- Installation in 10 minutes with no maintenance required
- 10 year lifetime
- Complete software package
- Easily integrated with other existing systems
The Fastprk DUO sensor instantly detects any change in seat occupation due to its immediate reaction with 98% accuracy. Parking session information is provided with high reliability.
Thanks to double detection technology, the combination of both magnetic and infrared sensors allows the sensor to be calibrated immediately after installation and to maintain its high accuracy over time, even in scenarios with high magnetic noise.
Fastprk’s energy-efficient, long range wireless communication network (LPWA) created with LoRa industrial gateways is easily scalable, offering long-range communication as well as signal redundancy. It is a robust system and guarantees reliable communication over time. The gateways can send sensor messages to the cloud with mobile networks or via LAN.
The sensor is energy independent. It is powered by batteries. Its lifetime (up to 10 years) is optimized thanks to LPWA communication and double detection technology even in case of high magnetic disturbances. The design of the devices ensures robustness and good performance over time.
The Fastprk software package offers all the tools needed to manage the entire life of the project, from system configuration and installation to performance monitoring and analysis of the generated information.
Our integration services use standard protocols that allow sensor information to be integrated with any platform, mobile application or parking management system already in operation.
Characteristics / functions
The sensor uses a patented dual detection technology that combines an infrared sensor (detects physical presence on it) and a magnetic sensor (measures the earth’s magnetic field) to detect the presence of the vehicle in a parking space.
The sensor’s detection accuracy is 98% over its 10-year lifetime, even in cases of high magnetic disturbance.
The sensor transmits its information through the gateway using the LoRa protocol in sub-GHz ISM bands. The Gateway channels the information from the sensor to the cloud using one of its IP interfaces (4G or Ethernet).
The sensor is suitable for any outdoor parking space, either on the public road or off it, and for any type of vehicle (light or heavy).
- Sensor: operating temperature range from -30°C to 70°C and ingress protection of IP67. It has a mechanical resistance degree of IK10.
- Gateway: operating temperature range from -40°C to 60°C and ingress protection of IP67. It has a mechanical resistance degree of IK07.
The total height of the sensor is 71 mm with a diameter of 120 mm. It weighs about 435 grams. The double-encapsulated design allows easy replacement of the sensor when the battery is empty.
How does the Fastprk system work?
The sensor combines the infrared information with the measurement of magnetic field variation in a parking space. When it detects a change in the occupancy status, it sends the information to the cloud via the LoRa.
The Fastprk platform registers the entry and exit of vehicles from each parking space and stores the session information.
The information stored on the Fastprk platform is transmitted to the user’s applications:
- Guiding citizens within the city through variable signage panels and/or mobile Apps.
- Control system for established regulations’ application to ensure the proper use of the parking places.
In addition, through standard protocol integration services, the information can be integrated with any existing platform, mobile application, and management system.
