The city of Delray Beach in Florida is set to gain smart parking technology from a new partnership between One Parking, Parking Logix and eleven-x. 

Under the project, the companies will use  Parking Logix's OpenSpace technology and eleven-x's eXactpark system to digitize 16 surface lots and 1,200 on-street parking spaces, which they said would “radically transform” parking in the city.

Sensors will be placed on parking spots, relaying real-time availability data to the city’s website, which drivers can access to check parking space availability.

“The goal of the One Parking initiative is to alleviate the common complaint of insufficient parking…by providing real-time parking data at drivers’ fingertips,” the partners said. 

Data gathered by the sensors is accessible via the Logix on Cloud interface, and can also be used by LED signage, Parking Logix’s Parker Mobile app and third-party websites and apps. 

“By digitizing surface lots and on-street parking spaces, we're not just improving efficiency; we're enhancing the overall parking experience for residents and visitors alike,” said Todd Tucker, Parking Logix’s president. “This collaboration underscores our dedication to creating smarter, more connected cities through technology."

The data gathered will also be used to identify and monitor longer-term traffic and parking trends to inform future city planning.

“We are excited to help the city of Delray Beach deliver the best parking experience for their community by delivering the most accurate, ‘true’ occupancy monitoring of their on-street spaces,” said Dan Mathers, eleven-x CEO. “Our platform will help get drivers into spaces quicker, while also providing the city with 24/7/365 data and insights to help deliver better programs and services.”
