Bosch Parking Lot Sensors
We deliver globally via FedEx
New from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions, this Parking Lot Sensor brings the IoT to your car park! Detecting and reporting parking space occupancy in real time, the PLS enables tracking of space usage to reduce the time hunting for a space.
The Parking Lot Sensor is trivial to install, simply glue the unit down to your spaces and your traditional spaces become a smart car park! The PLS units connect to your LoRaWAN network automatically and self-calibrate once they're installed. There are no settings to configure, no switches to fiddle with, just fit and forget.
The PLS uses a magnetometer and radar to detect a car parked above it, and Bosch has extensively tested the device in different environments with cars from many manufacturers. The self-training algorithm cleverly eliminates the variation in road surface without any user intervention, and continually fine tunes the device.
Some of the use cases for the Parking Lot Sensor include:
- tracking space availability
- monitoring electric charging points
- watching for possible overstays
- monitoring use of loading bays and taxi ranks
Worried about complex installation? Don't be, this couldn't be simpler! The PLS is glued down in the middle of the parking space using two-part polyurethane adhesive. We can supply an installation kit of the glue and a dispensing gun so you're ready to go straight away. No need to drill holes in the tarmac surface, no power tools and noise!
Once the unit is glued down it starts transmitting automatically and will join the LoRaWAN network that it's registered on.
