eleven-x Unveils eXactnav to Provide Drivers With Easy

Real-Time Parking Space Visibility and Navigation

 

 

 

Innovative app features multiple wayfinding and personalization options, giving drivers a faster and more convenient way to find parking

WATERLOO, ON,  – eleven-x™, a leading IoT and Smart City technology company specializing in accurate, real-time stall occupancy monitoring, today announced the launch of eXactnav™ – a proprietary navigation app to help drivers easily and quickly find available parking. The app seamlessly integrates with the company’s award-winning, smart parking technology solution, eXactpark™ to provide real-time parking information and flexible navigation options to open spaces. By assisting drivers in finding suitable parking, eXactnav helps reduce searching and improves mobility and sustainability while supporting greater community safety and balanced stall use.

The comprehensive app offers multiple navigation options that drivers can choose from:

  • Spot – drivers can choose a specific parking stall and the app will provide navigation to that exact spot. Importantly, since the app integrates with eXactpark’s real-time parking data, if the space becomes occupied while a user is driving to it, the app suggests other available options
  • Destination – when going to a specific destination, the user can select the area on the eXactnav app to see available nearby parking spaces
  • Zone – users can search for available parking options within a certain area or radius of the city/location

Drivers can filter to find parking availability by space type including paid, free or reserved parking; handicap accessible spaces; electric vehicle charging stalls; parking zones with time or loading limits (like quick stop/15-minute parking) and motorcycle stalls. These settings can also be saved on the app for later use.

“eXactnav furthers our mission to improve the parking experience for all,” said Dan Mathers, CEO, eleven-x. “Drivers will appreciate the app’s stress-free navigation and personalization options. Additionally, for the cities and institutions who are already leveraging our eXactpark smart parking solution, eXactnav is another powerful asset that will help them further reduce traffic and improve mobility.”

Additional unique features that make the app stress-free for drivers and enable them to customize it include:

  • Future Availability – drivers can select a space in advance and receive a notification when it becomes available, allowing people to plan in advance.
  • Parking History & Favorites – maintains a history of users’ parking sessions and allows them to save their favorite parking locations or zones for quick access in the future.
  • Accessibility – has features like text-to-speech input, high contrast text / background design and larger font size settings.

The smart parking app, which is set to launch this fall, is compatible with Android phones (versions 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13) on Google Maps and iOS devices (versions 15 and 16) with Apple or Google Maps. For more information, please visit eleven-x.com.

The City of Kirkland, Washington Aims to Improve Parking Through Data  from eleven-x’s eXactpark Smart Parking Solution

 

 

 

Accurate and real-time insights will empower effective, citizen-centric policy planning and parking management

WATERLOO, ON, July 13, 2023 – eleven-x, a leading IoT and Smart City technology company specializing in accurate, real-time stall occupancy monitoring, today announced it has been selected by the City of Kirkland, Washington to deploy the company’s award-winning eXactpark™ Smart Parking Solution in the city’s busy downtown area. This partnership aligns with Kirkland’s Smart Cities Initiative which aims to leverage innovative solutions to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public, deliver enhanced services and effectively manage resources to improve the community’s quality of life. Through eleven-x’s comprehensive eXactpark parking monitoring sensor and software solution, the City of Kirkland aims to gain an accurate understanding of parking usage in the downtown area to develop informed, community-centric policies.

Kirkland is a picturesque city located on the eastern shore of Lake Washington. The downtown area of the city, known for its waterfront access to Lake Washington, has experienced increasing traffic volumes and greater demand for parking in recent years. Limited availability of premium parking, such as free on-street parking and low-cost $1 per hour parking in two of the city-owned lots, has resulted in difficulties for residents, employees, and visitors seeking parking options. In response to these challenges, the City is taking a proactive approach to implementing measures that will effectively address the needs and desires of drivers with the existing parking resources.

“The eXactpark smart parking solution will be able to provide us with 24/7 insights on each individual parking stall, which will ultimately help us develop evidence-based policies to benefit our community,” said Julie Underwood, the Public Works Director of Kirkland, Washington.

eleven-x is currently deploying 500 sensors and wireless gateways to capture stall occupancy in on-street spaces, surface lots, and waterfront parking areas in Kirkland’s busy downtown areas. The cloud-based eXactpark software will be integrated with the City’s new online parking data collection and management platform using standard APIs to provide meaningful parking occupancy data and analytics for City planners. Importantly, since the eXactpark sensors do not employ camera technology, none of the data collected will retain identifiable or personal information, ensuring privacy.

