ParkHere is launching a complete software and hardware solution from a single source to administer car park management. The core product, an Intertraffic Innovation Award finalist, is a sensor embedded in the parking area that generates an impulse in the installed energy-harvesting module when a car drives over it.
The resulting energy is sufficient to transmit the information via mobile phone network to the server. The data is then analysed and made available to customers via a web app or dashboards.
It is no longer necessary to draw a ticket because payment then runs on a smartphone. Electronic paper signs and self-powered parking hangers supplement ParkHere’s portfolio. The self-powered signs allow dynamic parking space reservation. The parking hanger physically blocks the parking lot and is controlled by the app or dashboard.
