Prestigious honor recognizes world’s best Internet-of-Things (IoT) companies and products driving digital transformation
WATERLOO, Ontario, Jan. 13, 2022 – eleven-x, a global leader providing complete, high-performance, wireless IoT and Smart City solutions, today announced that its SPS-X smart parking sensor received IoT Breakthrough Awards’ “IoT Sensor Product of the Year”. The annual award, now in its sixth year, is presented by IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.
The SPS-X smart parking sensor, which incorporates magnetic sensing, radar, Bluetooth and AI, is the driving-force behind eleven-x’s innovative eXactpark smart parking solution that is helping expedite the journey to a frictionless parking experience. The wireless smart parking sensor is an innovative patent-pending LoRaWAN®-based device that detects stall occupancy status and monitors space usage in real-time.
The SPS-X enables advanced analytics of key parking metrics, including effective turnover, pattern analysis, spatial framework and analysis, patterns of occupancy/use, time, peak use and average to peak occupancy, pinch points, as well as hot spot indicators and more.
“We set out to provide the most innovative parking sensor and solution available today and the 2022 IoT Breakthrough Award is a fantastic validation of our success,” said Dan Mathers, CEO & Co-Founder of eleven-x. “Parking has wide-ranging impact on budgets, land use and community experience, which are often key pain points for many cities and organizations. Our eXactpark solution, powered by our SPS-X sensor, takes the guesswork out of knowing how parking assets are being used and helps organizations deliver better programs and increase revenues while reducing operational costs.”
The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from companies all over the world.
“Currently, most parking organizations only have insight into paid occupancy but that doesn’t provide a clear picture of how assets are actually being used and it is clear that the parking industry needs a sensor-based stall-based occupancy monitoring solution that can deliver in a variety of scenarios,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “eleven-x’s SPS-X sensor addresses this need head-on, and we are pleased to name the Company as a 2022 IoT Breakthrough Award winner for providing market-leading accuracy, real-time data and actionable insights into parking usage.”
Unique aspects of the SPS-X sensor include:
- Unique design that filters out negative influencers like metal and electromagnetic interference enabling pinpoint accuracy
- Multiple instillation capabilities including indoor, outdoor, above or in-ground, ensuring use through the harshest environmental conditions
- Specialized lithium battery life for ultra-long use and exceptional performance
- Ironclad data security delivered via ultra-secure, carrier-grade IoT wireless connectivity
- Easy deployment and integration with standalone dashboard or external platforms, like payment apps
