"Precise parking of scooters will be tested in Prague"

In Prague, a one-year EU-funded project managed by ParkedByMe consortium aims to test a new parking solution for shared bikes, electric bikes, and scooters. Utilizing the SparkPark digital system with Bluetooth sensors, the project seeks to expand parking spaces, improve efficiency, and reduce street disorder caused by poorly parked vehicles. Pilot projects in Prague and Madrid will compare the new system with GPS sensors, addressing concerns about traffic, safety, and aesthetics in urban areas.

"Precise Micromobility Parking With Innovative Bluetooth Sensors"

“ParkedByMe is not just a project; it’s a commitment to revolutionize the way we park micromobility vehicles in urban  areas. The parking infrastructure is a tool for the cities to reduce pollution, by making fundaments for the micromobility to grow; and, at the same time, keep all users of public areas safe.” – CEO, Igor Pancevski, SparkPark

"How to solve the parking chaos for the electric scooters"

"Igor was sitting in a café with a friend when he noticed that the electric scooters were strewn around the street outside. Together they came up with a solution that will ensure that the bikes have to be parked within a given area, and SINTEF is part of the team working to realize the idea."


"New invention can prevent electric scooters from being thrown everywhere"

A new invention called Happy City aims to solve the problem of haphazardly parked electric scooters in cities. Developed by SparkPark, it uses base stations in parking spaces to ensure scooters are parked correctly before rides can end.
