Cleverciti to launch industry’s first 3D digital parking display at UK’s Parkex show


A leading German developer of detection, guidance and monitoring systems for intelligent on-street and open-air parking management, Cleverciti Systems, will launch the industry’s first 3D signage at the Parkex 2018 show, which is taking place from June 13-14 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, UK.

Along with its existing product portfolio on display at Parkex, Cleverciti will launch the industry’s first 3D outdoor digital parking display, combining real-time wayfinding, messaging and advertising in a 360° real-time signage system for pole and aisle deployment.

The company’s CIRC360 unit is an omnidirectional floating LED sign that displays live parking information in 360°, and can be mounted on existing lampposts of any size and type within 15 minutes. Capable of displaying selected information for drivers approaching from multiple different directions, the CIRC360 can be located directly above parking spaces and used for a range of dynamic on-street and open-air digital signage applications; this include the combination of local parking guidance with advertising and other messaging, such as smart city data, as well as security notifications.

Cleverciti’s technology is based on a disruptive solution combining IoT (Internet of Things) and big data expertise, which has revolutionized the management of on-street and open-air parking. Now in daily operation in over 15 countries worldwide, the Cleverciti system is proven to be extremely accurate and reliable, while also improving the standard of living of citizens.

The company’s powerful proprietary overhead sensor technology and innovative Cockpit management software empower cities, property owners and facility operators to manage parking in a more intelligent and efficient way.

Access to the Cockpit is seamless via Cleverciti’s REST API (Application Programming Interface), allowing authorized users to quickly and easily monitor and analyze highly accurate historical and real-time data on parking space availability, usage and other key metrics.

Cities can use this information to significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions caused by parking search traffic while also greatly increasing parking revenues. At the same time, parking operators are using the Cleverciti system to improve overall customer experience and increase the time for shopping or leisure activities, instead of searching for parking spaces.

Motorists benefit from precise, live parking information, as the Cleverciti platform offers real-time digital guidance via its parking app, which provides drivers with live overviews of available and occupied parking spaces, guiding them directly to the nearest available space in the immediate vicinity.

Cleverciti’s high-precision overhead parking sensors are easy and cost-effective to deploy without street closure or vacation of parking spaces. A single overhead sensor can detect up to 100 parking spaces and views a parking area holistically.

Even in snowy, rainy or hot sunny conditions the sensors ensure precise measurement in real-time to fully maximize available capacity across entire streets, large parking areas, shopping centers, stadiums and truck parks; while intelligently monitoring restricted areas, such as bus lanes, taxi ranks, EV charging stations and fire hydrants.

There is no requirement for roadworks or other disruption during installation as the sensors are simply mounted on existing or new (smart) lampposts, masts or façades, or integrated into luminaires.
