Smart parking gets smarter

The company has also added coverage for Latin America, Australia and Asia-Pacific 

The sensors work on a magnetic detection system and can sit above or below the surface

Libelium has introduced an upgraded version of its smart parking sensor node able to detect available parking slots. It has also extended coverage to three more regions: Australia, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.


The new parking node features two different detection systems which the Spanish-based IoT technology provider claims is able to deliver 99 per cent accuracy.


The smart parking device runs on a magnetic detection system than can be supported with a cloud software system that evaluates the received signal strength indication (RSSI) and fully compatible with LPWAN radio technologies, LoRaWAN and Sigfox.


The new sensor system, certified with CE and FCC, is equipped with IP68-rated waterproof and a robust enclosure that allows it to be either screwed on the surface or installed underground.


According to Libelium, this feature is required on projects where snowploughs operate in winter or to avoid theft. In both cases, the node can be easily reset by passing the powerful magnet provided over the device.


The list of countries the new smart parking Sigfox version covers are: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand.


The device comes pre-programmed from the factory so can be configured in a few seconds with the Libelium smart devices, even by those without programming skills.


Once the nodes have been installed, a remote set-up system allows the user to remain in control and reconfigure all the parameters easily from the cloud.


The nodes have an expected lifetime up to 10 years uninterrupted operation, based on the high capacity batteries and low consumption software algorithms.
