Detecting Vehicle's Arrival at Parking Kiosk and Activating Pay Station
Parking lots see a lot of traffic and properly managing the entrance can keep efficiency high. Parking control systems and payment kiosks need to automatically activate when a vehicle approaches the parking lot. Typically, parking lot entrances are exposed to various weather conditions and potential inmpact from vehicles.
An embedded M-GAGE Wireless Sensor Node detects approaching vehicles and sends a signal to the Gateway to activate automated parking control systems, payment kiosks, and automated access control barriers. These nodes are fully potted and sealed and do not require any external power sources or wiring. They can be installed underground and are very resistant to harsh conditions.
