ParkedByMe – Never leave your e-bike parked wrong!

The ParkedByMe project, in collaboration with FACTUAL and SparkPark, has kicked off.

ParkedByMe Precise Parking

This year, we will boost and test the SparkPark’s technology of Bluetooth sensors to deliver centimeter-precise parking for micromobility vehicles. Thanks to this project, Prague and Madrid will benefit from expanding parking spaces up to 12 meters wide, having an analysis of the parking traffic of shared bicycles, e-scooters and e-bikes, and, therefore, they will be able to provide efficient and smart parking zones for micromobility vehicles. We are ona mission to revolutionize micromobility parking solutions!
