Set-up Barrierless Parking

How to succeed in setting up a Barrierless Parking Scenario to gather data about utilization

You have a parking space where you simply want to know your utilization by making an Entry/Exit count, SWARM provides a perfect solution for doing that quite easily. See yourself:

What data can be generated?

For this use case, SWARM software is providing you with any relevant data for your Entry/Exit parking space. The solution is gathering the number of vehicles in your parking space as well as the number of vehicles entering and exiting your parking space for customizable time frames.

The vehicles are classified in any classes the SWARM software can detect. Nevertheless, consider that the following configuration set-up is optimized to detect vehicles and not people and bicycles.
