Wireless Solutions for Parking Guidance & Occupancy

Banner Engineering Solutions for outdoor parking

The M-GAGE Parking Sensor uses 3 axis magneto-resistive technology for sensing large ferromagnetic objects. Banner Engineering parking sensor with solar
It communicates by radio automatically its status to the wireless Gateway. The form factor of the M-GAGE sensor is a small epoxied 70 mm disk that is only 25 mm thick.

The radio receiver and transmitter devices can be mounted directly on the Banner solar panel kit and installed on top of a pole.
Alternatively, they can be placed close to the display using the local power supply.


A supervision system collects analyses and transmits the information to all displays through the Data Radio MultiHop network.  Banner Engineering Supervision System

The supervision systemis most of the time installed in a control room.Banner Engineering Supervision Interface

It can be a basic PLC that will manage communication, or a specific HMI
or PC offering a visual interface and access to all data.



Banner Engineering parking sensor overview

Installation Possibilities

Underground installation: the epoxied sensor
is directly mounted under the road surface.

Banner Engineering underground installation

Flush mount: the sensor goes into a protective
housing that only is 30 mm deep. This means that
the sensor remains accessible for maintenance purposes.
Banner Engineering Flush Mount

Surface mount: this protective heavy duty housing
can be fixed on the road surface (for example with
two component road adhesive). This will be the fastest
mounting method. The sensor also remains
accessible for maintenance purposes.
Banner Engineering Surface Mount

The local parking kiosk collects occupancy
information and sends this to the control room via GPRS or cable.

Network Layout

Banner wireless parking sensors are bound to a Gateway, each can handle up to 47 sensors (depending on local signal strength). For a small number of parking spaces only one or a few Gateways are sufficient, but for large installations the combination with another radio network capable to transmit RS485 communication is recommended.

The Data Radio MultiHop with a ‘tree topology’ network brings back all information through the different repeaters.

Relay Models

The relay is a combination of 2 radio devices connected together by RS485. The Gateway of the DX80 network collects the local sensor’s status. The Data Radio MultiHop repeater transfers all information to the master in the control room. Both Gateway and Data Radio repeater are available as IP20 boards or in IP67 housings (for example with the solar panel option).

Vehicle Detection and Counting - Access Control

The R-GAGE is a FMCW radar that can detect also Banner Engineering Radar Sensor
static vehicles and objects. Perfect for outdoor
environment because it is insensitive to all weather
conditions and is sunlight Immune. It can be
placed behind a plastic window for ant vandalism purposes.

The Q45W is a battery based optical wireless sensor. Banner Engineering Q45W
It is perfect for a quick and easy installation,
for example when laying cables is not practical or too expensive.

The wired M-GAGE is an inductive loop replacement Banner Engineering M-GAGE-Q7LMEB
without the need of an external controller.
Because of its slim line design, it can be
placed in a single cut out.

Entry/Exit Applications

Parking occupancy information is important to optimise traffic flow and to avoid congestion when specific parking lanes are full. Simple counting of entry and exit movements is not reliable and cannot provide free space information to the driver. For outdoor parking, sensors can be buried or placed above ground, while for indoor parking ceiling mounted solutions with sensors ‘looking down’ are still preferred. The wireless communication will relay the information of each individual sensor back to the control room (even with several thousand nodes installed in one location).

The M-GAGE Parking Occupancy Sensor uses magneto-resistive technology for sensing large ferromagnetic objects. The form factor of the wireless device is a small epoxied 70 mm disk that is only 25 mm thick. It can be buried in the ground or mounted on top of the road surface inside a specially ­designed low-profile dome. A wired ­version (flat pack) is also available.

DX80 Wireless I/O Node and Gateway

DX80 Wireless I/O Node and Gateway

Wireless I/O systems can transmit a variety of signals (digital, analogue and RS485) with a response time less than 100 ms up to 3 km distance (line of sight). The radio transmission is license-free, yet it is reliable and secure because of frequency hopping and the use of a proprietary protocol. Units can be powered with industry standard 10 to 30 Vdc, solar panels (ideal for repeater units) or lithium battery with up to 5 years of estimated lifetime.

Toll Booth Applications

Toll booth applications become more and more automated, to eliminate human error and to increase the throughput time for vehicles (like free flow detection). It is important to get reliable information when a vehicle is entering the toll station to define the correct category which is directly linked to the toll charge. The main challenge is that a wide variety of vehicles can come through the station: motorcycles, cars with or without trailers, trucks…

Measuring Light Curtains

MINI-ARRAY Measuring Light Curtains

MINI-ARRAY and EZ-ARRAY measuring light curtains, composed of an array with multiple synchronised emitter/receiver pairs at defined distances, can sense the profile of the vehicle. It is also used to detect vehicle separation and sense even the smallest parts like the tow bars.
