Paradox Engineering: Dual Sensing Technology for Outstanding Vehicle Detection

Dual Sensing Technology for Outstanding Vehicle Detection

Grant the highest possible accuracy in wireless vehicle detection: that’s the idea behind new MinebeaMitsumi’s Smart Parking Sensor. The new device features two different sensing technologies, specifically a magnetic field sensor and a radar sensor operating on ETSI 868MHz, FCC 915MHz and ARIB 920MHz bands. The combination of earth magnetism and radio frequency offers outstanding precision in tracking if a parking lot is busy or available, and enables smart applications based on parking-related data.

Leveraging MinebeaMitsumi’s technology and manufacturing excellence, this highly performing and reliable parking node can be easily fixed onto the road surface both in indoor and outdoor installations, tolerating harsh weather conditions and high mechanical constraints.
Mobility managers will appreciate the possibility to smoothly implement a complete parking management system. Thanks to the expertise of group company Paradox Engineering in the Internet of Things, parking sensors can be integrated into PE Smart Urban Network, the IPv6/6LoWPAN solution also including repeaters, gateways, and PE Smart CMS software management platform.

MM Parking Sensor

PE Smart Urban Network allows municipalities to remotely monitor parking facilities, taking advantage of vehicle data to increase average usage rates and car rotation in street level and multi-storey parks, also controlling time-limited or restricted areas. The solution can be seamlessly combined with mobile apps, variable message panels and traffic guidance systems to design innovative services for urban drivers. Being fully interoperable, the same network can host and support other City services as street lighting, public WiFi, traffic video surveillance, and more.
