Smart Parking: State capital Wiesbaden contributes to climate protection


Wireless magnetic field sensors from MSR-Traffic monitor almost 500 outdoor parking spaces and thus promote smart parking.


Using the parking area efficiently and reducing the time to find a parking space in order to minimize traffic and air pollution - these are some of the goals the state capital Wiesbaden is pursuing with the project. On behalf of the city, the municipal mobility service provider ESWE Verkehr is working to achieve these goals as part of the DIGI-P (Digitisation of Parking) funding project. The project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport in the funding guideline "Digitisation of municipal transport systems" with a grant of up to € 547,899.

In addition to numerous other climate protection measures, various parking areas were equipped with parking sensors from MSR-Traffic from Lower Bavaria for the automatic digital recording of the parking space occupancy.

In the future, real-time occupancy data will be generated for the P+R car parks at the main railway station (section between Salzbachstraße and Gartenfeldstraße) and Moltkering, as well as the street-side car parks on Friedrich-Ebert-Allee.




Who uses the real-time occupancy data?


The data is transferred to the urban traffic control system and further to the Mobility Data Marketplace (MDM) - the national access point in Germany. The information can then be utilized via the MDM by navigation services, for example. In addition, the data will be available to parking users directly online on a city website. The information gained about parking behaviour or the utilization of parking spaces will ultimately be used for better traffic control in Wiesbaden.

Magneto magnetic field sensor is a wireless parking sensor with the highest durability and reliability compared to other devices. It detects the parking space occupancy and also records the time how long the parking bay was occupied by a vehicle.

The vehicle detection system responds immediately and reliably to any change in parking usage. Therefore, it is suitable for outdoor parking and on-street applications. Furthermore, it helps to optimize parking space management.








  • Wireless parking sensor
  • Long lifetime (up to 10 years)
  • High reliability (98% accuracy)
  • Detects the time how long the parking space was occupied by a vehicle


The sensor is suitable for any outdoor parking space and can be installed in the middle of the parking space or on the side of the curb or sidewalk.


From the idea to the turnkey parking guidance system. 

MSR-Traffic  offers innovative sensor technology and intelligent parking guidance systems that enable counting and single space detection of vehicles indoors  and outdoors.  Drivers are quickly guided to the next available parking space via dynamic traffic control technology or via app. With  magnetic field sensorscamerasultrasonic sensors and state-of-the-art   LED displays,  the company offers innovative products and solutions for finding and monitoring parking spaces. In addition to the development, production and sales of intelligent parking guidance systems, MSR-Traffic also supports the planning and installation on site.
