Reduced CO2 emissions

CO2 emissions – percentage caused by traffic

As seen in the diagram road transport contributes 76% of the CO2 emissions related to transportation.

Case study: Reduction in CO2 emission and fuel consumption

By using an intelligent bay monitoring system, the motorist can follow the parking guidance signs that direct him to the nearest available parking space and thus reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emission.

 

Example 1: Reduction in CO2 emission

CO2 emissions for a mid-size car 180g CO2 / km
Car Park 500 spaces
Turnover of the car park: 2 x per day and space 500 x 2 = 1000 parking events
Travel distance for finding a free space Reduced from 800 to 200m by parking guidance
Total distance reduced per parking event 600m or 0.6km
Reduced CO2 emission per day 0.6 x 180 x 1000 =  108kg
Reduced CO2 emission per year 108 x 365 = 39.4t CO2

 

Example 2: Reduction in fuel consumption

Fuel consumption in cities for a mid-size car 7 l/100 km
Car park 500 spaces
Turnover of the car park: 2 x per day and space 500 x 2  = 1000 parking events
Travel distance for finding a free space Reduced from 800 to 200m by parking guidance
Total distance reduced per parking event 600m or 0.6km
Fuel savings per parking event 0.042 l
Cost of fuel per liter 1.50€
Cost savings per parking event 6.3 cents
Cost savings per day (1000 parking events) 63€
Cost savings per year 22.995€
