Banner Engineering shows range of sensing solutions
Banner Engineering develops a whole series of sensing solutions for many different traffic and parking management applications. Products are based on a range of sensing types, including photo-electrics, ultrasound, radar and magneto-resistance.
These are combined with wireless communication modules to produce solutions for: on- and off-street parking; vehicle detection and counting for tolling and free-flow applications; control of dynamic signage, traffic signals and way-finding applications; access and exit control; and vehicle detection at electric vehicle charging stations.
The company’s indoor parking sensor uses ultrasound technology and has a replaceable 3.6V DC D-cell battery. It can be ceiling-mounted to avoid the traditional cost of installing cabling. The light node, also battery-based, flashes green when spaces are available, providing drivers with guidance. It can manage a group of three to six spaces when mounted on the side of in the middle of a corridor. The supervisory system will show a green light so long as a single space is available. This can significantly reduce installation costs while continuing to provide an effective parking guidance solution.
