Reference to empty slots and bicycle detection
The VeloView is a system for bicycle detection and helps travellers to find empty spots for their bikes on frequently visited locations. By reference systems that are applied in the parking spots, the cyclist are referred pointed to the free spots. Exhaustive tests and development have led to a robust and reliable product that can be installed at low costs.
The monitoring system works with a series of optical sensors and can focus on cycle racks or simply bicycle parking spaces. The sensors are ceiling mounted and positioned to look directly at the cycle racks. The sensors assess at the racks constantly and record the occupancy and storage time of spaces within the bicycle racks (single or two tier).
