RTA’s Smart Parking
The smart parking project is launched by RTA and implemented by Energy International Corporation and Nedap, the leading specialist in vehicle detection technology. Smart technology is used in this innovative parking system. There are 3,035 parking spots that are monitored by a central control system. 2,030 sensors and 70 digital cameras are installed overhead to detect vacant slots and instantly transmit information to the central system for display. You can check the electronic sign boards at the parking slots. Also, you can find them through RTA’s mobile app. Besides giving the real-time occupancy information, the number of available parking spaces are displayed in both Arabic and English on dynamic message signboards.
Benefits of Smart Parking
- It’s a hassle-free process
- Time saving: It saves about 20-30% of your time that would have spent on parking spots.
- Decreases traffic congestion and road accidents
- Improves air quality: RTA controls the carbon emissions generated while looking for a parking system.

In fact, the RTA’s smart system is tailored to the needs of road users to use technological means for effective and time saving parking. This remarkable parking service is aligned to RTA’s goal of Smart Dubai and People’s Happiness.
