Nedap Launches Smart-Parking Sensor Platform

Nedap, a provider of parking-detection technologies, has launched a new line of smart parking products, including a smart parking sensor, a parking-guidance app and a gateway. The company's new platform, known as SENSIT, is designed to optimize parking guidance and traffic flows in city centers and retail environments, resulting in reduced congestion and emissions, safer streets, and a more attractive city for visitors and retailers.

Nedap's SENSIT IR Flush Mount sensor combines infrared and magnetic field-detection technologies. It can be installed completely recessed into a road's surface, making it resistant to snow plows and preventing tripping hazards. The sensor detects the occupancy of individual parking spaces in real time.

"We are very proud to launch this new generation of SENSIT sensors," said Edwin Siemerink, Nedap's SENSIT proposition manager, in a prepared statement. "Our products have proven to be the reliable and durable parking detection solution for years in applications all over the world. With the addition of the SENSIT IR Flush Mount, Nedap responds to the growing demand for highly accurate sensors that are mounted fully flush into the road surface."

Nedap's SENSIT P-Guide App, available for both iOS and Android smartphones, enables cities, municipalities and companies to provide motorists with real-time parking information. The app can be fully customized to fit a city's marketing needs, and helps motorists locate and navigate to available parking spaces, both on- and off-street. Recently, the P-Guide app was introduced in the Dutch city of Zoetermeer.

Finally, Nedap's SENSIT Gateway, an interface between the wireless SENSIT network and the interface software, offers 3G, Ethernet and GPRS communication. The design of the interface software is completely map-oriented and, according to the company, enables the configuration of any smart parking application.
