A homegrown product development and technology company, iRAM Technologies has won three multi-million-dollar projects for developing ‘On and Off-Street Smart Parking Solutions’ for Bhubaneswar, Kanpur and Nasik smart cities. iRAM has won these projects in partnerships with leading conglomerates in the Smart City Space. iRAM has the most advanced solutions based on Internet of Things (IoT).
iRAM will install their IoT architecture based smart parking technology that includes sensors, parking gateways, Parking Management & Guidance software, Mobile Point of sale solution and citizen application at 87 sites in Bhubaneshwar, 42 sites in Kanpur and 33 parking sites in Nasik respectively. The projects should be deployed over the next six months.
With this deployment, the respective smart cities will be able to provide citizens convenience to find and reserve parking even before stepping out of their homes or offices. Citizens will be charged appropriately through approved Mobile Point of sale systems providing multiple options of credit card/ debit card/pre-paid card/wallet-based payments. IRAM envisages 80 per cent cashless payment over next two to three years’ in parking domain which is otherwise pre-dominantly a cash transaction.

iRAM’s Smart Parking Solutions can be deployed on-street, off-street and covered parking spaces. The Smart Parking System efficiently optimizes the usage of the available parking space, enhancing the functioning of streets in the city and ensures appropriate parking fees, avoiding payment pilferages through digital payments aligned to government’s vision of cashless payments. Using a mobile application, it allows users a great convenience to find available parking spaces, reserve and pay online.
