Smart parking guidance system proposed
SC Indoor parking sensors: parking guidance with License Plate Recognition and video surveillance in every bay
135 SC Indoor parking sensors were installed. These camera-based sensors provide license plate recognition at each parking space of every parked vehicle, video surveillance as well as vehicle detection. 65 ID2 parking sensors which control 2 spaces each and 74 ID4 sensors which do the same with 4 spaces each.
Quercus Technologies’ SC Indoor parking sensors are able to locate parking spaces available and send this information to the BirdWatch parking management software. This is how the parking operator has real-time knowledge of everything that is happening in and around the car park thanks to this smart parking guidance system and its information management platform.
Signage & Car finding system
It is because of these camera-based parking sensors that vehicle owners can check their vehicle location at the car kiosk, also provided by Quercus Technologies. Digital parking signs guide drivers into the premises and display real-time information about available parking on each aisle. This information is generated by means of the BirdWatch parking system, which then provides detail of the parking situation at any given time.
All the data is collected by the different devices and it is managed and made available in an orderly and accessible way by BirdWatch parking suite, also in the form of reports. The software suite facilitates real-time decision making, and an extremely high level of security and control over everything happening in the parking.
