Intelligent Roadway Information System


Parking Areas

The number of available spaces in a parking area can be published on the web, or displayed on a DMS. A parking area could be a rest area or a parking garage. The honeybee server can publish parking area information compatible with the MAASTO truck parking information management system (TPIMS).

A special corridor must be associated with the parking area in order to allow counting available spaces. Within that corridor, detectors with the parking lane type will be used. Lanes 1 (front) and 2 (rear) are reserved for a head parking space. If applicable, lanes 3 (front) and 4 (rear) are for the tail.

Parking Area Action Tag

A [pa…] action tag is replaced with the number of available parking spaces to be displayed on a DMS. The tag has three parameters, separated by commas.

Example
