What exactly does park management mean?
The future is digital - also in the area of traffic and parking management. Thanks to the interaction of TAPS sensors on the street and in the parking spaces, the operator of the smart parking infrastructure has the possibility to precisely track where the traffic volume is particularly high and where he consequently has to create more parking spaces. This is possible thanks to app technologies that underlie the communication between customers and operators.
How does the park management of LTS AG work?
The core of the Park Managements from LTS is the Ground sensor TAPS. When a car or other vehicle drives over the sensor, a signal is triggered. This signal is transmitted to the TAPS gateway in real time via a radio protocol. With the help of the company's own TAPS software suite, this data can be displayed and used.
The TAPS Sensor
The first step is to collect data. Park management is all about detecting vehicles. The TAPS ground sensor is wireless and does not require a battery or batteries. This is an invaluable advantage, especially during installation and maintenance. Using an algorithm, the sensor captures and transmits the data.
The TAPS Gateway
The TAPS gateway receives the data and forwards it via an interface. There is a high degree of flexibility in the choice of data transmission. For example, LoRa is available, SigFox, LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth and optical interfaces.
The TAPS Software
Without a software solution, it is not possible to effectively manage roads and parking spaces. With the software, the data collected by the sensor can be analyzed. The TAPS Software offers a number of useful functions. For example, the data is not only collected, stored and evaluated.
The software also provides a payment and reservation option of parking spaces. However, the software's control system can also deny access to people without electronic authorization. Reports and statistics are also useful, which allow conclusions to be drawn about footfall, length of stay and the like.
A successful parking management thanks to TAPS
TAPS detects all vehicles on the street, in outdoor parking lots and in parking garages using the world's first energy-autonomous ground sensor. TAPS works with specially developed sensor technology that records vehicles in real time. This makes the system suitable for both dynamic traffic guidance and intelligent parking management.
The sensor's advanced algorithms enable a detection rate of 99 percent. The TAPS ground sensor does not require any rechargeable batteries or batteries to power it. Signals are sent to the TAPS gateway through a proprietary radio protocol. Immediately after processing, the soil sensor sends the information to the customer's chosen infrastructure.
Thanks to the data provided, the operator has the opportunity to react accordingly and provide the necessary parking space or traffic detour. This not only makes the search for a parking space much more convenient. At the same time, it also reduces the economic costs and makes a valuable contribution to reducing the CO2 emissions.
Park Management of LTS AG: How can TAPS help?
LTS AG sees the need to counteract the threat of traffic collapse in cities. To do so, it relies on a smart solution that is not only innovative but also cost-effective. It combines technological innovations in the transport sector with energy management and efficiency. LTS AG offers a modular, complete solution.
The TAPS wireless ground detection sensor can be installed quickly on roads, in parking garages and in parking lots without major construction work. Exactly where the sensor is needed, it can be embedded in the ground via a simple drill hole. There is no need to lay cables - and therefore no need to tear up the road or square and close it again. Installation takes just 30 minutes.
The sensor is charged during operation. Since the sensor can be used self-sufficiently and there is no need to lay cables, it is not only much easier to install. Maintenance is also less expensive. Precision is a hallmark of the sensors. A detection rate of at least 99 percent is ensured by the use of intelligent algorithms. The recorded data is transmitted in real time and is thus immediately available.
Park Management with TAPS: A Practical Example
A motorist is looking for a parking space in a city. Several parking garages are available. However, it is usually not clear to the motorist whether a parking space is available until he wants to drive into the parking garage. In the worst case, the parking garage is full and the next one must be approached.
Smart parking management avoids this scenario. The parking garages are equipped with TAPS ground sensors that report how many vehicles enter a parking garage. Thus, they communicate the information to the TAPS gateway. The TAPS software evaluates the data and determines that the parking garage is already full.
This important information must now be transmitted to the driver. This could conceivably be done via an app. This small example shows the advantages of the solution. For the parking garage operator, the installation and evaluation of the data is simple. The driver is happy because he does not have to spend a long time looking for a parking space. And last but not least, the environment is happy because exhaust gases can be reduced.
Who benefits of the Park Management System TAPS?
First and foremost, the introduction of TAPS will help all drivers who are regularly stuck in traffic jams. The technology also provides reliable services for people who are frequently looking for a parking space. Thanks to the intelligent traffic management provided by TAPS, such scenarios are increasingly becoming a thing of the past. The use of TAPS improves the flow of traffic. This not only benefits our climate. It also increases the quality of life in cities.

In the following, we will show you which services you can expect from the intelligent parking management of LTS AG.
Smart parking garages
Our goal is to fully integrate parking facilities into the mobility chain. In this way, the driver gets directly to a free parking space. Driving around for minutes just to find a parking space comes to an end.
Thanks to the parking garage display panels, every motorist can immediately see how many spaces are still available there. In addition, green and red lights above the individual parking spaces show whether they are still free or already occupied, without the motorist having to drive through each row.
Solutions for outdoor parking
If the top floor is used for parking, it is impossible to install green and red LED lights because the ceiling is missing. The TAPS sensor enables seamless monitoring even in this case thanks to innovative energy management and robust installation.
Control in no parking zone
The TAPS sensors not only show which parking space is currently free, but also inform the operator if a driver has parked his car in a prohibited position. Some of these spaces are nevertheless open for use by police, firefighters and ambulances. In these cases, we use permits to ensure that parking regulations are nevertheless implemented seamlessly and efficiently.
Short-term parking monitoring
The TAPS sensors detect how long a vehicle remains in a parking space. So if a person has parked their car in a spot where it is only allowed to stand for a certain amount of time, the sensors will inform the operator immediately if the vehicle is still there after this time has elapsed.
Parking in residential areas
Parking facilities are often a rare commodity not only in city centers but also in residential areas. For the satisfaction of residents, protection against unauthorized parking is an important issue. This is also possible thanks to our TAPS sensors. Our technology forwards information about violations directly to the owner of the parking space or, if desired, to a towing company.
