In cooperation with the City and Commune Office of Piaseczno, Emitel expanded the monitoring system for parking spaces in Piaseczno. This is the next stage of the project, under which more than 300 parking spaces are already available, monitored with the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The project was awarded in the Smart City Poland Award 2022 competition during the Smart City Expo Poland event held in Łódź in October.

The scope of works carried out by Emitel in Piaseczno included the launch of 202 parking sensors in three city car parks – Kościelna, Puławska and Zgoda, and the installation of smart information boards. As part of cooperation with the City of Piaseczno, Emitel also launched an IT system for project management. It has also been integrated with the already operating parking sensors at the Zgoda city car park, implemented in the first stage of the project. In total, monitoring is available in Piaseczno for 316 parking spaces. These sensors use two systems to detect the vehicle in the parking space – radar and magnetic.

The free parking space monitoring system is based on the LoRaWAN telecommunications network, which provides low-power long-range wireless communication (LPWAN). The sensors, using the LoRaWAN protocol, send current information about the occupancy of parking spaces to the Emitel wireless network devices, then the data is transferred to the system operated by the City of Piaseczno.

– Cooperation with Emitel makes the Piaseczno Commune a real Smart City. Thanks to the use of technology, we increase the efficiency and interactivity of urban infrastructure – says Daniel Putkiewicz, Mayor of Piaseczno City and Commune. – Our ambition is to make our city more and more friendly to residents and to be able to fully use its potential – adds Daniel Putkiewicz.

Emitel’s cooperation with the City of Piaseczno won the recognition of the jury of the competition during the Smart City Expo Poland held on October 25-26 in Łódź. For the implementation of Smart City solutions in the Piaseczno Commune, Emitel received the 1st Prize in the Smart City Poland Award 2022 competition in the “Urban infrastructure” category.

Emitel has extensive experience in the development of Smart Cities solutions. As one of the first companies, it started the implementation of innovative projects in cooperation with local governments. As part of the LoRaWAN network provided by the Company, local governments can implement solutions that improve the standard of living of residents, help fight the problem of environmental pollution and support the management of urban resources.

– This is not the first cooperation between Emitel and the City of Piaseczno as part of the implementation of Smart City solutions. Openness to innovations on the part of the city authorities makes Piaseczno today a place that has earned the name of a Smart City and is one of the leaders in this field in Poland. Implementation of the Smart Cities concept can bring measurable benefits to residents, public administration units and private enterprises. We are extremely pleased that Emitel’s solutions significantly contribute to the development of smart cities in Poland – said Maciej Staszak, Vice-President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.
