Partners Promote Low Power Wide Area IoT Enabled Parking Solution

Sigfox USA has partnered with PNI Sensor to launch an IoT enabled parking solution in the US. The Sigfox enabled PlacePod solves the most mission-critical aspects of parking management including accurate, real-time vehicle detection and location of available parking spaces.

 

PlacePod is an industrialized low power wide area IoT enabled smart parking sensor for on-street, off-street, municipal, and private parking management. Unlike magnetic sensor-based parking sensors, it accurately detects parking events in dense urban environments and filters out magnetic interference from underground trains, passing traffic, and overhead power lines which can trigger false parking events.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

With Sigfox device-to-cloud technology, the PlacePod has an extremely long battery life, allowing for smart cities, universities, parking companies, and facilities to harness the benefits of PlacePod and make data-driven decisions over long periods of time. As a result, parking managers and city planners can use the Sigfox enabled PlacePod solution to help reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions, improve urban mobility, and increase parking revenue by making parking enforcement more efficient.

 

The partnership is part of Sigfox U.S.A.’s expanding ecosystem to better serve the needs of the US market, and complements Sigfox existing network coverage in the top 24 US metros, including cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City.
