Smart IoT Parking Platform Increases Smart Car Recharging Efficiency

Libelium has set itself to recharging the smart car industry. They’ve said they will accomplish this by increasing the efficiency of smart car recharging.

The company’s devices detect the presence of parked cars and send this information to the Everynet gateway via LoRaWAN. The station notifies through the Ethernet when the car is fully charged and sends a text message, in SMS format, to its owner to remove the car. When the Libelium’s Smart Parking sensor recognizes that the parking spot is vacant, another notification is sent to the next smart car owner on hold.

“Working with Libelium is always a pleasure. Quality and reliability of sensors, as well as commercial and technical support, is top-notch in this industry. In Everynet we are not only keen on promoting and pushing LoRa technology for a vast audience of clients and partners around the world; we are also utilizing this technology in real life, installing solutions in our offices, for our people, our city, to make our environment greener, smarter and to improve employees’ quality of life,” said Antonio Terlizzi, SVP and Head of Global Sales, Everynet.

The system follows a FiFo logic (First in, First out). This allows the employees with electric cars to wait in a virtual queue for a free spot. They use their Libelium badge to enable the power station and to get their car recharged.

The method improves the efficiency of the rechargeable station by allowing up to three cars to be recharged during the day by each parking lot instead of one or two in best cases. It also minimizes the time spent on checking free park spots during the day, which is 15 – 30 minutes per day per employee. The method ensures that every electric car can be recharged during the same day.

The employees say they are satisfied because they are now able to know in real-time the availability of a place to recharge their car while they are working in the building. The employee is sure that, at the end of the day, or at a specific hour their battery will be full.
