Omaha Airport Authority Selects Park Assist M4 Parking Guidance System for Eppley Airfield
Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska has been outfitted with Park Assist’s M4 camera based parking guidance system (PGS) as part of an improvement plan approved by the Omaha Airport Authority. Eppley Airfield is the second airport in the U.S. with a camera based PGS, joining Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Both airports have installed Park Assist’s proprietary M4 camera based, smart sensor systems.
Park Assist’s M4 system has been deployed in the existing parking garage to effortlessly and quickly guide drivers to available spaces. Park Assist also installed an outdoor vehicle detection system to direct drivers to open spaces in the airport’s two surface lots. In total, Omaha travelers will enjoy guidance to more than 7,000 parking spaces at the airport.
The M4 system experience begins with roadway signage with real-time parking availability displayed leading into the property so parkers can determine where to go ahead of time. Level-count digital signage at the entrance of the garage indicates the number of available spaces per level. When entering the garage, colored sensors and additional directional signage throughout the garage guide drivers to the nearest available space. The Park Assist Find Your Car™ feature is now available on the new flyOMA smartphone app, which allows travelers to locate their vehicle upon returning to the parking garage.
Dave Roth, Deputy Executive Director at Omaha Airport Authority noted, “The intent of these upgrades to our parking options is to improve the customer experience and overall parking efficiency at Eppley Airfield.”
“We are honored that the Omaha Airport Authority selected our camera based M4 smart-sensor PGS system as part of their commitment to delivering an exceptional customer experience. Our technology provides Omaha’s Eppley Airfield travelers with a stress free, easy parking experience along with reduced traffic congestion,” said Gary Neff, Park Assist’s CEO.
