In large car parks, the car park’s managers often want to know exactly how many spaces are still available and preferably they also want to know where these are located. This results in faster circulation and higher utilisation. This can easily be accomplished by installing a magnetic or infrared sensor below each parking space. This sensor is read by a car park management system via the LoRa network. Because of LoRa, no wiring is required. After all, the battery lasts 10 years. If a 3G network were to be used for this speciﬁc application, you would need a relatively large battery, which is more expensive. LoRa’s energy-efﬁciency yields savings in terms of the connection and hardware. Furthermore, the applications are wireless which limits maintenance.
