These sensors, installed in the new multi-storey car park of the well-known Dolphin Mall, send continuous information to 2 gateways, which are connected to the Internet for real-time data transmission.
The project was completed in partnership with Smart Living Projects.
Dolphin Mall is Miami-Dade County's largest retail shopping center. Its more than 240 stores, every day attract thousands of shoppers every day and all of them need to park their cars. At peak hours, queues of cars build up as they compete to find a parking space.
Thanks to the Fastprk solution, real-time data has become available to the facilities management teams of the mall to analyze, optimize and manage the parking spaces available. The information is also provided to shoppers through electronic signage, so they can clearly see where empty parking spaces are available.
This deployment consists of 332 surface-mounted sensors. The Fastprk solutions includes magnetic sensors that accurately detect the presence of vehicles. It only takes 8 minutes to install a sensor using standard tools and glue.
Worldsensing is a technological company founded by four engineers: Ignasi Vilajosana, Xavier Vilajosana, Jordi Llosa and Mischa Döhler. Created in 2008 in Barcelona, it has offices in Barcelona and London and it has already become a referent within Smart City and IoT sectors, holding projects in 14 countries and counting on a team of 40 highly qualified employees. Worldsensing revolutionises traffic management and the industrial world through solutions based on wireless sensored networks allowing detection and data capture in real time.
On one hand, its Traffic Division holds a unique traffic management portfolio for Smart Cities that includes Bitcarrier, a real-time traffic management solution, and its smart parking system Fastprk, holding the iconic project that transformed Moscow into a smart city (end of 2013) by deploying more than 12,000 parking sensors. On the other hand, its Industrial Division offers wireless monitoring solutions for civil infrastructures by deploying Loadsensing and by launching Spidernano, one of the world’s most advanced seismic acquisition systems.
