Project: RARE Mobile Solutions


We propose an electronic device that monitors and stores the driver's activities and sends the data back to the main office so they can keep track of each truck driver. The device will connect via 3G or Wi-Fi when available to the specialized software used with the system. The information will arrive at the main office at the supervisor's desktop. This information will include running time, stop time, sleeping time and the hours of each activity. Through the IP address of the received data, an approximation of the area where the truck is will also be available.

Project: ParkWatch


The system allows a police officer or employee to keep track of the time cars have spent in public parking spaces of urban areas by using various sensors integrated in parking meters and sending the information gathered by them to a handheld device. These parking meters form a wireless mesh network that communicates to a server. This server contains a database of all the available parking spaces and an application that manages the information gathered by the network. The handheld device receives a notification from the server when a specific parking meter has expired, allowing the officer to directly intervene in the situation (writing a parking ticket for the infraction). First, when a person parks the car, the parking meter detects it and waits for payment, the person deposits money and depending on the amount a certain period of time is allocated (e.g. 2 hours). The parking meter then communicates with the server and indicates that the parking space will be occupied for that amount of time. The server is responsible for keeping track of the time that a parking space should be occupied. When a parking meter expires the server sends a notification to the handheld device indicating the police officer where to issue a sanction. The application running on the server will also be capable of generating reports regarding parking usage and revenue on a periodical basis. In addition, the parking meter modules will have a mechanism of alarm in case malicious individuals try to tamper or vandalize the device.
