Let’s start with some facts: according to a 2017 UK study titled “Tackling Pollution and Congestion” by Professor David Begg and Claire Haigh, congestion has been steadily rising in all major UK cities. When congestion occurs, tailpipe emissions are four times higher than when the traffic flows smoothly. Congestion leads to slower driving speeds, which has been tied to an increase of toxic emissions and health issues. Yeah, it’s getting out of hand.
We believe that it has come this far thanks to a lack of cooperation and coordination between municipalities, the usage of outdated, harmful equipment and, last but not least, bureaucratic delays that stand in the way of innovation. Meanwhile, cities and citizens alike suffer economically, emotionally and physically.
Thankfully, there is no reason to despair, as more and more sustainable, smart solutions are being built every day. But how efficient are these singular methods going to be? Parksen aims to connect the solutions by creating a universal platform that can be integrated by any city, at any time.
By strategically placing smart IoT devices and sensors across the city and connecting them to the Parksen dashboard, municipalities and companies can keep a watchful eye on local congestion and pollution.
The gathered data paints a very vivid picture, which can then be used to implement structural changes. Is there one particular intersection responsible for the bulk of your city’s congestion? Perhaps it’s time to make some changes.
Parksen as an app and as a platform will revolutionize urban infrastructure development, but to do so proficiently we will need all the help we can get. If you think that you would benefit from Parksen, please check out the whitepaper for more in-depth information on our green solutions.
A greener, smarter and more connected city starts with you, so let’s get to it!
