Tinynode presents its smart parking Wireless Vehicle Detection Systems at Parkopolis


Tinynode SA, the Swiss company specialising in wireless vehicle detection systems established in 2012 and recently integrated in Paradox Engineering’s ecosystem, is showcasing its smart parking solutions at Parkopolis 2015. The international event covers parking and urban mobility and is taking place in Paris, Porte de Versailles, on June 17 and 18, 2015.

Visitors have the opportunity (Booth C50, pavilion 5.1) to learn more about Tinynode’s technology and discover some new features of A4 and B4 sensors for outdoor car parking, including squatting detection for electric vehicle recharge stations, or barrierless monitoring of restricted places in off-street parking lots.

Independent studies highlighted that people spend up to 60% of their driving time randomly looking for a parking space. Tinynode’s technologies help cities and people stop wasting time, life quality, and resources by implementing efficient vehicle detection systems and parking solutions. A4 and B4 sensors provide a simple, cost-effective and reliable way to detect if a parking lot is free or occupied by a car, offering data reliability exceeding 98%.

Installed above or flush with the ground, Tinynode’s sensors rely on a patented, lowest-power, multi-hop, self-configuring radio communication protocol enabling a number of applications for street level parking, multi-storey car parks, time-limited parking lots, and electric vehicle recharge stations. Citizens’ and tourists’ experience can be further improved by smoothly integrating Tinynode’s solutions with panels and displays, mobile apps, and mobile payment systems. Already deployed in successful smart parking projects across Europe, Tinynode’s sensors are easy to install and maintain, with batteries lasting up to 10 years.

As Tinynode is now part of Paradox Engineering’s ecosystem, the company will continue to provide superior smart technologies and offer customers the opportunity to take advantage of Paradox Engineering’s enhanced solution portfolio, with unparalleled products and services to manage any kind of urban service, from parking and mobility to public lighting, solid waste collection, and many more.

Paradox Engineering and Tinynode share the same DNA, based on wireless technologies for urban environments, and have a common vision: to provide machine to machine communications enabling smart environments in the Internet of Things age. Within Paradox Engineering’s ecosystem, Tinynode will have the opportunity to further grow and leverage robust competences, technologies and market presence.
