Park Assist Transforms Parking at Auburn University
CHESHIRE, CT – August 13th, 2020 – Park Assist has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Auburn University. Located in Auburn, Alabama, it spans across 1,840 acres and has grown to be one of the largest universities in the South. Park Assist’s M4 camera-based smart-sensor PGS and Wayfinding Signage will be installed in several garages across campus. Executed with partner, FoPark, they will be the first parking guidance systems utilized on a university campus in Alabama.
Auburn University’s garages were frequently overcapacity, increasing traffic and causing students and visitors unnecessary frustration as they wasted valuable time searching for available parking, rather than reaching their destination. Park Assist’s smart-sensing M4 PGS will help to remove these common challenges from the parking journey by quickly and effortlessly guiding visitors to open parking spaces. Upon entering the facility, the color-coded LED light-ring indicators on each M4 sensor will direct visitors to open spots. Turning from red to green when spaces become vacant, these lights specify which parking bays are available, decreasing drivers’ search and park times, and smoothing traffic flow in the facility.
Additionally, Wayfinding Signage located at the garage entrances displays the number of available spaces at various levels in the facility. This continually updated guidance information enables parkers to decide on the best location to park at any given moment, removing confusion from the parking experience and allowing visitors to easily and swiftly arrive at their desired destination.
FoPark and Auburn University were eager to partner with an experienced provider for their first PGS deployment on campus. They chose Park Assist due to its proven reputation as a leader and innovator in camera-based parking guidance.
“We are excited to work with FoPark to launch the first Parking Guidance System on a University campus in Alabama. We look forward to simplifying the parking experience for the Auburn University community as we continue to revolutionize campus-wide parking technology.” – Thomas Alexander, National Channel Manager.
Park Assist’s system has already been installed at the University’s 4-level stadium parking garage and, this fall, the installation will begin on two additional parking facilities on campus.
