3M Vehicle Detection with 3M™ Parking Ramp Controllers

3M Parking Ramp Controllers

The 3M Parking Ramp Controller is a multifunctional parking control device capable of vehicle detection and traffic tracking (one-way or two-way) on internal lanes and ramps in a parking facility. By monitoring traffic flow at strategic points, the Ramp Controller provides a central management system with the data necessary to maintain an accurate, real time vehicle inventory for each of the parking areas, lots and zones.

Each Ramp Controller has the ability to be set up in various lane configurations, which can support as many as five uni-directional lanes, two bi-directional lanes, or a combination of the two. The I/O Ports are mappable using the PDA, making the Ramp Controller a flexible control device. Ramp controllers help to direct traffic into or away from parking areas by activating or deactivating “FULL” signs. This type of control enables you to maximize lot capacity, providing your parking patron with easy notification of any parking spaces available or full conditions. Vehicle counts (forward and reverse), loop status and system status are transmitted to the central management system.
