Reinventing a classic product

Taxomex is Switzerland’s leading parking meter manufacturer. The company’s bestselling meter is getting on in years and needs to be replaced by a new model. It should match the old model in terms of ruggedness and service life while also accommodating digitalisation. Taxomex needs a powerful partner for this endeavour with resources and expertise in industrial design, mechanics and electronics as well as the development of firmware and web portals.

Development in an interdisciplinary team

In preparatory workshops, Zühlke taps into Taxomex’s and Digitalparking’s know-how and sets out the requirements for the new product. The project managers subsequently plan the development step by step and call upon the specialists as required from different disciplines.

 

Simple data evaluation

The newly developed TOMeco parking meter is ready for the networked future. With the latest generation of Taxomex meters, operators can call up data such as parking space occupancy or system status via Digitalparking’s web portal. This is achieved by connecting the meters to the Internet with 4G technology.
