Using IoT tech to improve parking in Milton Keynes
Parking and traffic congestion was causing a headache for Milton Keynes council. But they estimated that at any given time, 7,000 of their 25,000 parking spaces were sitting empty.
Working in conjunction with the Open University, we developed a system where wireless sensors in the parking bays stream data to solar-powered, lamppost-mounted receivers. The data is analysed in the central MK DATA Hub, hosted by BT, which relays real-time information to drivers in the city centre.
