The parking detection, guidance and monitoring company Cleverciti Systems has announced it will showcase its “clever parking” solution for on-street and open-air parking management at Parkex 2018 next month.

It is launching what it says is the industry’s first 360 degree real-time digital signage solution for pole and aisle wayfinding, the CIRC360, which is an omnidirectional floating LED sign that displays live parking information in 360 degrees and can be mounted on existing lampposts of any size and type.

“Capable of displaying selected information for drivers approaching from different directions, the CIRC360 can be located directly above parking spaces and utilised for a range of dynamic on-street and open-air digital signage applications; including the combination of local parking guidance with advertising and other messaging, such as smart city data, as well as security notifications,” the company says in a statement. 

“Cleverciti Systems is a disruptive solution combining IoT (Internet of Things) and big data expertise which has revolutionised the management of on-street and open-air parking. Now in daily operation in over 15 countries worldwide, Cleverciti is proven to be extremely accurate and reliable while also improving the standard of living of citizens. 

“Its powerful proprietary overhead sensor technology and innovative Cockpit management software empower cities, property owners and operators to manage parking in a more intelligent and efficient way. Access to the Cockpit is seamless via Cleverciti’s REST API allowing authorised users to quickly and easily monitor and analyse highly accurate smart data (historical and real-time) on parking space availability, utilisation and other key metrics.”

The company adds that cities can leverage this information to significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions caused by parking search traffic while also greatly increasing parking revenues. At the same time, parking operators – at airports and shopping malls for instance – are using the Cleverciti System to improve overall customer experience and increase the time for shopping, instead of searching for parking spaces, and that motorists benefit too from precise, real-time parking information allowing them to make intelligent decisions. It adds, “The Cleverciti platform offers real-time digital parking guidance via its parking app features which can be integrated into client apps as an attractive front-end. The Cleverciti app provides motorists with live overviews of available and occupied parking spaces, guiding them directly to the nearest available space in the immediate vicinity. Cleverciti’s shopping mall app will guide drivers directly to the nearest space of the store of their choice.”

Parkex takes place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 13 and 14 June.
