Upgrade your outdoor carpark with Carlo Gavazzi
Controls and Automation specialist, Carlo Gavazzi has enhanced their popular Car Park Guidance range by offering either a flush mounting wireless sensor or a camera-based solution for detecting cars in open car parks.
The first option uses a rugged magnetic sensor mounted in the ground of each parking bay, entirely unobtrusive to the user. Two different technologies are available to transmit the data, the first is based upon the long-range wireless protocol LoRaWAN®, the other uses narrow band (NB-IoT) technology. Each sensor uses minimum power from its in-built lithium battery which can last up to 10 years.
The second option uses camera-based technology to monitor multiple bays, each IP camera can detect on average of up to 40 bays and the centralised hub can manage up to 8 cameras. Only the numerical occupancy data is collected and relayed to the car park system, therefore no sensitive data can be accessed; making it fully compliant with GDPR.
Both systems require a centralised hub to collect the data before it is transmitted to the Car Park control system where the information is collated and used by the system to display the precise information on signage throughout the car park, allowing the user to easily find standard spaces, disabled spaces and EV charge point locations.
