  • Over the past three years, Cleverciti Systems has been devoted to smart parking solutions and turning the daily nightmare of searching for a parking space into a predictable, stress-free experience. It has developed a new, efficient and cost-effective sensor technology to monitor parking space availability in real-time for on-street and open-air parking spaces. One sensor alone can detect up to 100 parking spaces and can easily be mounted on a building façade, mast or on existing lamp posts – turning them into "smart lampposts". Cleverciti over-head sensors analyze, identify and measure the size of occupied and free parking spaces across a whole street or large parking spaces, motorway service areas and truck parking. The exact GPS coordinates of the free or occupied parking lots are sent directly from the sensors in real-time to mobile devices, navigation devices or local parking guidance systems for motorists’ benefit. Cities and parking operators also receive valuable data; not only about the availability of parking spaces but in terms of payment data, utilization of the parking spaces and other statistics.
