Genetec Announces AutoVu Motoscan—Ultra-Efficient Scooter-Mounted On-Street Parking Enforcement Solution

June 15, 2017

 

Genetec Announces AutoVu Motoscan—Ultra-Efficient Scooter-Mounted On-Street Parking Enforcement Solution

 

 

 

Company to Unveil Motoscan at the Parkopolis Expo and Conference in Paris, June 21 & 22 2017

 

MONTREAL, June 15th 2017—Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions will unveil Genetec AutoVu™ Motoscan, a new scooter-mounted on-street parking enforcement solution at this year’s Parkopolis (on the Copperpark booth # E11 9 pavilion 5.1 and the Indigo Park booth # C13 pavilion 5.1).

Designed to help increase parking enforcement efficiency in the traditionally narrow streets of European cities, Motoscan is a lightweight, low-power, yet fully-featured license plate recognition unit that is designed to be easily mounted on a smaller vehicle such as a scooter or small motorbike. Equipped with specialized ANPR cameras mounted on the scooter, the AutoVu Motoscan system automatically scans license plates and sends back the information to the parking authorities’ back-end system which will identify parking violations and issue tickets, as required.

“Managing parking in a city is not an easy task, but it’s particularly challenging for many European cities with narrow, busy streets. We have designed Motoscan to bring all the features of our state of the art AutoVu ANPR (Automated Number Plate Recognition) system, in a small, compact unit that can be easily mounted on a scooter or small motorbike, without compromising the balance and stability of the vehicle,” said Chris Yigit, Product Line Manager, Genetec Inc.

The Motoscan unit is compact, measuring just 50Wx39Dx30H cm (19.7×15.2×12 in). It combines all critical components onto a single device to keep the weight low.

“At less than 15 kg, the Motoscan consumes less power than a 40-watt light bulb, allowing it to be powered on appropriate scooters without additional batteries, and function for as long as there is a fuel in the tank,” added Yigit.

The main unit is designed to meet the demanding automotive environment, making it able to withstand a broad range of harsh vibrations, weather and road conditions, including cobblestones, bumpy streets and smooth pavement.

In spite of its small form factor, Motoscan packs plenty of state-of the-art mobile ANPR features: this single, powerful ANPR solution automatically captures and reads thousands of license plates per shift. Thanks to the AutoVu SharpX ANPR high-resolution cameras included with the unit, Motoscan will offer consistent performance day and night and in all weather conditions. It can accurately decipher plate numbers on vehicles parked in parallel, at 45° or 90°, and can even read dirty or obstructed plates. The unit is also equipped with ruggedized built-in wireless technology to ensure real time communication with third-party parking management companies.

In order to avoid distracting the driver, Motoscan features an active manual controller instead of a screen. Located on the steering bar, the controller features toggle switches and LED lights to inform the driver of the functioning state of system. The data collected by the ANPR camera is automatically sent to a central location, and there is no need for the driver to interact with the controls, making it simpler and safer to operate.

Backed by 20 years of technological innovation, Genetec AutoVu provides an accurate, reliable and easy-to-use ANPR solution for municipal parking enforcement. Already successfully piloted in a major city in Belgium, AutoVu Motoscan is expected to be available in Q3 2017 from certified Genetec AutoVu resellers in Europe.

NES DIGITAL GARAGE VENTILATION SYSTEM DELIVERS 93% ENERGY SAVINGS AT SAN FRANCISCO CITY GARAGE

June 08, 2017

 

NES DIGITAL GARAGE VENTILATION SYSTEM DELIVERS 93% ENERGY SAVINGS AT SAN FRANCISCO CITY GARAGE

 

 

Limiting energy consumed by Golden Gateway Garage Ventilation System to Just 7% of Its Full-load Capacity

 

 

 

MENLO PARK, CA, June 7, 2017 The Nagle Energy Solutions (NES) innovative garage-ventilation control system continues to deliver exceptional operational efficiencies and energy savings; this time limiting the energy consumed by a sizable mechanical ventilation system at the City & County of San Francisco’s Golden Gateway Garage to just 7% of its full-load capacity – the equivalent of a 93% reduction in kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption and peak kilowatt (kW) demand.

