Smart City trial in Devonport
The Devonport Smart City Trial aims to collect and review data to understand how people move between different forms of transport. Two 'Smart Poles' have been installed at Devonport Wharf car park, the poles include two electric vehicle chargers as well as real time environmental data monitoring, parking sensors, Wi-Fi stations and adaptive lighting.
Devonport Wharf was chosen to be part of the Smart City trial because it combines various modes of transport (short-term parking, long-term parking, ferries, buses, walking and cycling) with varying patronage throughout the day, including commuters, visitors, and locals.
The free to use charging stations are provided by ChargeNet, they are standard AC and will provide drivers with a top-up charge.
Normal parking fees apply.
