Get in the Ring joins forces with YES!Delft and the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague to promote economic and technological innovation for cities of the future. We’re looking for startups ready to pilot their solutions in issues related to parking pressure.

 

The metropolitan region Rotterdam The Hague (MRDH) is an urban metropolis comprising 23 municipalities, a population of 2.3 million and employment for 1.2 million. 13.5% of Dutch people work here, representing 15% of the Gross National Product. A major economic center of the Netherlands. Every town and village has an identity of its own but partnerships are forged to strengthen the region’s economy.

THE CHALLENGE

The aim is to link municipalities of The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg with innovative technological solutions directed at relieving parking pressure. The challenge is to find solutions that can help relieve parking pressure by for instance mapping the parking occupancy for (problem areas within) different municipalities, where parking pressure consists of two components:

Parking Capacity

Cities and villages in both municipalities have limited parking capacity, which does not satisfy the local needs. Maping parking capacity within municipalities will help to develop solutions that aim at satisfying parking capacity within the region.

Current Occupancy

Municipalities distinguish between occupation in different periods: morning / afternoon / evening / night. The solution should be able to automatically map parking occupancy as existing solutions are too inaccurate, too expensive or not scalable enough. The solution must be AVG proof.
