SONAH GmbH is partnering with parking solutions provider, Park Agility, to bring its AI-enabled, camera-based sensors from Europe to Australia and New Zealand.
Germany-based SONAH GmbH has been active in the European smart parking market since 2016, supporting cities across Europe in solving multiple everyday parking, traffic, and waste management issues. Using camera-based, embedded vision sensors, SONAH gives cities and businesses the power to simplify complex decisions and work towards healthier, more sustainable city environments.
As of August 2023, Park Agility – an Australian company which designs and implements holistic parking guidance solutions – will be adding the sought-after capabilities of a camera-based sensor to its portfolio. Using a blend of software, sensors, directional LED signage and AI, they empower asset managers, smart cities, owners and parking customers with operational simplicity, higher asset yield, and a sustainable solution that helps to reduce parking stress and emissions.
The SONAH GDPR-compliant and camera-based sensors are equipped with advanced artificial intelligence, enabling them to digitize up to 50 parking spots at once per sensor and deliver live and reliable occupancy data with over 98 per cent detection quality. By processing the captured data in real-time, the technology provides remarkable accuracy in not only parking space availability, but also in other use cases such as traffic monitoring, vehicle counting, and parking enforcement.
Now, the technology will be integrated into Park Agility’s wide range of solutions, including parking guidance systems, wayfinding signage, and precinct signage solutions. Park Agility is excited to add Sonah’s camera-based technology to augment its range of sensors.
“We are delighted to be joining forces with an industry leader in outdoor single parking bay detection. It’s rare that a single sensor type can meet the complete requirements of a site and still maintain a consistently high degree of accuracy across all areas,” says Brad Burrows, General Manager at Park Agility. “By incorporating a camera-based solution to our service offering, we continue to provide innovative, robust, and accurate technologies to both privately and publicly owned, on and off-street parking assets.”
