Some things promise to be simple but are still intricate and complex. OpenSpace from Parking Logix isn’t one of them. We know corporate parking can be complicated. With multiple options of where to park and no idea where spots are available, parking can be stressful. Add in meetings, deadlines, or just the rush to get into work on time and parking can be quite the hassle. But it doesn’t have to be.
OpenSpace from Parking Logix is a parking counting system that keeps track of available spots in your parking lots. It then shares availability data so that drivers know where to look for parking and what areas to avoid. Parking data can be displayed on customized smart signs at parking entrances. It can also be shared right on your website or app as well as on other parking apps.
Keeping count of data and then sharing it sounds simple enough. But how does the system actually work? OpenSpace data is gathered via sensors at parking lot entrances and exits. Unlike traditional loop-based systems, OpenSpace doesn’t require digging a sensor into every parking spot. You simply bolt down speed humps, with integrated sensors, at the entrance and exit of your lots. And OpenSpace keeps count. Does the simplified parking system affect accuracy? Not at all. In fact, OpenSpace boasts 99% accuracy.
