Solution Combines LoRaWAN®-Based Sensors with Image Processing Enabling Highest Accuracy, Real-Time Parking Space Status Monitoring in Any Location
WATERLOO, ON – CANADA | February 9, 2021 – eleven-x, a global leader providing complete, wireless IoT solutions including smart parking and their SPS-X sensor, and Mistall, a leading image processing and parking monitoring provider, are pleased to announce a partnership to deploy their new TruSens smart parking solution. Developed to empower cities, campuses and parking organizations of all types to make data-driven decisions and increase revenues, TruSens also enables a superior customer experience by offering real-time stall status availability eliminating wasteful circling and searching for available spaces, reducing congestion and improving environmental sustainability through reduced GHG emissions.
Even prior to the pandemic, parking has been a pain point for cities, campuses and other organizations in terms of budgets, land use and the driver/community experience. While it may be too early at this point to comprehend the full impact of the pandemic, it is clear there has been a tremendous impact on revenues and transportation patterns. As the world emerges from the pandemic, the need is clear for accurate data to make informed decisions when it comes to implementing pricing programs and infrastructure planning to meet the needs of what the “new normal” is for parking.
The TruSens smart parking solution combines two leading technologies into a single, comprehensive package offering the capability to cost-efficiently monitor all parking spaces in real-time, including on-street and surface lots which have traditionally been extremely difficult to measure. eleven-x’s SPS-X parking sensors are available in inground or surface-mount options and utilize multiple occupancy detection technologies for unsurpassed accuracy. Mistall’s image processing is purpose-built for the parking industry and can be easily deployed on rooftops, walls or poles. The combination of the two technologies enables a solution that offers the highest accuracy while providing real-time monitoring and management of all parking assets in any environment.
The solution also provides a variety of analytics and KPI’s that can be used to support the development of dynamic pricing programs and provides concrete evidence for decision-making on infrastructure planning, including the re-purposing of existing assets or development of new ones. TruSens easily integrates with other technologies, such as payment and enforcement applications, to provide a complete stall-occupancy monitoring solution that ensures optimized compliance revenues, improved guidance and enforcement.
“Not all parking spaces are easily managed, with on-street and surface lots being the most troublesome, and this means lost revenues for parking organizations,” said Blake Laufer, Chief Executive Officer at Mistall. “We are excited to be partnering with eleven-x to offer TruSens, a solution that can be used anywhere, and eliminate those trouble areas to enable a holistic smart parking solution.”
“As communities and campuses return to a new normal this year, accurate parking usage data will be crucial to their planning and decision-making, both in the short term to recoup revenues and also in the longer run, in terms of budgeting and asset planning,” said Dan Mathers, President and CEO of eleven-x. “Our solution enables an easy and cost-efficient way to improve revenues and the entire community experience.”
