Truck stop smart parking FAQs
Why is parking such a problem for truckers?
Many countries have imposed very strict laws regarding the maximum hours a truck driver is allowed to drive for. Violations of those laws are fined heavily, potentially costing logistics companies revenue. At the same time, truck drivers are under time pressure to reach their destination as quickly as possible. Smart parking solutions can help simplify the parking problem by providing reliable data on available spaces.
How can smart parking systems help truck drivers park efficiently?
Smart parking systems use sensors that detect the size of a vehicle and the available space, thus making them far more effective than in-ground sensors that rely on uniformly designed parking spaces. The data generated by the Cleverciti sensors can be fed into mobile applications, informing truck drivers of available spaces en route to their destination.
How do smart parking systems identify large vehicles like semi-trailers or lorries?
Smart parking sensors such as the ones developed by Cleverciti can measure the size of a truck as well as that of an available parking space by using edge computing, artificial intelligence, and deep learning.
