BOSCH LoRaWAN® Parking Sensor Parking Lot PLS 868 MHz IP67
The LoRaWAN® Parking Lot PLS is a sensor for Smart Parking and Smart City applications. The sensor is battery powered and designed for surface mounting. Both screw and adhesive mounting is possible. The parking sensor detects and reports the occupancy of individual parking spaces / parking lots and thus enables active parking space management. The simple retrofit solution for the monitoring of parking spaces can be installed in a few minutes.
Drivers in large cities spend on average more than 40 hours a year behind the wheel alone to find parking spaces. Around 30 % of inner-city traffic and the associated CO2 emissions are accounted for by the search for parking space alone. However, the question of where the next available parking space is has been answered much faster than before with digital solutions for some time now.
This time saving is made possible by modern Internet-of-Things technologies. Sensors are integrated into a networked overall mobility solution via LoRaWAN® radio technology (Long Range Wide Area Network). The radio technology makes it possible to collect data from sensors over a large radius via a gateway and send it to intelligent traffic control systems. The information about the occupancy status of the parking lot ends up in the back end of the mobility system, where it is processed and made available to the end users via navigation system, smartphone app or website. In this way, motorists can navigate to the nearest available parking space. The back-end system can also store the type of parking space involved, i.e. "normal" surface parking or special parking space (women's, family or disabled parking, e-charging station).
The solution is also suitable for monitoring escape routes (e.g. fire department access roads) or e-charging stations.
The parking sensor contains two independent sensor elements, a magnetometer to detect changes in the magnetic field of the environment and a RADAR sensor to measure the reflectivity of the object above the sensor.
