Libelium Improves Smart Parking Sensors and Gains Key Global Markets

By Ken Briodagh January 31, 2018

In a recent announcement, Libelium has released a new Smart Parking Sensor Node, designed to detect available parking spots and now able to deliver 99 percent accuracy, according to the release.

This new parking node features two different detection systems, includes dual wireless communication protocols (Sigfox and LoRaWAN), and is able to be installed over or under the road.

The Smart Parking device runs on a magnetic detection system than can be supported with a cloud software system that evaluates the received signal strength indication (RSSI). As an example, if a car is parked on a spot, the system detects it by the variation of the magnetic field and by the weaker signal’s received power. This dual sensing system reportedly can provide up to 99 percent accuracy under optimal conditions.

The new sensor allows twofold installation deployments because it can be screwed on the surface or installed under the ground, which can allow for snowplow operation in winter or to avoid theft.

The new sensor system, certified with CE and FCC, is fully compatible with LPWAN radio technologies to enable long range and low power consumption and it can be connected with both radios for the European 868 MHz band and for the 900-930 MHz band in the US and Canada. Sigfox Parking versions for LATAM, Australia and Asia Pacific are now available for 915MHz and 923MHz bands.

The Smart Parking device comes pre programmed from the factory so anyone can configure it in a few seconds with the Libelium Smart Devices App. Once the nodes have been installed, the Remote Setup System allows the user to remain in control and reconfigure all the parameters easily from the Cloud. The Smart Parking nodes have an expected lifetime up to ten years uninterrupted operation, based on the high capacity batteries and low consumption software algorithms.
