A complete parking system (with 1,444 spots in total) with a customised web app for parking management users, a seamless guidance system implemented in the public zone, and a guidance system with 279 parking spots.
How does the shared parking work?
Let's say you have 500 parking spots. There are 10 rental companies in your building, with about 200 employees each.
The most common system for handling this (since not everybody can park at the same time) is to use "group parking," where users are allowed to park in designated areas on a “first come, first served” basis. However, this isn't always fair as it only benefits the fastest parkers.
The solution is our Smart Parking system:
First, users make requests for parking spots in advance for a specific day.
Then the system runs a draw the day before to choose who gets parking spots the next day, filling all available spaces.
When their reservation is active, users get an email notification, and they can park without further interaction. They can also see their reservation status.
Certain users can have permanent access to a parking spot defined in the system. They should still mark themselves as absent if they won't use their spot for a specific period, like vacation. The system uses their spot in the draw while they're away.
The Smart Parking system offers various configuration options that can be tailored to suit the needs of the car park operator.
There are several parking user types handled differently.
Company user (tenant) - Tenants can park by using their:
1) Permanent parking access
2) Group access
3) Draw access
4) via their license plate + an RFD card
Company visitor - A company visitor can book a one-time reservation for 1 slot from one of the tenant companies with the possibility of entering their license plate later. After booking, they’ll receive a confirmation email with a QR code.
Public visitor - Public visitors pay for parking based on the current tariff and can use a license plate identifier or a QR code ticket. Their payment can potentially be reimbursed by the company if the visitor visits without reservation.
Residents - Residents can pre-pay permanent parking access for a specified time period with restricted parking access. They can use their license plate + QR code and buy resident parking subscription through a mobile app.
Parking Management UsersUsers of parking management system may administrate different parts of the systems and/or their own parking.
Tenant admin can:
ParkIS - Management software for the Facility Admin
Desktop application for basic system configuration and management. Used only by Facility Admin.
Web portal - Parking System Portal (PSP)
Web application used by Facility Admin, Tenant companies and users.
The guidance system consists of cameras detecting parking spots with the capability to read license plates of vehicles and visually mark free and occupied parking spots. This makes it easier to find free parking spots.
At the same time, the detected license plates are auto-registered in the portal and the vehicle info is displayed at the cash register where the visitor can find their vehicle. Mobile app users can also use the “Find My Car” feature.
