Communithings has developed Parkally, an IoT platform that guides motorists to free parking spaces. Sensors installed on each parking space enable the mobile app to display the availability of parking for an entire district or city in real time on a digital map.

Communithings is aimed at urban communities wishing to facilitate access to their city centres (shops, public services etc) and streamline traffic by limiting the time it takes to find a parking space. It also targets private car park contractors who wish to fill more free spaces and increase revenue.  

As part of a global management system, the app gives operators real-time visibility of congestion, access to statistical dashboards and alerts in case of incidents (illegal parking, exceeding the authorised time limit).  

Types of support

Communithings took part in the first season of Orange Fab Belgium & Luxembourg in 2017.
