IoT Development Showcase
Smart Parking Prototype
Watch here a demo of an intelligent system for parking space availability detection based on a sensor network. The system consists of a multitude of low-cost sensor nodes distributed into the parking field, which work in a co-operative fashion with a central server to detect and report the parking occupancy levels in real-time.
The prototype, developed internally by Fortech, contains an Arduino Uno board, a geomagnetic sensor for detecting the presence of a car, a ZigBee radio module and a 9-volt battery to power it all.