“In an increasingly connected world, where data plays a crucial role in improving urban mobility, it is just as critical to uphold the privacy of individuals,” said Dan Mathers, CEO, eleven-x. “This commitment is central to fostering public confidence in the deployment of data-driven parking technologies and is a core reason why our smart parking solution employs autonomous data management.”

Leveraging innovative technologies and accurate data to shape planning and parking policies will further the City of Kirkland’s sustainability goals, helping create a vibrant and future-ready city for everyone. For more information on eleven-x’s eXactpark solution please visit eleven-x.com.

eleven-x Awarded Major North American Smart Parking Contract by Arlington County, Virginia

February 16, 2023

 

 

 

eleven-x Awarded Major North American Smart Parking Contract by Arlington County, Virginia

 

The company will deploy its award-winning eXactpark solution across

the County’s commercial district to improve the parking experience and reduce vehicle emissions 

 

WATERLOO, Ontario, February 16, 2023: eleven-x, a global leader providing complete, high-performance, wireless IoT and Smart City solutions, today announced it was selected by Arlington County, Virginia for one of the largest municipal smart parking installations in North America. As part of the County’s mission to leverage smart city initiatives to help improve their citizens’ quality of life, the county has selected eleven-x to provide its award-winning  eXactpark™ smart parking solution. Through this comprehensive parking monitoring sensor and software solution, Arlington County aims to help drivers quickly and efficiently find available on-street parking, thereby reducing cruising and congestion, while improving overall safety in the area and helping lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In support of Arlington County’s objectives of improving quality of life, sustainability and economic development, eleven-x will embed approximately 5,000 of its SPS-X sensors in all on-street parking stalls around the vibrant commercial district. The award winning, patent pending SPS-X sensorutilizes multiple technologies to provide 99.5% accuracy, the highest in the industry. Drivers will be able to find available parking with the aid of signs and a wayfinding app that provides real-time stall occupancy data. Furthermore, eXactpark’s robust software platform will be integrated with pay meters to enable dynamic pricing initiatives, which is a key requisite for the county. This capability will help them achieve desired parking and stall availability targets, helping improve traffic congestion and better address parking issues.

eXactpark’s SPS-X sensor will identify key parking trends such as occupancy/use patterns, underutilized parking spaces, hot spot indicators and more. While the public facing use of this data will provide real-time parking guidance to available spots, these metrics will also be an essential input into eXactpark’s software that includes several features to help the County address traffic and parking concerns. The real-time data will enable the parking management team to gain a better understanding of parking usage, while the demand-based pricing module will provide tools to influence parking behavior through dynamic pricing. Additionally, through the curbside management feature, parking managers can develop a digital twin of the physical curb and overlay pricing options, as well as occupancy thresholds, to test the outcomes of various policy initiatives. This will enable the County to develop efficient and effective parking policies. eleven-x is leading this large-sale innovative project with several partners including Arcadis|IBI Group, Smarking, Rhodeside & Harwell, and Guidehouse.

“Many people do not realize the wide-ranging, positive impact a frictionless parking experience can have on a community and local businesses,” said Dan Mathers, CEO of eleven-x. “By improving the parking experience and reducing traffic congestion, Arlington County will be able to increase mobility, encourage more visits to the commercial corridor, advance public safety, and help lower GHG emissions. We are thrilled to work with the progressive, innovative team at the County to roll-out our comprehensive eXactpark solution for the public benefit.”