In 2015, engineers for the City & County of San Francisco selected the NES digital, demand-control ventilation (DCV) system for commercial garages as the basis of design for upgrading the mechanical ventilation systems of three, City owned properties: Golden Gateway Garage; Sutter-Stockton Garage; and Japan Center Garage. The Golden Gateway mechanical ventilation system retrofit is the first to be completed, and the NES system has been monitoring energy consumption on a real-time basis – a standard capability of NES controllers – since its commissioning in July 2016.

Golden Gateway Garage is a three-level, 345,000 square feet, enclosed parking facility in the heart of downtown San Francisco, subdivided in to East and West garages, each measuring 172,500 square feet. It can accommodate a total of 1,095 vehicles. The upgrade of its mechanical system included the installation (by third-party vendors) of Huntair Fanwallâ technology in conjunction with ABBÔ variable frequency drive (VFD) technology. In all, 12 new, fanwall units and four new, stand-alone garage ventilation motors were installed possessing a combined 155.5 horsepower (HP).  Tying it all together is the NES system, controlling the primary motor / VFD functions based on carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations in the garage.

“Without a doubt, the SFMTA is delighted with the results,” said David Dunham, Principal Analyst for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which maintains operational oversight of all San Francisco municipal garages. “Taking into account the considerable amount of horsepower powering Golden Gateway’s mechanical ventilation system and the average fan-motor runtime – 18 hours a day – the energy savings captured by the NES system is outstanding,” Mr. Dunham noted.

With no means of ventilation control in place, Golden Gateway’s new motors would consume more than 719,000 kWh throughout the course of a calendar year – or approximately 60,000 kWh per month – with a correlating, annual peak kW demand of more than 115 kW. The electric utility rate for the garage is

$0.182/kWh, so at the calculated rate of kWh consumption, the annual cost to ventilate the garage would amount to more than $131,000 – not including or factoring in future utility rate increases.

Post-installation monitoring and data logging shows the NES digital, garage DCV system is limiting energy consumption to about 4,200 kWh a month or 50,000 kWh per year. That corresponds to reoccurring, annual energy savings of approximately 669,000 kWh. Peak kW demand is limited to 8 kW per year with the NES system in place and controlling Golden Gateway’s garage ventilation system.

The NES system also slashes energy costs by 93%. The cost to ventilate the garage averages $760 a month – versus an approximate $11,000 a month without the NES system. The NES DCV system will provide minimum cash inflow (from the energy savings) in excess of $1.8 million throughout its 15-year lifespan.

The significance of the energy savings is underscored when viewed in context to health and safety factors at Golden Gateway.

The garage’s payment system requires patrons to pay an attendant in a toll booth before exiting the garage, which results in long traffic lines each weekday between noon and 3 p.m., as a steady stream

of drivers simultaneously attempt to exit. As a means to constrain CO concentrations, NES teamed with garage management to — via the NES TR100 controller — increase the baseline motor speed of one of Golden Gateway’s large exhaust-fanwall systems on a 24/7 basis. Additionally, NES set a daily “purge” schedule, increasing the ventilation rate in the garage twofold by automatically ramping the speed of all, remaining exhaust and supply fan motors for three (3) hours a day – from noon to 3 p.m. – Monday thru Friday.

“Beyond ensuring environmental sustainability, protecting the health and safety of garage employees and patrons were critical considerations during the planning stage(s) for each, municipal garage retrofit,” noted Mr. Dunham. “The NES system provides a level of assurance that the health and safety of all those in the garage are protected while holding energy consumption in check.”

Furthermore, NES technology enables the City & County of San Francisco adhere to stricter energy efficiency and health and safety standards imposed by the State of California for enclosed, commercial garages.

NES commissioned its garage DCV system at the Sutter-Stockton garage in August 2016, and it’s presently monitoring / data logging energy consumption there. The same holds for the Japan Center Garage, where NES commissioned its system in early March 2017.

 

About Nagle Energy Solutions: Based in Menlo Park, CA, Nagle Energy Solutions, LLC (www.nagle-energy.com) develops, manufactures, distributes and installs an innovative demand-control ventilation (DCV) system for commercial garages that dramatically reduces energy consumption, increases operational efficiencies and ensures adherence to strict health & safety standards – all while the garage-fan motors run continuously.
