All Traffic Solutions launches laser-based plug-and-play car park counting system


All Traffic Solutions has launched ParkTrak, the first plug-and-play parking counting system that makes use of the latest advances in laser technology to deliver more than 98% accuracy.

The robust ParkTrak system is designed for use at entrances and exits of both indoor parking facilities and surface parking lots. The ParkTrak unit can be mounted on a wall, pole or ceiling in under a day without the need to dig up cement, asphalt or gravel lots, and offers simple setup, including an audible beep that insures vehicles are being counted correctly.

The device uses directional logic for detection, which delivers higher accuracy than loops or cameras, and enables ParkTrak to recognize vehicles that are backing up, entering or exiting in the wrong direction or tailgating, as well as other anomalies such as pedestrians, shopping carts and bicycles.

The device comes pre-configured for cellular connectivity with TraffiCloud, All Traffic Solutions’ cloud-based traffic management ecosystem, so users can share parking occupancy data in real time. By integrating cloud technology into all of its products, the company allows customers to manage all their equipment and data remotely through an internet browser, resulting in better traffic safety outcomes and more effective initiatives related to vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) systems and smart city applications.

All Traffic Solutions is recognized as being one of the leaders in cloud-based traffic management systems for law enforcement and transportation organizations, with a portfolio of products that includes, traffic safety equipment, radar speed and variable message displays, imaging products, and intelligent transport systems for smart cities.

“Organizations require seamlessly integrated parking solutions that provide remote management of all their devices, as well as data analytics,” noted All Traffic Solutions’ CEO, Jim Weaver. “ParkTrak leverages state-of-the-art laser technology and real-time data sharing that allows parking and facilities managers to maximize availability, communicate with parkers, and improve levels of service.”

All Traffic Solutions CTO and vice president of engineering Andy Souders added, “With the turnkey TraffiCloud ecosystem, parking facilities, agencies and municipalities are building their traffic management systems of the future today. As an innovator in cloud-based traffic management solutions, we are continuing to leverage the IoT (Internet of Things) to change the way organizations everywhere manage their traffic programs.”