Arlington County has launched launch a public engagement program to help the community understand the solution and collect feedback. As part of County’s community engagement initiative, eleven-x will first install sensors in the Courthouse Plaza parking lot and launch the software program.

eleven-x’s eXactpark Solution Selected by the City of Guelph to Improve Parking Access and Urban Mobility

November 30, 2022

 

 

 

eleven-x’s eXactpark Solution Selected by the City of Guelph to Improve Parking Access and Urban Mobility

The solution will provide real-time space status availability and intelligent enforcement to help residents and visitors more easily find parking and reduce traffic

 

 

WATERLOO, Ontario, November, 30, 2022 — eleven-x, a global leader providing complete, high-performance, wireless IoT and Smart City solutions, today announced it was selected by the City of Guelph to help the municipality improve the management and oversight of their two-hour free parking program by implementing the company’s innovative eXactpark™ solution. eleven-x’s smart parking solution enables comprehensive parking monitoring via a real-time sensor-based stall occupancy technology and a comprehensive software and parking intelligence platform to enable effective management of the city’s parking assets.

The City of Guelph is a vibrant community of over 143,000 people situated in the heart of southern Ontario with a thriving city center. eXactpark will enable the city to better manage its limited parking resources and reduce traffic congestion by providing  real-time parking stall occupancy data, and software to use this data to manage parking assets and implement advanced intelligent enforcement capabilities.

The comprehensive solution incorporates eleven-x’s award winning, patent pending SPS-X sensor, which provides the stall occupancy data to the eXactpark software suite.  The sensor utilizes multiple technologies including magnetic sensing, radar, Bluetooth, along with advanced edge processing,  to provide industry-leading battery life, reliability and most importantly accuracy. Sensors will be installed in two phases, starting with 250 stalls across the municipality’s unique downtown district, with an additional 1,750 projected to be deployed throughout the city to provide advanced real-time analytics of key parking metrics. The eXactpark software suite not only provides parking intelligence software to the city but  will also enable intelligent parking enforcement capabilities so the city can improve its monitoring capabilities for its two-hour free parking program. The sensors will detect how long vehicles are parked in, a space and will be used to enforce the free two-hour limit and to inform longer-term planning for parking needs.

“Many municipalities have free parking policies. It is typically challenging to efficiently monitor, manage and ensure usage compliance for a resource that is offered free of charge. This makes it difficult to maintain the best experience for drivers, since it leads to excessive traffic, and frustrates residents, visitors and ultimately the small business owners who rely on them” said Dan Mathers, President and CEO of eleven-x. “the capabilities that eXactpark provides, including real-time availability and intelligent enforcement, will help the City of Guelph to streamline parking operations, resulting in cost savings,  while at the same time reducing traffic and improving access to downtown businesses.”

eXactpark’s intelligent enforcement and real-time status and monitoring capabilities are essential to the city as it helps reduce cruise times, improves road safety and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The data and insights provided by the smart parking solution will also provide the City of Guelph actionable insights to help with parking asset planning and dynamic pricing initiatives.

“This technology will help make parking downtown easier and more convenient. Eventually, this data will be available on our website so visitors will know – in real time – how many parking spaces are available before they head downtown. These sensors will also improve road safety and lower greenhouse gas emissions across the city.” said Jamie Zettle, Program Manager, Parking at the City of Guelph. “We decided to partner with eleven-x since we have seen the successful deployment of the company’s eXactpark solution in multiple major cities and institutions across North America.”

eXactPark uses LoRaWAN®, a low-power technology that offers a 10-year battery life and minimal maintenance. For more information on eleven-x’s eXactpark solution please visit exactpark.com.

This game-changing innovative solution will help municipalities, campuses and private organizations drive additional revenues, reduce costs, and ensure a great experience for drivers. eleven-x’s patent-pending, real-time stall occupancy sensor is the key enabling technology for better understanding of how parking assets are being used and for enabling new capabilities designed to improve operations.

“Given the financial impacts of the pandemic on parking revenues, this technology is essential to help cities, campuses and organizations improve operations and maximize the use of their parking stalls,” said Dan Mathers, President and CEO of eleven-x. “Our new smart parking solution will also help to improve the customer experience by navigating people to available spots, avoiding the need to circle around city streets and parking lots looking for a parking spot.”

With industry-leading accuracy and unsurpassed reliability, eXactpark offers the lowest cost-per space solution available on the market. Once implemented, this solution will enable seamless parking experiences through proper wayfinding, providing drivers with real-time information on space availability and location. The data it generates will be essential for creating actionable analytics integral to asset management and program planning.

eleven-x’s smart parking solution is also a critical tool to manage parking compliance and enforcement. Sensors enable alerts to compliance officers when vehicles are in contravention of parking conditions, allowing for more efficiency whether it be a warning or parking ticket.

