SAN JOSE, Calif. and NEW YORK, May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aeris, a technology leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), said today it is working with Barnacle Parking Enforcement, a pioneer in parking enforcement technology solutions that makes parking enforcement in communities and on campuses safer, greener, more efficient, and more convenient for everyone. Aeris is providing an IoT connectivity solution for the Barnacles around the world that streamlines the way parking is enforced.
Barnacle Parking Enforcement unveiled the Barnacle in 2016. The bright yellow, 16-pound device sticks to a vehicle's windshield using suction cups with more than 1,000 pounds of force. Instead of using a boot to keep a wheel from moving, officers and parking enforcement officials can immobilize a vehicle by placing a Barnacle across its windshield and arming it with a keypad. Vehicle owners can disarm the Barnacle with their phone, paying their fine online or by dialing a toll-free number.
A Barnacle web app is available for parking enforcement officials to manage the IoT-enable devices. The app allows officials to track deployed Barnacles through Aeris' IoT asset tracking functionality and receive updates about their status, process payments, and run reports on fines collected. The app also includes a worldwide map to track all deployed devices.
The Aeris® IoT Connectivity platform is being used by Barnacle Parking Enforcement to allow parking enforcement officials to streamline the way they monitor the Barnacle and deploy their personnel. The Barnacle also makes being a traffic enforcer safer, freeing officials from lugging around the parking boots, which typically weight 40 to 45 pounds, and putting themselves in a dangerous position to install them.
The Barnacle offers efficiencies across the entire scope of parking enforcement from deployment to retrieval. This results in:
The Aeris IoT Connectivity platform offers many innovative features that let Barnacle Parking Enforcement improve its service delivery and expand its service radius in other markets outside of the U.S.A.
