Counting on Ramps

With growing parking areas it takes longer to find one of the last vacant parking spaces in a car park or an underground parking.

Searching the last vacant parking space does not only take time, it is annoying, consumes energy and due to the exhaust fumes the breathing air degrades in car parks and underground parkings.

With MagSense® MobiliSis® offers individual parking space detection which ensures direct guidance to vacant spaces. Offer your customers a direct and, thus, optimum guidance to the vacant parking spaces.

Exact Counting on Ramps and at Cross-sections of Car Parks and Underground Parking

Inexact counting on ramps and at cross-sections in car parks and underground parking facilities is a thing of the past. The MagSense® magnetic field sensors system ensures exact counting along with simplest installation.

Mobilisis® has expanded its portfolio concerning the detection of single parking spaces by the MagSense® 3DTC® traffic counter. MagSense 3DTC is perfectly suitable to count vehi-cles on ramps and at cross-sections of car parks and underground parking facilities. 70 measurements per seconds even allow to measure speeds of up to 220 km/h in outdoor areas.

The technologies used so far like ultrasonic sound and light barriers have a high and there-fore unacceptable error rate due to passing pedestrians, baggage carts (airport), dirt, vibrations, wind etc.. None of these influences play a role regarding detection with MagSense®. The system runs absolutely stable at minimum maintenance effort.


Its functioning is downright simple and brilliant. MagSense® detects the passing vehicles through the carriageway. Since the sensors only react to ferromagnetic material, the above-mentioned influences do not affect its extremely high accuracy of detection. Above all, the sensitiveness of the sensors can be modified after their installation. This allows the later adjustment to newer generations of vehicles as well as the detection of both low-magnetic vehicles and vehicles of high ground clearance (e.g. SUVs). Especially those ve-hicles pose more and more problems even today – e.g. for inductive loops at gates. Detection by MagSense® is accurate, if measured through reinforced-concrete floors as well as steel floors.


Equally simple is the installation of the sensor system. The sensors can either be mounted directly to the ceiling or they are laid in pre-installed empty conduits. This kind of installation bears the advantage that the basic structures of the building, in particularly the carriageway, will not be damaged. At the lowest floor the sensors are laid in narrow, tra-versable cable conduits or below road stones.


The data can be transferred directly to a system for parking management as well as directly on dynamic signs. The following means of communication are available:

  • RS232
  • RS485
  • Ethernet
  • CAN oder
  • GSM

The data transmission via GSM has this additional advantage that it leads to significantly reduced installation costs by eliminating costly data wiring of the system is no longer required.

Buy data not sensors

We install a fully operating vehicle detection system using MagSense® sensors which meets your requirements. Via internet (24/7) the data acquired by the sensors (raw data) are directly transmitted to our computing centre, processed and evaluated there. Outsourcing the hardware reduces the costs; at the same time our staff ensures optimum data management and software maintenance.

Thus, the incurring costs are reduced to a monthly fee for the purchase of the acquired and evaluated data. If requested, we can even incorporate those in your website so that you can inform your customers optimally on currently vacant parking spaces, for example.

We will be happy to meet and jointly develop the optimum solution for you and your company. If our business model is interesting for you, please use our contact form to arrange an informative meeting.
