Libelium Integrates Radar Technology for Smart Parking ApplicationsBlack parking sensor

Aiming to meet the growing demand for greater precision in smart parking devices, Libelium, the Spanish manufacturer of hardware and IoT solutions, has integrated radar technology in detecting the availability of parking spaces.

The new Smart Parking node improves detection and stability performance thanks to a radar sensor that allows precise detection (99%) of vehicles parked over the device. When the device notices a change in the parking lot status, it sends the data to the cloud through the LoRaWAN network.

Radar technology offers improved performance compared to devices equipped with magnetic or infrared detection. Moreover, radar parking devices are not vulnerable to magnetic interference nor do they give false positives for vehicles parked near or in double rows. Their performance is more consistent in any condition of luminosity, more stable in case of long-stay parking and they are not affected by the proximity of traffic movements such as passing a bus or heavy trucks. Additionally, the maintenance of radar parking sensors is much easier as they are not affected by dirt, dust, rain or oil spills.

Working with Synox, Libelium is working to reduce congestion in Montpellier, a city with 270,000 inhabitants. Twenty Plug & Sense smart parking nodes have been installed in two areas: Montpellier Town Hall and Parc Marianne. Find out more about the Montpellier project.

Varese, Italy

Green EV charging units in a parking garage with sensors on the ground of the parking space

Elmec Informatica, an Italian technology company, has automated its headquarters in Varese with the help of EV charging stations for employees and a smart parking management system. Seven of Libelium's nodes help to efficiently manage the EV charging stations. Read more about the Varese installation.

Other Deployments

350 nodes had also been installed in USA as well as 82 units in a recently renovated hotel in the center of Madrid. These deployments combine both indoor and outdoor installations.

Robust Waterproof IP68 Enclosure

The device is protected inside a small and extremely tough enclosure.

It is IP68 rated, which means it remains waterproof even submerged in water. Each node is provided with professional screws and anchors, resistant to tampering and vandalism.

Easily reset by passing the magnet over the node. Wide range of temperature: -20ºC to 65ºC.

Battery Life

Libelium Smart Parking was created to last. Apart from the robust enclosure, the electronic design focus on being low-power and the battery has a huge capacity of 10,400 mA·h.

Besides, the Night Mode saves energy during hours of low rotation.

All this can lead to 10+ years of uninterrupted operation.*
