To control real-time street parking occupancy

As part of its street parking policy, the city of Mandelieu (French Riviera in France) decided to equip a dozen of parking spaces with short stop bollards to automatically control real-time parking.

The city of Mandelieu selected the short stop bollard system provided by MAGSYS (HIKOB partner) and integrated with the HIKOB system for real-time parking occupancy monitoring.


HIKOB offers high technical skills, integrated products and a complete software interface. We choose HIKOB systems because they fit with our requirements and they are a must have add-on to the technologies we already provide.

This collaboration enabled us to develop new markets. We entered the new business of street parking, developed web applications being HIKOB data feed and strengthen our position in the market as an integrator.
