Each parking space is equipped with a battery powered occupancy sensor that can detect the absence, arrival, presence, and departure of a vehicle. The sensors are self provisioning, with a unique MAC address assigned to each unit that is associated with its serial number. With low-power design, the units can run up to 5 years and require no external wiring to install.
When an occupancy sensor detects vehicle activity, its embedded LoRa transceiver sends a short message packet containing the change in status to any wireless Internet gateway within its range. The gateway can be part of a private LoRa network or a node in a public LoRaWAN service provider.
The gateway(s) forward the packets to PNI’s Parking Cloud Service application that can reside either on a Cloud-based or dedicated server. This turnkey parking management solution uses the sensors’ messages to keep track of open and occupied spaces. It can present parking events on a web interface, and provide parking data to third-party applications that generate billing information, and advertise available parking spaces to motorists via their smartphones or other wireless devices. It can also be customized to support a wider range of specialized services.
The LoRaWAN protocol support for two-way communication capabilities allows the parking manager to query the sensors.
