Sensor Enabled Parking Stations

Parramatta Council has installed miniature infra-red sensing devices, which warn the parking police, when staying for a longer duration at the allotted parking space. 
The test with such parking sensors has been carried out in major busy car parking areas of the city. This technology had already been tested in Lane Cove, Mosman, and in major other Sydney councils.

The Wilson Parkings 27 CBD parking stations are installed with the sensors, which transmit an alert signal to a handset or a central computer within the range. This technology is largely deployed in crucial corporate car parks and shopping centres to guide the drivers about the availability of free space.
NewsImage_1803[1].jpgThough this system is expensive, it will be functional for about four weeks in the Parramatta trial and will be highly successful, according to the developers. Meter Eyes advanced solution will help enhancing the surveillance of the enforcement staff of infringing vehicles, thus exponentially elevating the infringement-drawn income. The sensors track the availability of a vehicle parked in each bay and programs automatically, adjusting the parking duration. While exceeding the allotted time, the sensor generates a warning signal to a handy transceiver of the enforcement authorities, alerting them to the area of the infringing vehicle, reports the company.

The Council states that these robust wireless systems can be installed on top of the car park, outside the Parramatta Library, having a 15-minute time limit. This technology behaves as a deterrent, lowers the parking issues and permits better vehicle turnover. This system will furnish precise information, doesn't depend on tyre marking or ticketing for allowing free parking for 15-minutes, and is easier to use, adds the council.
