The OpenSpace smart parking guidance system involves ongoing, up-to-the-minute wireless communication between each of the system elements- the wireless sensors, parking lot signs, and end user apps and technology.
The wireless parking sensors communicate data to the OpenSpace Variable Messaging Sign (VMS), a single-faced parking lot sign with a 4-digit LED display. Data is communicated wirelessly with the VMS via zigbee communication. The VMS, operating with either solar or A/C power, then shows the number of available spaces in the facility. Parking counting data is updated in under 3 seconds each time a car is detected by the humps.
The OpenSpace VMS signs can accommodate sim card controllers to communicate parking management data regarding available parking spaces to 3rd party apps, websites, or in-car navigation systems through our partner network.
