There is no generally valid definition of the term "smart city". It is rather a collective term for the concepts that deal with the efficient, social but also sustainable development of processes within the city. Here, digitalisation supports the adaptation of processes. The goal of the smart city should be to integrate efficient, social and sustainable developments in all areas of life.
There are many different approaches to shaping the transformation towards a smart city. Many cities are focusing on the topics of: Mobility and transport, smart connectivity and energy efficiency. Within the topics, there are different focal points, depending on the individual consideration of the city, which approaches offer the most added value for the citizens.
Smart City concepts help cities to meet new and existing requirements in order to offer residents a high quality of life. In addition to the positive effects for the environment and the residents, the city benefits from more efficient processes in various areas, such as the more efficient use of parking spaces or simplified administrative processes.
In April 2023, the parking area of the Söllereckbahn was digitalized with the smart parking system from Peter Park . Since then, operators and visitors to the leisure facility have benefited from the barrier-free system through seamless parking processes, reduced waiting times and ticketless payment.
