Our pioneering camera-based parking guidance system: The advance that revolutionized the industry.
For years, parking systems were expected to do just one thing: the tracking of empty spaces in order to provide parking guidance. Since the introduction of the Park Assist® camera based smart-sensing system, those expectations have changed dramatically.
By contrast, a Park Assist camera based smart-sensor system puts processing intelligence right at the parking-space level. Each individual sensor has the ability to stream video to a video management system, while also sending rich data for our integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) and occupancy tracking.
We embedded a brain right in the sensor:
Adding to the beauty of the system.
The streamlined layout of a Park Assist guidance system installation is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. Smart-sensors with dual cameras are installed above the driving lane to monitor a pair of spaces on each side. This unique vantage point provides the cameras with an unobstructed view of the parked vehicles – while providing parkers with clear sight lines for easy guidance and navigation. In addition, the M4 will continue to detect occupancy/vacancy and update its LED light ring, even if a network or server interruption should occur.
Since each smart-sensor has an embedded dual-core processor, the core server doesn’t have to carry the entire load. This creates the capacity for more functionality and future expansion, since intelligent processing power is spread across the entire system.
Verified through precise global monitoring.
Our advanced camera based systems exhibit a 99%+ accuracy rate. In a Park Assist installation, the data-driven Sparx™ platform regularly gathers a smart-sensor image from every parking space across an entire site at designated times. Using the collected data from this high-speed verification process, Park Assist system analysts regularly provide the facility manager with a detailed report – proving the accuracy of the system in a tangible way.
Using sophisticated software algorithms, all Park Assist smart-sensors across the globe are regularly verified by an independent third-party monitoring firm – enabling us to monitor the sensors for optimal performance. The Park Assist system will provide owners/managers with an alert if a sensor goes out of service – anywhere in the world.
Built-in fault tolerance for accuracy and integrity.
Leveraging the power of IOT, Sparx is continually kept up to date on the health of your system. The continual dialogue between the intelligent M4 smart-sensors and the Sparx platform ensures overall reliability as well. Sparx continually monitors the daisy-chained installation, sending an immediate alert for any compromised sensor. Signals continue to pass downstream until the sensor is replaced.
The M4 smart-sensor camera: Our most advanced system yet. Empowered by a platform using the latest generation of IOT technology, the sleekly designed M4 delivers unprecedented performance for superior detection and monitoring. Its bright LED light-ring indicator can be configured remotely to display thousands of colors to indicate occupancy status and parking space type (i.e. regular, premium, handicapped, etc.) Poised for future advances via firmware upgrades, the M4’s attractive housing has a seal rating of IP64, keeping detrimental dust and water away from the advanced electronics.
