PNI Sensor Gives Greater Visibility Over Parking Space Inventory


PNI Sensor, providers of precision location, motion tracking, and fusion of sensor systems into real-world applications, have announced a new addition to the PlacePod high-accuracy smart parking sensor family: the PlacePod Vehicle Counting (VC) sensor.

PlacePod VC is a wireless, in-ground sensor that provides real-time vehicle counts for parking garages and surface lots in cities, corporate and university campuses, transportation hubs, and event facilities.

PlacePod VC counts vehicles passing through driveways and designated entrances and exits, and the sensors offer greater accuracy than traditional loop counters and infrared sensors. Real-time vehicle count informationcan be shared with parking guidance systems and variable message signage to improve the accuracy of parking space occupancy information and guide drivers to available spaces.

PlacePod VC can also be used in combination with PlacePod Vehicle Detection sensors to manage occupancy for individual spaces, such as parking designated for people with disabilities and spaces with EV charging stations.

“Whether parking is free or paid, operators need the best technology available to provide accurate, timely occupancy information so they can make informed, data-driven decisions about parking management,” said Robin Stoecker, Director of Marketing at PNI Sensor. “PlacePod Vehicle Counting sensors are ideal for parking operators who need to gain greater visibility and control over their parking facilities and make it easier for drivers to park.”
