The Canadian university uses Eleven-x’s LoRaWAN-based intelligent parking solutions to provide data and insight on all accessible parking space across the campus.
The University of British Columbia (UBC) and Eleven-x are extending their smart parking collaboration to include all accessible parking spaces campus-wide, as well as spaces located in high-traffic and access areas of the university.
The university is expanding deployment of Eleven-x’s intelligent parking solution, which includes wireless parking sensors, secure network connectivity and data capture that enables real-time monitoring and data analysis of parking space usage.
In addition to monitoring usage for all parking spaces designated for persons with disabilities across their campus, UBC will also track usage in all high-traffic “drop on and drop off” spaces.
The university is looking to address, and ultimately optimise, areas where access to the university is needed. The aim is to manage its finite parking resources to provide the best experience for students, employees, visitors and service partners of the university.
Eleven-x’s parking solution will be used to build out a profile for the university’s parking assets so that evidence-driven decisions can be made on current and future requirements.
“As a university based on research and innovation, we constantly ask how we can use technology to improve people’s lives,” said Brian Jones, director, parking and access services at UBC.
“Eleven-x not only provides a great solution that is well positioned from a technology perspective, but as also from a company perspective. [It supplies] a level of expertise, combined with an inquisitiveness that is essential given we are an institution that prides itself on innovation.”
“The innovative approach UBC is taking to ensure requirements and expectations are met really aligns well with our solution and our vision of how technology can make a positive impact in people’s daily lives”
The solution from Eleven-x will be used to enable a multi-purpose approach to UBC’s parking spaces: with the support of digital signage, the spaces located in high-traffic areas can become flexible spots that can be designated for specific uses at different times, depending on need.
By operating in a flexible manner, the university is seeking to fulfill easy access to the campus for service vehicles, accessible parking and quick-delivery requirements.
“We are very excited to take our collaboration with UBC to another level by expanding the scope to include high-traffic areas in addition to all accessible parking,” added Dan Mathers, president and CEO of Eleven-x.
“The innovative approach UBC is taking to ensure requirements and expectations are met really aligns well with our solution and our vision of how technology can make a positive impact in people’s daily lives.”
