NB- IoT Smart Parking sensor

Using our smart parking sensors and an artificial intelligence-based algorithm, we measure parking occupancy with high reliability.

Installed per parking lot

Magnetometer or dual detection (magnetometer and radar) technology

NB-IoT communication

Flush-mounted

Reliability up to over 99%

5+ years lifetime

We monitor the occupancy status of the parking spaces using our flush-mounted Smart Parking Sensors and in the case of magnetometer sensors an artificial intelligence-based algorithm that evaluates the data they send.

Our Smart Parking Sensors are available in 2 versions of detection mechanism.

Magnetometer-based Smart Parking Sensors continuously monitor the magnetic field to detect changes caused by, for example, a vehicle being parked or unparked. Smart Parking Sensors with Magnetometer transmit the measured data to a central sensor management system. Here, an artificial intelligence-based algorithm evaluates the data and determines whether the parking space is occupied or free, by taking into account other environmental and parking space characteristics. This data is then sent to a central management system, from where it can be displayed on any interface (e.g. Parker app, Smart Parking Dashboard or other third-party systems). Artificial intelligence-based evaluation in the sensor management system allows the system to detect the occupancy of individual parking spaces with an outstanding reliability level of over 98% , while relying on historical data and adapting to current environmental conditions through continuous recalibration.

In the case of dual detection Smart Parking Sensors, which include both magnetometer and radar, the measurement is done by a combination of the two detection mechanisms. If the sensor detects a significant change during the primary magnetic measurement, a second measurement is taken by the radar sensor to determine the occupancy status of the parking space. Dual-detection Smart Parking Sensors can detect on their own whether a space is occupied or unoccupied, so no sensor management system is required. The occupancy data is sent directly from the sensors to a system defined by the customer. A custom protocol allows the clients to parameterise the sensors individually, if required, so that their operation can be customised. The Smart Parking Sensors, with both magnetometer and radar, are able to determine the occupancy of a parking space with an extraordinary reliability of over 99%, thanks to the dual detection mechanism and their complementary operation, even without any additional intelligence.

Regardless of the detection mechanism, Smart Parking Sensors communicate over the existing mobile network infrastructure, the NB-IoT network, so no additional network elements (such as base stations and repeaters) need to be installed. NB-IoT communication ensures a long lifetime of Smart Parking Sensors, independent of the detection mechanism, with an average lifetime of more than 5 years, without the need to provide any other external power source.

Thanks to the unique pavement design of the Smart Parking Sensors, an external sleeve is built into the pavement during installation, independent of the detection mechanism, and the Smart Parking Sensors are then placed in these sleeves using a special technique. This method allows easy replacement of the Smart Parking Sensors in the event of failure or depletion, while also providing protection against vandalism.
