Parking Experience Redefined


At CivicSmart, we know what it takes to make Internet of Parking a reality – data needs to be accurate and made available in real-time to be of value to motorists and parking managers. We have developed advanced radar based technology and solved the accuracy and complexity challenge with our patented sensors – they are simple to install, highly reliable, support a variety of mounting configurations, all-weather, immune to dust and roadside debris (no lens or openings needed), guaranteed lifetime batteries, and vandal resistant.  They provide enforcement quality data and are the highest accuracy and lowest latency sensors in the world.  They are ideal for city on-street parking, private garages, off-street lots, apartment complexes, and shopping centers.


Free Trial


In-ground sensors


Our in-ground sensors take only minutes to install, are flush with the road surface and can be driven over. They are highly vandal resistant, immune to roadside dirt and debris and do not require a lens or aperture. They come with life time batteries.



Pole mount sensors


Pole mount sensors simply attach to a parking meter pole or a space signage pole.  They can be integrated directly with a parking meter. They come with long life batteries or they can be powered by the parking meter.



Wireless placards


Our wireless permit modules make traditional placards and permits intelligent and connected. When a car pulls in, our sensors will automatically identify the placard, and the motorist will get audio and visual indications. They can be used to prevent disabled tag abuse, student, staff, and reserved parker management, automated payments, etc.

SMART PARKING SPACES, SMART PERMITS, AND EASY GUIDANCE PUTS THE POWER OF DATA AND CONVENIENCE IN YOUR HANDS.

Sensors


Mount it anyway you like


Our sensors are designed with you in mind – we understand that parking surfaces come in different types and mounting preferences vary. We offer a variety of mounting configurations – surface, subterranean, pole, curb, or ceiling mount, or integrated with a parking meter.  Our sensors can communicate to solar powered gateways or directly to a parking meter.  Our solar powered gateways are self-configuring, takes only a few minutes to install on a pole or suitable platform and can support 20-50 nodes each.  A variety of single and multi-space parking meters can be integrated with our sensors.

Use for any type of parking space


Our sensors are designed to work for all types of parking spaces. They can be setup for marked or unmarked spaces (e.g., Pay and Display meters); parallel parking, angle parking, or straight-in parking spaces; on-street, off-street surface lots, or multi-storey car parks.

Works with all payment systems


Our sensors can be setup for paid spaces or free, time-limited spaces. They are compatible with metered, meterless, Pay-by-App, Pay-by-Plate, Post-Pay, and other payment systems. In addition, with our unique parking tags they can be integrated with account-based, direct billing systems similar to toll road payments (Park and Walk).

Benefits


Motorist Convenience
  • Courtesy free time upon arrival

  • Wayfinding

Parking Mangement
  • Clear unused time

  • Meterless parking (sensor based enforcement)

  • Time limited free parking (sensor based enforcement)

  • Prevent top-ups beyond time limits (meter feeding, additional meter payments)

Parking Program Optimization
  • Occupancy and turnover analyses for rate setting

  • Dynamic pricing

  • Enforcement routing optimization (including Pay-and-Display and Pay-by-Plate systems)

Permits


Our ground-breaking permit product wirelessly enables traditional placards and permits and is a leap-forward from traditional and RFID permits.  They can be used with handicapped placards, residential student, and employee permits, or with an account-based payment system.  Cities throughout the world are struggling with handicapped placard fraud and abuse that often prevents disabled motorists from finding an open space. When a vehicle pulls into a parking space, the sensor detects the permit and automatically checks its validity and starts a parking session.


Guidance Products


With our outdoor parking guidance systems, drivers will be able to see the number of available spaces on a street. This helps eliminate wasteful cruising, alleviates traffic jams, saves time for motorists, and makes for a pleasant parking experience. The resident motorists of your city or town will love the comfort and convenience, not to mention less stress and reduced frustration when driving. This truly enhances the infrastructure of your city.


Comprehensive Management System


We offer a comprehensive solution, including a full-fledged management system that helps parking managers monitor parking assets, generate reports, and manage workflows.
