HOW DO THE SENSORS WORK?
The sensors are an infrared vehicle sensor installed in the ground in parking bays. When a vehicle drives over a sensor, it detects when the vehicle arrives and can determine any overstay of the parking restrictions. Essentially, the sensors provide precise arrival and departure times of vehicles. These sensors transmit information wirelessly via an internal antenna which sends data directly to City of South Perth rangers when a vehicle has overstayed the allowed time, prompting them to visit the location to verify vehicles and issue notices as required. The sensors can also be configured to provide real-time information on the availability of bays.
