PlacePod: An STM32 Underground for the Environment and Our Sanity


PlacePod is a smart parking sensor by PNI Sensor that uses an STM32L0 microcontroller (MCU) to help improve battery life. The device is small enough to fit in one hand but still manages to be precise, reliable, and fast. Placed at a parking spot (under or above ground), it detects when a car is parked and immediately sends a signal to a cloud system using a sub-gigahertz network such as LoRa or Sigfox.
