Interview With Roy van Pamelen, Parksen Urban Development Specialist

What is your background briefly?

As a City Developer for three decades, I always wanted to build towards a better future. That means a future where my children can also live in a healthy and peaceful world.
Luckily I had the chance of working for private and public organizations. Also I have experience working in the construction of fiber optics networks in cities. Within Parksen I bring the knowledge and the experience in creating smart and sustainable cities.

Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?

Yes! As a professional I see possibilities in creating smart and integrated sustainable cities. A platform like Parksen and ParQ really helps.

Give us a one-minute pitch for what you are doing now.

We are developing a green, smart and connected parking platform with smart IoT devices, AI and blockchain technology, and a parking app for vehicle owners and cities all across the globe. We also collect big data with which municipalities and commercial parties can create policies or more.

The platform will make money based on a kickback fee every time a parking session is started from our platform, but will be free-to-use for cities and commercial parking providers.

Making the platform free-to-use for cities and commercial parking providers will help them save a lot on costs for development, hardware and maintenance costs, and gives us an edge while implementing the platform to cities and providers all across the globe.

As we already work with 113 municipalities here in The Netherlands, we are looking to finalize our expansion to 14 EU member states, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Moreover, after our business trip to China, we are happy to see our negotiations to enter 60 Chinese cities moving forward towards their final conclusion, allowing us to start a pilot in Xiamen during the beginning of 2019.
As we grow both here in the EU and outside the continent, we aim to bring a global parking solution into fruition.

Why did you get involved with this Parksen and ParQ?

The ParkQ mission, a Green, Smart and Connected City Platform is the next thing for me. Working from a city development perspective in realizing the mission statement is great fun and rewarding. It also helps that we have a fantastic team.

Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?

Saving time, money and preventing someone getting unhappy of not getting a parking spot in combination with really helping the environment. With IoT gathering big data that will serve as a reliable source for creating policies or more. What is not to like about this idea.

How can people find out more about 1. The Parksen and ParQ 2. you & your work?

Moreover I would suggest going to the All you need to know about PARQ as well as Parksen:
There you can find our executive summary, token economics, whitepaper and all related docs are available for you to read and of course join us by buying our PARQ tokens with 30% discount.

Anything else you’d like to add / we should have asked?

The Green, Smart and Connected City Platform utilizes the IOTA and Ethereum blockchain, smart contracts, IoT devices, artificial intelligence and a real-time parking app.
The Parksen parking app, running in over 113 Dutch cities, allows drivers to find and pay for their parking spaces, showing them the closest one to their destination, saving them money, time and frustration, as well as helping to reduce CO2 emissions.

For those investors who ask, correctly, “how do we make money?” Well, we receive a kickback fee on all parking transactions that were activated by our cloud-based (SAAS) solution, and by distributing smart, low priced IoT devices and a free-to-use platform to commercial parking providers and local, regional and national governments, you can imagine how much we can generate when we disrupt a 100 billion dollar industry.

I’m confident that with our team, a mixture of seasoned professionals and young upcoming people, we can make a difference in realizing a green, smart and connected city.
