To help Riyadh tackle its parking issues, Worldsensing installed 1500 wireless sensors in the Kingdom Tower area and 10 DMS (Dynamic message signs) in strategic locations throughout the city. The sensors used LoRaWAN: a Long Range, Low Power wireless technology used by IoT networks worldwide. Meanwhile the cloud applications suite platform helps municipal authorities to better manage traffic.
The Fastprk system uses electromagnetic sensors to detect the status of each parking space and sends all occupancy information to a central management unit. To deliver the occupancy status of each parking space, Fastprk sensors are connected to the CISCO network which manage the real-time information.
Worldsensing’s innovative system and technology simplifies the maintenance process. The sensors are automatically calibrated in the server through a calibration and detection algorithm based on cutting-edge technologies such as machine-learning. Several years of battery life can be expected with minimal need for street furniture, as wireless repeaters are not required.
