BICYCLE DETECTION AND GUIDANCE SYSTEMS
Advantages of the LumiGuide system
Our indoor sensors are mounted to the ceiling and only require a PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) cable
In outdoor parking facilities we mount our water resistant optical sensors to poles.
Our web-based application for facility operators and city officials provides real-time in-depth analytics
Operators get access to Live Maps of the facility. These maps show the available and free places in real-time.
The LumiGuide line of indoor displays provides guidance to cyclists who are looking for a place to park their bicycle within a facility
The LumiGuide line of outdoor displays provides guidance to cyclists who are looking for a facility which has available space
Our web-based applications allow facility operators and city officials to inspect the status of the system and monitor and control the facilities and displays
LumiGuide is an innovative software company which specialises in smart parking and guidance systems for both bicycles and cars. LumiGuide developed and installed the P-route Bicycle system for the City of Utrecht in 2015. This system guides cyclists via digital, street-level displays to available parking space in a number of parking facilities in the city centre. Utrecht is the first city in the world that has a system like this. The detection technology is based on optical sensors which are independent of the bicycle stands. The sensors are mounted to the ceiling in indoor facilities and mounted to poles in outdoor facilities. Every minute, one sensor detects 40 to 60 parking places at the same time in either single- or two-tier bicycle stands as well as (stand-less) free parking places. Bicycles that exceed the maximum parking duration ('abandoned' bicycles) are also detected and the system will automatically keep a log of pictures of the abandoned bicycle which can be used as evidence when the abandoned bicycle is removed by a facility operator. The usage of the facility can be monitored with web-based control software. LumiGuide also develops the indoor and outdoor digital displays which can be controlled using the web-based control software.
We have years of experience in software development, electrical engineering, industrial design and project management.
