LTS AG was commissioned to carry out a pilot project on the premises of Hectronic GmbH with regard to parking management.
With over 300 employees across various locations in Germany, Switzerland, France, Poland, India, Austria, and the USA, the company with German-Swiss roots is internationally positioned and present in numerous markets. The broad economic network includes contacts all over the world and more than 70 sales partners around the globe.
The installation of the TAPS sensors took place in mid-September 2020 and is used for parking space monitoring on the company premises of Hectronic GmbH. For this purpose, our TAPS software was also integrated, from which analyses and evaluations can be taken in real-time. It is interesting to know how long on average a vehicle is parked in a parking space and what kind of vehicle it is. The type of vehicle is determined using innovative radar technology and can provide important insights in the company's own process. In this way, Hectronic learns more about customer behavior, which enables it to optimize processes and increase cost-efficiency.
In addition, a proprietary app has also been programmed, which makes it possible to manage parking spaces comfortably from any location. Hectronic now has the possibility to set various parameters in the TAPS system by means of the parking rule function. One can define on which days of the week, how long a vehicle is allowed to stand on the respective parking spaces. If these parameters are exceeded, a responsible person receives a real-time push notification from the system. In this way, parking violators can be detected and parking fines can be issued efficiently in a further step. In addition to the many benefits derived from the TAPS software, the hardware also gives the operator cause for celebration. Due to the completely energy self-sufficient solution, without battery, Hectronic GmbH does not have to worry about the power supply, nor about a system stop due to a lack of energy source. The sensors were installed straightforwardly, in an efficient process, within 30 minutes per sensor.
