Smart Parking

The IoT technology enables the detection of parking spots availability indoor and outdoor.

Smart Parking

The challenge

Driving around looking for an available parking spot:

  • Wastes fuel
  • Increases pollution
  • Produces traffic-jams
  • Causes anxiety

By 2050 66% of world population live in urban areas. It requires new mobility plans of metropolises.

IoT Solution for Parking

Smart Parking solution can reduce

  • Traffic volume: -8%
  • Gas emissions: -40%
  • Km. travelled: -30%
  • Time spent: -43%

Looking for a parking spot

  • Ten minutes searching for car parking several times
    daily means more than 240 hours per year, and an
    average of 700 complete days in your life.

Applications of IoT technology for Parking

There are large numbers of vehicles that need to be positioned appropriately to avoid congestion. In such situations, a Parking Guided System provides drivers with directions and accuracy in terms of parking their vehicles.

  • Improves reputation of being a greener city/facility
  • Improves urban mobility and city planning

Smart Parking Products

Libelium has integrated radar technology in detecting the availability of parking spaces aiming to meet the growing demand for greater precision of smart parking devices.

The new smart parking node improves detection and stability performance thanks to a radar sensor that allows precise detection (99%) of vehicles parked over the device. When the device notices a change in the parking lot status, it sends the data to the cloud through the LoRaWAN network.

Features

Radar technology offers improved performance compared to devices equipped with magnetic or infrared detection.

Moreover, radar parking devices are not vulnerable to magnetic interference nor do they give false positives for vehicles parked near or in double rows.

Their performance is more consistent in any condition of luminosity, more stable in case of long-stay parking and they are not affected by the proximity of traffic movements such as passing a bus or heavy trucks.

Additionally, the maintenance of radar parking sensors is much easier as they are not affected by dirt, dust, rain or oil spills.

Radar detection system

Wireless communication protocol

  • Available for Europe, US, Latam, Australia and Asia Pacific.
  • Nodes provisioning in the LoRaWAN network server at any one time including default time settings and unique LoRaWAN identifyers and keys.
  • Configuration via Smart Devices App (Java desktop application)

Triple installation option:

  • Easy configuration
  • Waterproof enclosure
  • Long lifetime low power
