Introduction

The Smart Parking v2 solution developed by Libelium allows citizens to detect available parking slots.

The node applies intelligent algorithms to detect changes in the state of the parking slot. Then data is transmitted with the LoRaWAN radio to the final server.

The devices' provisioning is very simple. The nodes are delivered with default program settings and unique LoRaWAN identifiers and keys. So it is easy to use the default settings to register all nodes in the LoRaWAN network server at a time.
The Smart Parking node provides an outstanding detection performance thanks to its radar sensor. The next table shows a comparative analysis of the current sensor technologies in the Smart Parking market:
Libelium Cloud allows the user to remotely configure the node parameters (sleep time, keep-alive, night-mode, etc) via the Configuration form. That makes it possible to directly install the nodes with factory default settings and then update them from the server side.
