In 2012 SCANaCAR was awarded for the first time as the catogory winner of the Intertraffic Innovation Award for Parking. This prestigious title has been awarded for the introduction of the ScanScooter. The ScanScooter is now in use for parking enforcement by Cition in Amsterdam and in the cities of Schiedam (NL) and Strasbourg (FR).

According to the jury: "a worthy winner enabling greater efficiency in parking enforcement and enhanced safety for enforcement personnel, affording easier access and real-time connection with central databases, and reflecting current developments in enforcement regulation”.

In 2014 SCANaCAR again won the Intertraffic Innovation Award. This time it's for new technologies built into the ScanAuto that open the possibility to enforce on illegal parking (e.g. in disabled parking places or loading & unloading places). Since the ScanAuto can now also distinguish empty parking places, data on occupancy rates are collected and drivers can be informed. This will decrease search traffic for on street parking places and along with that save on time, energy and pollution.
