I have seen on the news that some batteries used within the parking industry are unsafe - was Frogparking part of this?

Frogparking was not involved in this as we use LiFePO4. It is widely documented that our battery chemistry (lithium iron phosphate) is considerably safer than any other lithium tech. LiFePO4 are the safest type of lithium battery because they are not prone to overheating and even if they are punctured, they won’t catch fire. The cathode material is also non-hazardous and therefore it poses no environmental or negative health hazards.

We sure do! We pride ourselves on multiple parking lot monitoring solutions. We are unique as we cover both indoor and outdoor IoT parking sensors that link can link into an overall smart parking system. Give the team a buzz on to have a chat.

What is the best parking guidance technology?

LiDAR is far superior, and that’s why we use it. We could ‘harp on’ forever, but essentially, LiDAR is less susceptible to vibrations, ambient lighting & weather (like ultrasonic & camera-based parking guidance systems).

How does LiDAR work?

LiDAR sends out laser beams, which are like super-focused flashlight beams. These beams bounce off things like trees, buildings, or the ground. LiDAR measures how long it takes for the laser beams to come back. This tells us how far away things are. By doing this really fast and in many directions, LiDAR creates detailed 3D maps of the area it’s looking at. Hence, how it can tell if a vehicle is in a parking bay. It basically takes the car parking space monitoring system to the next level. 

How does a car park monitoring system work?

Great question – it is a little bit complicated, and depends what solution you opt for. We would suggest you reach out to for other use-case scenarios. For example, if you are looking for a Parking Access & Revenue Control System (PARCS) – it includes hardware such as a parking barrier arm, a parking payment kiosk & a License Plate Recognition camera. All of this links into an overall parking management software. 

Is Frogparking a smart parking provider?

Absolutely are! We offer a range of intelligent parking software & hardware solutions that leverage data and improve automation. 

What are the benefits of LiDAR?

Overall, LiDAR plays a crucial role in modern parking systems by providing accurate real-time data, improving safety, optimizing space utilization, and enhancing the overall parking experience for drivers. It is an IoT parking solution, so connects seamlessly with other parking software or hardware solutions.  Reach out to and one of the team is more than happy to run you through how it works with parking guidance systems or vehicle counting solutions.

How if the FrogLPR (license plate reader) future-proofed?

We have the flexibility to adapt to impending changes.  If there is a future law that prevents the storage of images, we can switch off that feature within literally one second. If the law changes mean we just have to be more restrictive on who can view images – we can do that too. Literally with a few clicks of a mouse. Another scenario would be if we could only store them for a limited time, then they had to be deleted, we could do that too.
