Aims

The National Parks are custodians of the countryside. Remote car parking in the National Parks can be an issue and some are full by mid-morning and people arriving later park on nearby verges and in front of gateways.

This is a problem as they block access for emergency vehicles and damage vegetation in the park.

The National Park wanted to understand the numbers of cars currently parking by the roadside in order to proactively deploy rangers to move them on and reduce congestion.

Solution

Benefits

Our vehicle and car parking system comprises overhead cameras connected to counting units which detect and record parked cars. Every five minutes the system sends reports via LoRaWAN detailing the numbers of cars currently parking by the side of the road, and occupancy of the car parks to the Park Authorities in order to deploy their rangers to manage any congestion and take proactive action.

Working with the team at R-Com has been such an enjoyable experience from start to finish.  Their expertise is second to none and the consultative approach to ask questions and listen to our needs is refreshing. Would definitely recommend and will be working with them again in the future!
