With reason Smart City Expo World Congress 2016 held in Barcelona, SEAT, has wished to submit a news related to the smart mobility. This is the SEAT Ateca Smart City Car a variant of the first SUV of the brand with certain abilities until now unknown. In this issue we have installed a number of systems that will find parking with ease in the city.
This innovative technology works in conjunction with a application called Parkfinder, which has been developed by SEAT and CARNET, a company dedicated to urban mobility. Is dedicated to find free parking lots, and sends the data to the platform iCity Barcelona. From there, the driver can configure up to three different modes, in function of what you are looking for at that precise moment.
You can choose between close to home, near the office and a third mode as. The main advantage is that the user will be able to organize their preferences according to distances, prices, and even by the probability of finding the parking quick. Other functions inclidos are ‘Find my car’, to know where you have parked the car; or ‘Last Mile Routing’, to report the travel distance to the final destination.
Fabian Simmer, responsible for Digitization of SEAT, said that “in major european cities around the 30% of drivers that circulates makes looking for parking”. The manager was proud that “the Ateca Smart City Car and the app Parkfinder show us the path to follow to reduce the time that intended by the driver in the search for parking, with the consequent reduction of emissions, noise and traffic congestion in the cities.”
