Well-known international company from the furniture fittings industry focuses on dynamics in the search for parking spaces as well as on more parking spaces with charging stations for electric vehicles.


Whether, for example, customers of a large shopping centre, guests of a hotel, visitors of a hospital or employees of a company - they all have something in common: finding the right parking space as quickly as possible.

During the expansion of a plant at the Bregenz production site, a new multi-storey car park was created for employees and visitors, including an intelligent parking guidance system from MSR-Austria (a subsidiary of MSR-Traffic).

The aim is to reduce the search for parking spaces and to cut ventilation and environmental costs.

In this project dynamic matrix displays are placed at selected intersections to guide vehicles to the corresponding unoccupied parking spaces.

Ultrasonic sensors with integrated status LEDs mounted centrally above the parking space show drivers where parking spaces are available (available/occupied).

In this case, disabled parking spaces are displayed with separate status LED colours.

A matrix display has also been installed at the access ramp to indicate available parking spaces even before the entrance.

By means of ultrasonic sensors (type Design), the availability of each individual parking space is recorded and managed with the controller/master computer.

The resulting occupancy status is shown on LED displays at the entrance and for each lane. In this way, employees and customers can be guided directly to the next available parking space.

This not only makes the search easier and reduces traffic in the car park, but also saves valuable time.

The systems for detecting and counting cars entering and leaving the car parks can be implemented for an area, but also for individual levels.

The entire installation and support of the intelligent parking guidance system from MSR-Traffic was carried out by MSR-Austria - an Austrian subsidiary of MSR-Traffic from Bavaria.

From the idea to the turnkey parking guidance system. MSR-Traffic offers innovative sensor technology that enables counting and single space detection of vehicles indoors and outdoors. Drivers are quickly guided to the next available parking space via dynamic traffic guidance technology or via app. In addition to the development, production and sales of intelligent parking guidance systems, MSR-Traffic also supports the planning and installation on site.
