Narrow Band Parking Sensor (NBPS) is a fully autonomous wireless parking sensor. Its compact form factor and ease of deployment make it a versatile solution for the cities of tomorrow. The patented dual magnetometer technology enables reliable and accurate vehicle detection. Utilizing a Narrow Band Cellular network, the sensor is capable of transmitting parking data directly to the Internet, without a need for any gateways or hubs. That, in turn, lowers the total cost of ownership.
An onboard battery, backed by intelligent power management system, guarantees a long operational lifetime, with minimal maintenance. Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy communication module makes the system easily expandable and serviceable. As with most solutions, each parking spot is equipped with a sensor tasked with detecting vehicles in that spot. Traditionally, magnetic-based parking sensors relied on disturbances in the natural magnetic field caused by parked vehicles. However, some vehicles create stronger disturbances, which can cause false detections on nearby parking spots. To cope with that issue, NBPS uses patented dual magnetometer measurement system which eliminates a majority of false positive or false negative detections. Such decrease in number of false detections yields up to 98% detection rate, regardless of any possible obstructions, such as dirt, snow or debris.