This innovative smart parking solution uses LoRaWAN®, a low-power technology that offers longer battery life for sensors and reduced maintenance costs. Providing industry-leading battery life and unsurpassed reliability, eXactpark’s SPS-X sensor uses a combination of wireless technologies and artificial intelligence to accurately determine the occupancy status of every parking stall. The eXactpark software platform easily integrates with other smart parking technologies and provides historical and real-time data to ensure effective management of parking spaces while optimizing compliance revenues and improving operations.

“Parking has become such an important consideration when it comes to climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, land use planning, economic development and creating livable communities,” said Mathers. “With the historical and real-time data generated from eXactpark, cities, campuses and organizations will be better positioned to address these issues while offering better parking guidance and navigation for the customer.”

With the exponential growth of vehicular traffic in cities, it is essential that municipalities, campuses and organizations implement smart parking solutions to better manage traffic flow and provide parking guidance. By incorporating IoT solutions into a smart parking management system, it will be possible to extract valuable data to enhance revenues, streamline operations and improve the customer experience.

eXactpark is available now and installations have already begun for organizations including the Town of Oakville, City of Stratford, City of Spruce Grove and the University of British Columbia.

Solution Combines LoRaWAN®-Based Sensors with Image Processing Enabling Highest Accuracy, Real-Time Parking Space Status Monitoring in Any Location

 

WATERLOO, Ontario, Feb. 09, 2021 — eleven-x, a global leader providing complete, wireless IoT solutions including smart parking and the patent-pending SPS-X sensor, and Mistall, a leading image processing and parking monitoring provider, are pleased to announce a partnership to deploy their new TruSens smart parking solution. Developed to empower cities, campuses and parking organizations of all types to make data-driven, evidence-based decisions and increase revenues, TruSens also enables a superior customer experience by offering real-time stall availability eliminating wasteful searches, reducing congestion and improving environmental sustainability through reduced GHG emissions.

Even prior to the pandemic, parking has been a pain point for cities, campuses and other organizations in terms of budgets, land use and the driver/community experience. While it may be too early at this point to comprehend the full impact of the pandemic, it is clear there has been a tremendous effect on revenues and transportation patterns. As the world emerges from the pandemic, the need is clear for accurate data to make informed decisions when it comes to implementing pricing programs and infrastructure planning to meet the needs of what the “new normal” is for parking.

The TruSens smart parking solution combines two leading technologies into a single, comprehensive package offering the capability to cost-efficiently monitor all parking spaces in real-time, including on-street and surface lots which have traditionally been extremely difficult to measure. eleven-x’s SPS-X parking sensors are available in inground or surface-mount options and utilize multiple occupancy detection technologies for unsurpassed accuracy. Mistall’s image processing is purpose-built for the parking industry and can be easily deployed on rooftops, walls or poles. The combination of the two technologies enables a solution that offers the highest accuracy while providing real-time monitoring and management of all parking assets in any environment.

The solution also provides a variety of analytics and KPIs that can be used to support the development of dynamic pricing programs and provides concrete evidence for decision-making on infrastructure planning, including the re-purposing of existing assets or development of new ones. TruSens easily integrates with other technologies, such as payment and enforcement applications, to provide a complete stall-occupancy monitoring solution that ensures optimized compliance revenues, improved guidance and enforcement.

“Not all parking spaces are easily managed, with on-street and surface lots being the most troublesome, and this means lost revenues for parking organizations,” said Blake Laufer, Chief Executive Officer at Mistall. “We are excited to be partnering with eleven-x to offer TruSens, a solution that can be used anywhere, and eliminate those trouble areas to enable a holistic smart parking solution.”

“As communities and campuses return to a new normal this year, accurate parking usage data will be crucial to their planning and decision-making, both in the short term to recoup revenues and also in the longer run, in terms of budgeting and asset planning,” said Dan Mathers, President and CEO of eleven-x. “Our solution enables an easy and cost-efficient way to improve revenues and the entire community experience.”

The TruSens smart parking solution is available now and can be scaled for any type or size of parking asset in any type of environment. For more information visit eleven-x or Mistall.
