is using Intertraffic to highlight its Internet of Things device that aims to monitor parking spot availability. Called ParkingSensor, the product is generally mounted to light poles or buildings and detects parked vehicles in its field view. One sensor is said to capture the availability of 20 parking spots in real time.
The information is then sent to connected apps, car infotainment systems or management tools for efficient last mile navigation. Its patent pending system uses a cloud backend to predict the parking occupancy even for spots that are not directly monitored by evaluating the similarity among parking spots.
Matthias Rudnik, co-founder of Aipark, said: “We also have a mobile app that gives users advise on the easiest parking space to fill the gap between parking and destination. We launched this product to help reduce the 30% of traffic that is caused by drivers trying to find parking spots.”
Torgen Hauschild, the company’s other co-founder added: “You can also find the location of electric vehicle chargers as well a visualisation of nitrogen dioxide levels in the city.”
ParkingSensor’s artificial intelligence conducts the analysis autonomously for full compliance with the data protection regulations.
