India-based Jaan Innovations is using Intertraffic to present a cost-effective smart parking management system that combines an Internet of Things platform with image processing technology. Called Hawkeye, the solution can be utilised as a hardware platform, software platform and mobile application for IOS and Android devices.
The gateway is designed with the intention of interfacing with industry standard sensors such as IR, ultrasonic and magnetic sensors and other accessories such as Boom Barriers, LED displays and Radio-frequency identification readers. In addition, the cameras aim to determine vehicle presence or absence. A single camera, according to Jaan Innovations, can process image of parking slots with multiple cars parked.
Ajay Masur, co-founder and director at Jaan Innovations, said: “We use less than $50 cameras for number plate sensing. The mobile app can be downloaded, allowing users to choose city and slot. The back-end technology takes care of the rest.
The cloud-based software platform offers features to the parking operator from the configuration of parking lot area to parking slot level decisions such as if a slot to be assigned for a two/four-wheeler and standard or premium vehicle.
“Car park operators get visibility of parking slots through a dashboard that shows cars that are parked,” Masur added.
