Urbiotica announces the next launch of its U- Spot M2M parking sensor with NB-IoT communication
After several months working on the development of the U-Spot M2M, Urbiotica enters the final validation phase with the installation of the first prototypes in Barcelona.
The U-Spot M2M will be based on the new telecom industry-driven NB-IoT standard and will enable direct sensor-to-cloud communication without the need to install dedicated gateways. Consequently, the installation and subsequent operation of projects will be greatly simplified and the total cost for the Client will be reduced.
The U-Spot M2M will expand Urbiotica’s range of parking products to address a broad segment of customers who need to manage reserved parking spaces such as PRM or Loading zones, which is one of the cities’ biggest headaches. These kinds of places are scattered, among others, complicating the installations from an economic and operational point of view by having to implement solutions with dedicated gateways.
“This is a very important step for us” explains Josep Mª Torras, CEO of the company, “We have actively analyzed the LPWAN technologies that have appeared in recent years, but until the arrival of the NB-IoT we have not obtained good enough results to be able to provide a M2M product to our customers with the same reliability and robustness that we provide with our Gateway solution. We are convinced that the U-Spot M2M will open the door to new markets as it is an installable device in any country that has deployed NB-IoT or LTE-M network.”
According to Marc Boher, Urbiotica’s CCO, “Customers today expect much more than a reliable vehicle detection solution, they need a comprehensive solution that meets their management needs. In the last 2 years we have been focused on the development of a global guidance solution for urban environments that has allowed us to be positioned as leaders in this market segment.” As a complement to the new sensor U-Spot M2M, Urbiotica is working on a complete solution for the management of PRM and Loading parking spaces based on the experience acquired in the execution of these kind of projects.
The next steps towards a 100% market-ready M2M solution is to complete the validation phase and depends on the commercial launch of NB-IoT services by mobile operators. “Urbiotica is really satisfied with the first results and expects to be able to supply the first commercial units by the end of the year. The team works very actively with operators from several countries to make it happen very soon” concludes Josep Mª Torras.

Urbiotica releases its new parking sensor: U-Spot 2.0 Long Range
Urbiotica will present the new version of its parking sensor U-Spot 2.0 Long Range which commercial version will be available from September 2016. The new parking sensor delivers a better user experience and even more reliability to Urbiotica’s solutions:
- Simplify the design
- Reduce cost and logistic of installation
- Improve remote maintenance operations and cost
- Increase the reliability of the whole system
- Offer more flexibility to comply with sites constraints and client use cases
These new benefits, made possible thanks to a year of R+D developments, are the following:
- More practical: new version of communication protocol U-Sense Long Range (-50% of network devices)
Implemented in network devices U-Flag and U-Box as well as U-Spot 2.0, the new communication protocol U-Sense Long Range will have a great impact on distance design (up to 4 times the previous ones) and hence on the number of network devices (up to -80% of devices, -50% in average). It will also bring much more design flexibility, offering installation sites inaccessible before.
- More lifetime: energy harvesting innovations to extend device useful lifetime 2 years more (12 years)
Thanks to a new battery incorporated and energy harvesting improvements, regarding supply system and firmware optimization, the useful lifetime of U-Spot 2.0 in default mode reach 12 years, confirming its nº 1 position on the smart parking sensors market.
- More flexible: configuration options available remotely for measurement frequency.
4 options can be configured for each parameter of measurement frequency and “alive” message. With the possibility of configuring the measurement frequency down to 3s, the U-Spot 2.0 confirms its position of “best-in-class” on the market. Very useful for example in the context of heavy rotations cases with display panels or even to refine rotation statistics, it will be configurable remotely and each sensor set-up can be recovered on demand.
- More reliable: as for each new version of U-Spot, design and firmware have been optimized to increase both sensor and global system reliability, improving in particular the management of communication errors and resistance to harsh temperature and humidity conditions
