Battery operated car parking sensors include Geomagnetic and radar sensor detection to provide details via a gateway of the presence of a vehicle on a designated space. The units are low profile ( 30mm high ) and are typically fixed with studs to the car park surface. The batteries are serviceable form the underside of the device via a secure compartment. Battery life is typically circa 5 years depending on the activity above the sensor. Multiple sensors communicate to a gateway which intern pass data to a cloud platform.
We can build a custom dashboard for you similar to the below integrating 2D and 3D maps , sensor status and other local information
LoRaWAN Parking Sensor

Positioning an array of single or double cameras on your parking site , allows us to map your parking site into actual spaces. Each Camera can view up to 100 spots through 105 Degree view , and these can be monitored utilising our cloud platform from Ubidots. Night and day operation yields a 99% accuracy in carparking spot utilisation. Typically the camera needs to be mounted at a height exceeding 3M and this could be on an adjacent building or a dedicated pole. Data is locally processed at the camera head meaning small payloads of data can be send via 4G/5G to the cloud.
Utilising single or dual camera modules with edge processing ,we can measure movement of objects across an invisible datum. This could be monitoring vehicles using a road or entering a car park , or people entering a building. The AI engine can determine vehicle type and via an open API we can report this data in realtime or via dashboards and reports . As processing of objects is done at the edge, there is no storing of images as realtime object recognition engines are matching shapes to the outline in the field of view.
