As part of the expansion of Germany’s largest Science Center, the experimenta, in Heilbronn, the City Park Garage experimenta on the Wilhelmskanal has also been enlarged, more than doubling the parking capacity to 1098 spaces.
As an expert for intelligent parking systems, MSR-Traffic has carried out the renewal of the parking guidance system for the entire Heilbronn car park complex. The car park comprises nine levels. The dynamic displays from MSR-Traffic visualize at the entrance how many parking spaces are still available on each level. Further displays were installed inside the car park for intuitive route guidance.
Car drivers are now quickly guided to the next available parking space via dynamic traffic guidance technology or via an app. The CROSS MSR ultrasonic sensors with colored status LEDs enable precise counting and single space detection of vehicles. Both single space sensors and counting sensors are installed under the ceiling. To be able to equip the open decks of the car park accordingly, a kind of bridge was installed to protect the sensors from bad weather.
Compared to conventional measuring techniques, MSR sensors can be installed more quickly and provide extremely precise measurement results.
The data of the existing car parks are monitored via the product ParkGard® Control Center from MSR-Traffic, used to control, visualize and manage one or more parking guidance systems. The software’s open interface also allows linking to an app for car park users.
MSR-Traffic GmbH stands for intelligent indoor and outdoor parking guidance systems. Using wireless magnetic field sensors for outdoor use and Smart Cities, and ultrasonic sensors for indoor use (underground and multi-story car parks) MSR-Traffic develops dynamic guidance for every parking system.
