Facility beyond all expectations: The multifaceted Park Assist advantage.
Before Park Assist®, a parking guidance system was counted on to do only one thing: the tracking of empty spaces in order to provide parking guidance. With the advent of our camera based smart-sensor system in 2010, the industry was changed forever.
Since then, we’ve continued to improve and expand the multifunctional power and accuracy of this intelligence-driven solution. As the actionable data gathered by our system-with-a-brain enables operators to maximize space utilization and ROI, increase revenue, streamline costs, enhance safety and security, and more.
Today, there are more reasons than ever for enterprises and organizations to leverage the core business intelligence of our revolutionary guidance-and-beyond technology. Key operational advantages, which span across the gamut of industries and genres, include:
Parking search time reduced up to 44%.
Reducing fuel usage and CO2 emissions.*
Through the combination of our advanced wayfinding signage and the bright signaling LEDs on our smart-sensors, search time is reduced by as much as 44% – an average time savings of 76 seconds per parker – when a facility is over 75% occupied. For a 2,500-space garage this can result in a yearly savings of up to 52,100 gallons and 459,000 kg of related CO2 emissions.
* According to an ARUP study commissioned by Park Assist for the 2,513-space parking facility at Westfield Century City Shopping Centre in Los Angeles. Comparative data was recorded one month before and one month after the installation of a Park Assist camera based smart-sensor system.
Maximized usage through next-generation guidance.
For new and existing facilities.
Without parking guidance technology, it’s common for parking spaces to go unused during high-occupancy periods. Since parkers are quickly and efficiently led to open spaces throughout a facility, our next-generation Park Assist guidance system is crucial for obtaining maximum usage per square foot. This can save millions in construction costs for a new facility. It can also postpone or eliminate the need to expand or replace an existing facility.
Verified through precise global monitoring.
Our advanced camera based systems exhibit a 99%+ accuracy rate. In a Park Assist installation, the core system regularly gathers a smart-sensor image from every parking space across an entire site at designated times. Using the collected data from this high- speed verification process, Park Assist system analysts regularly provide the facility manager with a detailed report – proving the accuracy of the system in a tangible way.
Using sophisticated software algorithms, all Park Assist smart-sensors across the globe are regularly verified. This enables us to immediately discover sensor issues, often before the operator-in-charge does. And to provide Park Assist system owners with a real-time alert if even a single smart-sensor goes down — anywhere in the world.
Expanded surveillance from a unique vantage point.
While our smart-sensor cameras are already identifying vehicles and monitoring occupancy, our Park Surveillance™ software extension can also capture streaming video whenever motion is detected in or around a space. Or continuously, if desired. An expanded level of security and crime deterrence that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.
Streamlined design-conscious installation.
With no disruption to daily operations.
With competing systems, you need to shut down your facility for what is a fairly complex installation. By contrast, a Park Assist smart-sensor system is quickly installed, section by section, with no disruption and minimal effect on day-to-day operations.
