Inductive loops in the ground detect vehicles and their direction of travel to provide a count of every entry and exit into your parking facility. The Vehicle Counter collects this information and sends it to our platform via wireless cellular communication. Occupancy changes are reflected in real time on your parking management dashboard.
All lanes have a two-loop configuration. Cars will be counted even if they drive in reverse direction (e.g. driving in through the “out” lane). Below are the possible configurations:
Dedicated Entry/Exit Lane: Standard width lane with one set of loops
Plaza: Double-wide lane with separate sets of loops on each side of bollards or striping, one side is mostly used for entry, the other side is mostly used for exit
Single Lane: Double-wide lane with a single set of loops, one side is used for entry, the other side is used for exit
