Truck Parking Space Management
Telematics application for the Taunusblick resting area

Currently, Heusch/Boesefeldt is very active in the area of truck parking space management on motorway stations, too.

Since 2010 a telematics application for truck parking at the service and resting area Taunusblick (A5 driving direction south) is in service. It is operated by the traffic centre Hesse. The current occupancy of the truck parking spaces is registered automatically. The number of free spaces is shown on two display panels on the A5.

To gather this information the access and exit ramps of the truck parking area are monitored with traffic data sensors. In addition, video cameras are installed for the calibration and the verification of the occupancy. The management as well as the traffic data detection is carried out according to TLS 2002. The calibration is done not with regard to the number of free parking spaces but the number of trucks at the motorway station.
