A Smart Parking Application based on Bosch and IoT Cloud
Reducing the time taken to find a parking space
We will help take the concept of road traffic to the next level with a parking sensor (Bosch PLS) that detects and reports when a parking space is occupied. Thus, the PLS Sensor provides active parking management functions such as search, navigation, and reservation.
Today it is easy to upgrade the solution for parking in the courtyard of residential complexes, Company Parking, City parking – The device can be installed in a matter of minutes and added to the Bosch IoT Suite network, which we have configured for many sensors.
Reducing CO2 emissions.
The parking sensor uses the discretionary LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) protocol for wireless communication and can be easily integrated into any smart city project.
Thus, PLS is suitable for many different use cases. For example, a Solution can use it for managed parking or a place finder application in a city. Thus, drivers will spend less time searching for a parking space, reducing CO2 emissions.
We use Bosch IoT Suite platform
Bosch developed an intelligent parking system whereby the Parking Lot Sensor (PLS) detects and reports parking space occupancy, thus enabling active parking lots management features, such as search, navigation, and reservation.
Our Team connected this sensor to Bosch IoT Suite infrastructure and generated applications with detailed maps of the city’s parking.
from Physical device to Cloud integration
Our Team provides the ability to install PLT sensors on city places. We connect each sensor with a Bosch IoT Suite service account and support it.
We are experienced in installation and understand all the technical parameters for the correct operation of the sensor.
Here you can watch a short video from installation PLT and add it to Cloud integration.
We want to change the old parking rules
In busy urban environments, the average time spent searching for a parking space often takes in excess of 20 minutes. Through guided parking, our team wants to reduce the average search time by 35% with the added benefit of less CO2 emissions.
The collection and enforcement (identify overstays and illegal parking e.g.emergency access zone) to minimize the occurrence of missed parking space rent and high associated costs of manually ensuring compliance with parking regulations.
