To make parking for permit holders much easier, Nedap announces the release of the SENSIT Parking License app. This mobile application is a new innovation related to Nedap’s SENSIT system for monitoring real-time usage of individual parking spaces with ground sensors. The SENSIT Parking License app enables fast and easy checking in and out at a parking bay with just one click. Administrators can manage and distribute licenses online efficiently. Nedap has prepared the app for easy integration with third party mobile parking and enforcement applications.

Nedap is developer and manufacturer of SENSIT. This technology consists of wireless parking sensors which detect in real-time whether or not a single parking bay is occupied and how long it has been occupied. SENSIT has proven to be an accurate, reliable and robust parking sensor system for on and off street parking situations. Nedap integrates its parking sensor platform with third party systems for parking guidance, traffic management and parking enforcement.

How the app works

To enable identification of vehicles, Nedap now adds the Parking License app to the SENSIT system. This dedicated mobile app performs in a similar way as the previously released physical onboard device EPL (Electronic Parking License). This patented solution can be used to identify the vehicle and link the vehicle to a parking bay. In the SENSIT system individual parking bays or entire parking zones can be designated for specific audiences. And violations can easily be detected.

This solution monitors the legitimate use of parking bays digitally. The app is easily configured to get a unique identifying number. As soon as a permit holder parks, one click is sufficient to activate the app and have it connect to the SENSIT server. Using GPS coordinates and advanced matching algorithms, the location of the SENSIT Parking License is identified.

Benefits both motorists and administrators

Besides the user-friendly interface for (de)activation of the parking session, permit holders can also use the SENSIT Parking License app for additional parking services such as real-time information about the parking availability as well as a clever car finding assistant to keep track of where the car is parked. This application also improves efficient enforcement of the on and off street parking spaces. Through the SENSIT Administration Software administrators can simply manage their parking licenses.

The big advantage of using an app as a parking license is the fact that logistics and maintenance are easier. Since everybody nowadays has a smartphone, apps are easily distributed. This makes the related costs for a digital license low for all parties involved. The SENSIT Administration Software is capable of dealing with a mix of licensing devices and apps, which makes it a solution that can service permit holders with or without a smartphone.

Third party app integration

The first release of the SENSIT Parking License app is available for a selected group of existing Nedap partners and clients. Nedap expects to integrate this electronic parking license functionality into third party smartphone apps. The automatic license matching functionality is available through an open software interface of the SENSIT system. This enables third parties to easily create their own custom solutions. The app is currently released for Android and a version for other relevant mobile platforms will follow soon.
