PNI's PlacePod Smart Parking Sensor (Surface-Mount - US915 MHz)

PNI Sensor’s PlacePod is an IoT-enabled smart parking sensor for on-street and off-street municipal and private parking management. PlacePod solves the most mission-critical aspects of parking management: accurate, real-time vehicle detection and location of available parking spaces.

PlacePod is an in-ground or surface-mounted smart parking sensor that communicates with a LoRa® gateway to provide real-time parking data over a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN). It provides accurate vehicle detection in parking spaces, up to 10 years of battery life, and is stable over temperature fluctuations, even in harsh environments.  

Third-party applications   (parking enforcement, mobile payment, parking management systems, and others) can visualize and use real-time parking data via an asynchronous MQTT API for notifications and a REST API for synchronous communication.

Key features highlights :

  • Includes the industry’s most accurate magnetic sensing system for vehicle detection with the combination of PNI’s high-performance magnetic sensor and vehicle detection algorithms that accurately detect the presence or absence of a car in a parking space.
  • Third-party applications (parking enforcement, mobile payment, parking management systems, and others) can visualize and use real-time parking data via an asynchronous MQTT API for notifications and a REST API for synchronous communication.
  • Includes a built-in LoRa radio that communicates to a gateway or base station with complete Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) compatibility.
  • Sensors and algorithms are finely tuned for ultra-low power consumption, providing continuous vehicle detection without missing a parking event.
  • Simplified provisioning and management using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for wireless software updates via PNI’s mobile application

Description :

PNI Sensor’s PlacePod is an IoT-enabled smart parking sensor for on-street and off-street municipal and private parking management. PlacePod solves the most mission-critical aspects of parking management: accurate, real-time vehicle detection and location of available parking spaces. PlacePod is an in-ground or surface-mounted smart parking sensor that communicates with a LoRa® gateway to provide real-time parking data over a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN). It provides accurate vehicle detection in parking spaces, up to 10 years of battery life, and is stable over temperature fluctuations, even in harsh environments.

Unlike other magnetic sensor-based parking sensors, PlacePod accurately detects parking events in dense urban environments and filters out magnetic interference from underground trains, passing traffic, and overhead power lines which can trigger false parking events. Sensors and algorithms are finely tuned for ultra-low power consumption and provide continuous vehicle detection without missing a parking event. 

Third-party applications   (parking enforcement, mobile payment, parking management systems, and others) can visualize and use real-time parking data via an asynchronous MQTT API for notifications and a REST API for synchronous communication.

Cities, university campuses, and businesses can use real-time parking data from PlacePod smart parking sensors to help reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions, foster economic development and improve urban mobility, and increase parking revenue by making parking enforcement more efficient.
