a result, existing parking spaces are optimally used and vehicles are easily guided to a free parking space. In addition to less traffic congestion, this also results in less search traffic, emissions and noise.
“We are very pleased to enter into a strategic partnership with Incinity. As reliable companies, we can offer cities a total solution for optimizing their existing parking capacity by integrating our accurate and real-time parking data into Incinity’s platform. With this solution, search traffic and CO2 emissions will be reduced. Our proven track record and resilience in combination with Incinity’s reliable and good software has already resulted in the first successful projects. We are looking forward to our cooperation in the future!” Edwin Siemerink, Proposition Manager SENSIT at Nedap
