IoT based Parking Slot Identification indigenous Technology
CSIR-CMERI handed over the IoT based Parking Slot Identification Technology to M/s Steel Sheet Piling Solutions India, Kolkata in the presence of Prof. Harish Hirani, Director, CSIR-CMERI. It is a sensor based smart vehicle parking technology, consisting of an on-site deployment of a power efficient IoT module to monitor the availability of each single parking space. The data of different parking lots is assimilated in an embedded controller and a decision is made on the parking lot availability. An IoT module uploads the data of decisions to the cloud which is made available to the end users. The indigenously developed mobile application software provides the users with the information about available vacant parking lots. The Software is presently developed for Android based OS and will be available for iOS in the future. The technology will also help the end-users with theft detection as it will ensure whether the car is located in its initial place of presence.
The CSIR-CMERI IoT based Parking Slot Identification Technology will play a crucial role in the development of SMART Cities. Add-On features such as Car Tracking Feature for Large and Multi-Level Parking Spaces and Anti-Theft Alerts will be incorporated in the near future. This technology will help in cutting Carbon Emissions as locating the empty parking spaces will be easier.
Prof. Harish Hirani, Director, CSIR-CMERI, shared that IoTbased systems are the future of Public Amenities. India is steadily heading towards SMART Urban Spaces through the SMART City Initiative of the Government of India. Public Amenity Technologies such as the CSIR-CMERI IoT based Parking Slot Identification Technology. Such technology hand-overs will help partner India’s March towards being a SMART Nation. Consequently, it will also help boosting the Employment Scenario as the demand for such technologies will ensure setting-up of Distributed Manufacturing Hubs across the Nation.
Shri Pranoy Kumar Saha, M/s Steel Sheet Piling Solutions India, shared that with the advent of the recent Pandemic induced setbacks in the Economy, their enterprise intended to diversify into futuristic domains. The CSIR-CMERI IoT based Parking Slot Identification Technology is a step towards helping the Municipal Bodies, Builders, Property developers achieve the SMART Community Spaces. Significant Add-ons, customisations and Aesthetics Upgrades would be incorporated into the Technology to improvise its effectiveness. The technology would be rolled-out for the market very soon and thereafter significant thrust would be given to ensure distribution of the same across diverse geographical areas.
