Each of us has to go through the stress of looking for a parking spot several times per week. It could be at a concert, a mall, or even just the parking area of our local train station on a weekday morning as we drop off the kids. There really is no escaping it (especially in the car-centric India). It’s a necessary evil that’s come to be expected of everyone, if not particularly welcomed with enthusiasm.
There are many variables that contribute to one’s level of contentment in existence. Some studies in psychology show that many of these variables are quite minor individually, but together they can have a substantial impact on the quality of our lives. Everything contributes to our level of happiness, whether it’s getting a new do, receiving a sincere compliment, receiving a hug from a child, seeing a rainbow, getting a phone call from a long-lost friend, or hearing our favourite music on the radio.
Most of these inexpensive or even cost-free activities are pure joy. Those of us who struggle to find parking on a daily basis can attest to the fact that stumbling upon that elusive “one” spot by chance is a momentary but welcome relief. There are lots of people who say they want to be “fortunate” every day but who actually spend most of their time wondering why they aren’t.
Can you imagine a world where finding a parking spot wasn’t a matter of “luck”?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the game of “Parking Discovery” wasn’t based on pure luck, but rather on a scientific or technological method of predicting where and when to park?
Thankfully, we are residing in a world where technical progress is being made daily. The Internet of Things is revolutionising the game in every way, helping us to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
An app on your phone will be able to notify you of open spots in the new linked smart parking system, and then guide you there. Positive consumer and citizen behaviours are fostered by reduced stress, boosting economic growth thanks to increased consumer spending and citizen satisfaction.
Cameras, vehicle counters, pavement sensors, and other sensing devices are used by Smart Parking systems to monitor space utilisation. It’s an Internet of Things (IoT) gadget that sends a signal indicating whether or not a given parking spot is currently being used. By communicating with a neighbouring gateway, IoT devices provide a constant, real-time update on the status of all available parking spaces. The data is sent to a parking guidance system that provides management and a parking advice app for drivers’ smartphones.
Using a robust and user-friendly web-based platform, Smart Park 360˚’s Smart Parking IoT system connects a wide range of sensors, displays, occupancy lights, cameras, and ports in a parking lot. The technology uses low-power sensors and intelligent parking infrastructure to monitor the status of parking spots.
Our system’s strength is its intuitive dashboard, which lets customers handle and evaluate events and information, as well as see trends and interpret data over the long term for optimization purposes.
Effective Measures for Parking
The Cloud Command Control platform for Smart Parking, developed by Smart Park 360˚, contains all the necessary elements for more efficient administration of parking spots. As the importance of keeping an eye on the safety and state of the environment surrounding this infrastructure grows, it is becoming increasingly essential that our system can keep track of these factors in addition to the more standard physical ones.
