News came that smart parking projects are to be built in 7 road sections in downtown Xianning from late October. In Jan, 2019, 1844 parking spaces will be open to citizens, which aim to relieve citizens’ trouble in parking cars in downtown areas.
On Oct 19th, the Xianning City Development Parking Lot Investment Operation and Management Co., Ltd. affiliated to the Xianning City Development Group Co., Ltd. has completed the bid inviting work of the smart road parking system project of Xianning (the first stage).

The first stage project will install the software and hardware in the call center, the SLCD (splice liquid crystal display) in the command center, and other pertinent equipments in the computer room of the headquarters, as well as other advanced equipments, like charging signage, patrolled inspection PDA, and geomagnetic sensors, implementing and laying the groundwork for parking spaces, operator’s route and service, software services of computing platform, etc.
