MIMOS creates a Smart Parking prototype using Carriots

Share This

MIMOS, the National Research and Development Centre in Malaysia, has created a smart parking prototype that shows the excellent capacity of Carriots to help in the development of easy and cost effective IoT projects. Just a couple weeks ago, they decided to take their project to the next level…that’s where Carriots came in.

Sensors and Gateway used by MIMOS for their SmartParking pilot.

Due to the cost of maintenance, wiring and convenience, MIMOS decided to introduce a “smart” system. It combines the same sensors as their original project with the added advantage of being controlled through a Wi-Fi connection. Each sensor connects and sends data over the Internet to Carriots. Carriots then stores the data and allows MIMOS to act on the data received. Using the Carriots REST API it’s easy to use the data stored and display it on a web page.

That’s exactly what MIMOS did. They used Ducksboard to process and display the availability of parking spots, the signal strength and the battery level of the sensors. Using Carriots it’s easy to get and display this important information on computers and smartphones. You can see their frontend sensor information here: https://public.ducksboard.com/PLAUECyDKENxA-irqN2d. You can also read a little more about the project in this article.

To see how to make your own device dashboard you should check out our Ducksboard tutorial. You can see another example of integrating devices and a web interface in the Carriots meteorological station tutorial.

You too can create real-life projects using Carriots! We hope this inspires you to get out there and start creating!
