Using this system helps to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions in the urban environment, reduce the energy consumption for the driver, improves the level of car rotations around the streets and improves the efficiency of the spaces. A definite win-win situation for the driver and local authority.
A sensor is placed in every parking space which identifies a parked car. This activates in real time a variable message sign which will indicates to the driver where the vacant spaces are.
An additional tool to help with the flow of traffic in public places is the control series bollard which stands approximately 1.5meters high. This helps to monitor non-metered bays such as a loading bay in a shopping centre, a drop-off zone at an airport or station, or a disabled parking bay. With clear, easy to read LED’s showing the parking status, the time can be monitored – the sensor is first triggered and shows green and as the time expires will go to red. If the parking time is exceed, this will alert the CEO via a wireless communication that a traffic violation has occurred and enforcement of the vehicle can then take place.
