Post by Allen Huang, Updated on August 17th, 2021


Nowadays, individuals and businesses no longer just seek functionality, but also experience – making what is good, better. From personal lifestyle to public, people invented new products to solve concerns or optimize small details to make goods and services worth the value. In automotive industries, parking assistance advancing from reverse indicator to backing camera, and now surrounding view. It all aims to provide a better and safer parking experience. In this case, vehicles enhanced their functionality and escalate the experience, but these are for new vehicles users. what else can we do too besides upgrading the vehicles? We can upgrade from what is below – the parking facility. With pressure sensor layout under the parking area, it can monitor various factors to assist and better off parking experience. By installing the printed sensor, such as force-sensitive resistor (FSR), membrane potentiometer, and array matrix sensor, the connected system is capable of understanding the vehicles’ parking status and feedback indications, and suggestions. Why printed sensor? printed sensors are miniature devices that can be installed easily, and their customizability can make the system oversight multiple objectives to enhance its functionality for both individuals and the public.




In a personal or community garage, security can be one of the concerns for vehicle owners. With pressure sensors integrated underneath the vehicle, its connected system can acknowledge the vehicle is in danger or safe. Any abnormal activities around the vehicle can instantly be feedback to the user when the security feature is turned on. In addition, with pressure mapping sensor as FSR and array matrix sensor installed, drivers without parking assistance can easily be aware the status of the vehicle is straight in the space and proximity indicator toward the rear end. Moreover, for mechanical parking towers, it is relatively crucial due to the border from three sides that needed to be concerned.




With public parking, the occupancy indicator is one of the most concern toward users when looking for space in the parking lot. Moreover, the system can also provide their parking location for the user to find their vehicle. It provides a better parking experience when dealing with a large parking lot and effectively improves its traffic. In addition, there are rear bumps in some parking facilities. A membrane potentiometer can provide a proximity indication for the user to acknowledge the distance from the vehicle to the car stopper. In this case, it is better off for the vehicle owner with low-build chassis vehicles and prevents damage to the vehicle's rear bumper. These feature does not just apply within parking facilities, but also outdoor parking space due to its waterproofing sealed property. It benefits people when parallel parking on the side of the road as subgrade proximity indicators and in some cases, proper distance notifications for local regulation.



In conclusion, besides advancing from the vehicle itself, there is much more to offer from other aspects. To escalate user experience, advanced facilities are also one way to provide a better service for consumers. With printed pressure sensors, it can provide more than a single objective. At the same time, it is not just for indoor, but also outdoor parking that can enhance urban planning with its advantages of waterproofing feature.
