Frogparking gaining momentum in the USA with future focused technology




Environmentally friendly, wireless, solar charged sensors are still the way to go for businesses who want accurate parking guidance in outdoor parking lots, says Frogparking CEO, Shareena Sandbrook.



The complete provider in indoor, rooftop, and outdoor parking guidance, Frogparking’s sensors use the latest in vehicle detection technology and are proven over nine years in the field to be the market-leader in the parking guidance industry.


“There have been some inaccurate and misleading statements to media in recent days, so I think it is important to set the record straight and clear up any confusion,” says Sandbrook.


“The record of our outdoor wireless sensor speaks for itself. We’ve been successfully installing the sensor for over nine years now. They’re installed at universities, shopping malls, airports, and in cities in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. We consistently see 99% detection accuracy at these sites.


“Each device uses three methods of detecting when a vehicle is parked in a bay, giving the sensor unrivalled accuracy. There are over 20,000 of our wireless outdoor sensors currently active in the field. One of our city clients in New Zealand has been using the sensor for nine years now and we have only been seeing battery replacements in the past six months.


“Indoors, results from our new patented laser sensor show. With over 8,000 now in the field since launching the product mid-last year, feedback from our customers and data from our system shows detection accuracy is around 99%.


“Components are all installed above the driving aisle in a parking building to ensure the building’s aesthetic is not harmed with lots of clunky gear. One guidance light per four parking bays on average, also means we aren’t lighting the parking building up like a christmas tree,” says Sandbrook.


Parking guidance provides a frictionless experience for customers looking to park at a busy shopping center, airport, university, or city. However, if the system was inaccurate because of inferior technology, the opposite can occur and customers may become frustrated by being misguided around a parking lot.


“Our customers choose Frogparking because our technology is market-leading and we are constantly innovating to ensure the highest accuracy for our customers. Across the market, we consistently see technology that is inaccurate or delivering false data,” says Sandbrook.


“For example, our testing shows Camera-based parking guidance technology can deliver inaccuracies in detection due to sunstrike, from water, or because camera lenses constantly require maintenance. Cameras can also be tricked by people walking through parking buildings, or by passing shopping trolleys or service vehicles.


“Customers who have previously used these systems and have replaced them with Frogparking’s superior system also tell us the installation and calibration process is lengthy, leading to a costly installation project while valuable parking bays may be taken out of action.


“Frogparking is also HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, UL, and PCI compliant, so our customers and all parking users know they’re safe with us,” says Sandbrook.
