IoT sensor solution facilitates outdoor parking

September 11, 2018 // By Ally Winning
Q-Free and Silicon Labs have worked together to launch an outdoor parking IoT sensor solution that makes it faster for drivers in cities and towns to locate free parking spots.

The Q-Free’s ParQSense Smart Parking Sensor uses the Silicon Labs’ Wonder Gecko wireless MCU for control and sub-GHz connectivity. The Q-Free solution was deployed as a pilot this year in the UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and North America, and will be commercially released on Sept. 17th.

The ParQSense Smart Parking Sensor is one of Q-Free’s first sensor products to support outdoor parking needs. It uses dual radar and magnetic field technology to sense with 99+ percent accuracy whether a parking space is available. The application then transmits data to centralised base stations using narrowband sub-GHz wireless connectivity.
