The University of California San Diego awarded Park Assist the Parking Guidance System for its new Osler Parking Structure
LA JOLLA, CA – January 7th, 2019: The University of California San Diego awarded Park Assist the Parking Guidance System (PGS) for its new Osler Parking Structure. Over the next few years, UC San Diego will be expanding campus parking facilities and Osler is the first of three M4 system installations.
UC San Diego was originally searching for an ultrasonic PGS for new structures until learning about the advantages of camera-based smart sensor systems. The university decided to invest in Park Assist’s patented M4 system because it offered more valuable features and benefits.
To ensure a seamless, efficient parking experience, UC San Diego was interested in Park Assist’s digital signage that displays space availability as well as in guiding drivers to different parking zones. Park Assist’s Find Your Car™ feature directs visitors to their cars when they return to the structure. Visitors will be able to find their vehicles by entering their license plate numbers into a future web portal, a benefit made possible by Park Assist’s integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology.
UC San Diego also included Park Assist’s Park Alerts™ software feature in their PGS system in order to effectively monitor space utilization and enforce policies. Park Alerts™ will notify parking compliance staff of any parking policy violations by offering either time-based or license-plate-based alerts.
“We are excited to deploy our M4 solution in the San Diego area through our relationship with UC San Diego. UC San Diego has been well known for its commitment to innovation and excellence on campus and we are overjoyed to be a part of their vision in the new Osler Parking Structure.” – Vince Balsamo, General Manager – North America.
