The vehicle detection sensors monitor parking space availability, including mobility bays
Parking management technology developer Smart Parking has deployed its Internet of Things-based solution in the city of Casey in Australia.
The solution includes 904 of Smart Parking’s vehicle detection sensors which are used to monitor parking space availability, including mobility bays. Information collected from the sensors is then displayed on variable message signs at the car parks entrances, with direction indicators for drivers.
SmartSpot Gateways will connect to a mobile network and act as the central communication unit that collects the data via wireless communication and transmits it to the SmartCloud parking services system.
Smart Parking’s analytics tool and dashboard, SmartRep, will provide a real-time view of how the smart car park and its infrastructure is being used. This enables the city to monitor parking facilities and use resources more efficiently to allow the city to plan more effectively creating an easier and happier parking experience for visitors.
Smart Parking national sales manager Ben Williams said: “Smart Parking are delighted to be working with the ity of Casey, to provide our leading edge technology. Our parking solution will make it easier for Casey residents and visitors to locate a parking space and will contribute to the positive experience of visiting the Bunjil Place precinct.”
City of Casey Strategic Mayor Sam Aziz said the introduction of smart parking technology in the Bunjil Place precinct is an exciting step forward for Casey and will provide significant benefits to the community.
“Not only will the technology assist visitors to our Bunjil Place precinct in finding a suitable parking space, but the use of reporting data will also allow us to analyse individual parking bay usage, traffic flows and peak usage periods”, said the Mayor.
“Integrating this technology will provide us with significant future opportunities to continue on our journey in becoming a smart city”.
This is another step towards Smart Parking’s mission to bring IoT parking technology to communities across Australia. Earlier this year, Joondalup worked with Smart Parking to bring smart parks to its city.
