Traffic and Parking
Banner solutions for traffic control and parking combine our secure, reliable wireless networks with our extensive offering of sensors and LED indicators to provide cost effective solutions for a variety of traffic and parking applications. These innovative solutions are helping communities and businesses everywhere implement parking guidance tools, ride sharing programs and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) that help enhance mobility and alleviate parking concerns, as well as enabling the monitoring of tollways and access and exit control systems.
Banner Engineering’s Wireless M-Gage node can easily be inserted into the core in the parking slot of a tractor trailer or dock area. The M-Gage is programmed to look for changes in magnetic state, for example in a trailer truck lane. The units are self-contained, meaning they are protected from environmental conditions. Many other solutions may not have the same protection from environmental factors.Read More
Previous technology required the use of an inductive loop system embedded into the ground. Installing an inductive loop system requires cutting into a large portion of asphalt or concrete. Over time these inductive loops break and must be replaced. Using a SureCross M-GAGE wireless sensor node eliminates the need for a large inductive loop. The device may be mounted above ground or below ground, requiring only a six to eight inch diameter hole. Vehicle presence is detected by an M-GAGE Node that activates the automated car wash system to power up and trigger the entry door.Read More
Banner’s R-Gage QT50R senses vehicles as they approach a loading dock, sending a signal to workers inside the facility of a truck’s arrival/departure. Monitoring the arrival of trucks at loading docks is simple with the R-Gage radar sensor coupled with Banner’s quality lighting and indication solutions. The radar sensor reliably detects trucks pulling up to the loading/unloading dock from 15 meters away.Read More
M-GAGE Wireless Sensor Nodes mounted on each loading bay signal the arrival of vehicles by illuminating Banner EZ-LIGHT indicators remotely mounted throughout the facility. Supervisors can also be alerted to arrivals using their PC or PDA. Workers assemble quicker at the appropriate dock, cargo security and facility access are greatly enhanced, and docks are freed up faster. Best of all, no through-wall wiring mechanism is required to implement the system.Read More
Traditional wired inductive loop vehicle detection systems require large sections of pavement or brickwork to be damaged and removed for installation and repairs. To avoid damaging pavement, use Banner’s wireless M-GAGE sensor Node, which requires only a 2.5 inch diameter hole for burial installations. The sensitivity of the M-GAGE vehicle sensor can be configured to detect most passenger vehicles within range of the embedded sensor.Read More
During peak shopping times, demand for parking spaces at the center increases dramatically, as does vehicle congestion in the parking lots and around the shopping center. Prolonged searches and long waits for parking spaces has a negative correlation with time and money spent at the center, as well as on overall customer experience and the frequency or likelihood of return visits.Read More
