The sensors help efficient management of EV charging stations installed in car parking lots
EV charger availability sensor is wireless, on-ground fixed vehicle detection sensor that uses adaptive algorithm based detection with change in earth’s magnetic fields when any car comes over the sensor device. The sensor device OEM Techprom IoT, facilitates the integration of sensor data with EV charging data to provide important KPI like duration of the car parked against the time taken for charging.
Consider a situation you are an EV driver, arriving at a car parking with just a low battery hoping to find a vacant EV charger enabled parking bay and find it occupied by a non-EV vehicle.
This is not just an issue for EV driver but for parking lot operators as it affects customer experience.
Certain issues at the EV charging stations can impact their efficiency of utilization.
- Locating a nearby available car parking space enabled with EV charger facility
- A random car blocking the EV charger enabled parking spot without charging
- Losing the real customers needing EV charging because of long-term or unauthorized parkers
Real time occupancy data of EV Charging station and parking space provides important insights into the use of the EV charging stations. The key performance indicators of EV chargers include occupancy status of EV charger enabled parking spot; correct display of nearby available charging station and keeping the charging station enabled parking space available for Electric Vehicles
Techprom IoT manufactures EV charger availability sensors that integrate with EV-chargers and can provide the user with important KPIs which can help improve utilization of EV charging stations and access to the availability of EV charging stations.

Abhishek Babhulkar, CTO, Techprom IoT says that the startup is collaborating with EV charger manufacturer companies in India and outside to provide EV charger availability sensors according to respective EV charger’s OEM standardizations and integration requirements.
According to Sarang Mokashi, Co-founder & Director-Products at Techprom IoT, it was easy for the company to pivot parking lot occupancy sensors for EV charger availability as the startup has previously worked with EV charger companies on standard OCPP protocol for charger-server communication. TechProm IoT is a leading innovator in design, development and manufacturing of smart parking sensor equipment and IOT platform for facilitating real time data on city-wide parking lot occupancy, on-street parking guidance, and car parking space reservation.
