PNI Sensor Gives Parking Operators Greater Visibility Over Parking Space Inventory

Introducing the newest addition to the PlacePod high-accuracy smart parking sensor family: the PlacePod Vehicle Counting (VC) sensor. PlacePod VC is a wireless, in-ground sensor that provides real-time vehicle counts for parking garages and surface lots in cities, corporate and university campuses, transportation hubs, and event facilities. PlacePod VC counts vehicles passing through driveways and designated entrances and exits, and the sensors offer greater accuracy than traditional loop counters and infrared sensors. Real-time vehicle count information can be shared with parking guidance systems and variable message signage to improve the accuracy of parking space occupancy information and guide drivers to available spaces.
