Vehicles challenging the city infrastructure
The city infrastructure’s Tetris-like balancing game is being strongly challenged to ensure ample space for all these vehicles. Now, more than ever, it is essential to maintain an overview in real-time of vacant or occupied parking spaces and to optimize all spaces based on an extensive and detailed collection of behavioral data.
Modern smart parking garages are being overly strained due to a lack of monitoring and public information on alternative parking spaces. This development quickly leads to more public spaces being designed to host vehicles, resulting in overspending on such construction projects while the public’s recreational areas suffer. The result is a faulting, non-optimized, usage of city space, of which the value grows daily.
Smart Parking: An essential component
Smart parking sensors is the key component here, helping companies and municipalities to optimize revenue, plan reconstructions, and understand when new parking space needs to be offered. By placing a parking sensor, such as Sensative’s Puck Radar, it becomes easy to monitor any parking space usage.
The collected information from sensors allows parking space owners to easily report on available or occupied spaces to potential users via digital information boards, apps, or websites. Such reporting is essential for tourism and commerce in a busy city as many visitors daunt the idea of spending too much time painfully searching for parking spaces.
The Puck Radar smart parking sensor
The Puck Radar smart parking sensor is built on open technology and communicates via LoRaWAN, allowing it to be utilized with a range of open parking monitoring systems. It has a range of up to 10 meters while the user will decide the actual search distance. Batteries last up to 10 years and can be replaced in the IP69 version of the housing, resulting in an investment that will outlast future technological developments.
With GPS positioning included, it is easy to get an overview of all parking spaces and their status in the monitoring system. Furthermore, the included temperature sensor can alarm when heat or cold reaches alarming levels in parking spaces.
