Company information

The Smart Parking Guidance, monitoring & mobile payment solution for cars & bikes

Abel Sensors develops and delivers smart wireless sensors for a number of different markets. We were founded in 2009 in the city of Delft in the Netherlands.

Global changes in economies, population and climate result in a demand for more efficiency and more sustainability. At the same time, technological advances make it possible to develop technical solutions increasingly more applications. Cities are facing challenges in terms of infrastructure, traffic, energy use, pollution and safety while resources are increasingly scarce. The agricultural sector also faces challenges in terms of water, land use and more scarce resources. Advanced Internet-of-Things solutions and developments in sensor technology form the backbone of Smart Everything to monitor and improve efficiency and sustainability.

"We measure, gather and enrich data into reliable and valueable information that can be integrate in core activities and processes of organisations and governments."

"Our mission is to supply products and services that make businesses, governments and live of people more efficient and more sustainable."

Product information

Smart Parking

Vehicle Guidance System

Abel's smart parking solution is a hybrid system for the monitoring of cars and bicycles in parking facilities. The system shows the available places and monitors how long cars and bicycles have been parked.

For Drivers

  • Find a free spot
  • Find back your car
  • See when a carpark is full

For Carpark Owners

  • Realtime insights
  • Higher occupancy
  • Data about occupancy and parking duration
  • One system for cars and bikes
  • Camera’s can also be used for security
  • Identify cars parked too long or incorrectly
  • More efficient use of investment

Car Detection System

The system works with optical sensors. These optical sensors are mounted on the ceiling, or they are mounted on a mast when the system is used outdoors. With signposts, LED lighting and apps it can be indicated to drivers where the free spots are. The system can be installed in new parkings and in existing parks.image of a car and a bike

  • Highly accurate (optical) sensors
  • Reference matrix signs
  • LEDs for section occupancy
  • Outdoor signs
  • Multiple purpose camera's for cars, bicycles and security
  • License plate recognition

Data, software & APIs

The advanced software in the optical sensors quickly analyzes the occupancy of the parking spaces. Locations without designated spaces can also be monitored. There are different software packages for the administrator, the user and for the policy officer or responsible person (at the office). In this way, the policy can be adjusted and the effects of adjusted policy can be directly monitored.
