Streamlining traffic flow in real time while improving the parking experience
A typical city has numerous garages and surface lots spread out across its jurisdiction. Diverse systems, including Parking Access & Revenue Control Systems (PARCS) and other revenue management technology, also exist across this network of facilities. All of which makes the communication of real-time parking availability a distinct challenge.
At Park Assist, our ability to provide a cohesive cloud-based solution for citywide guidance is a major advantage for any sizable metropolis. Built on our revolutionary INX data-driven platform, each tailored installation is a robust and flexible solution that aggregates real-time occupancy data from a variety of disparate systems and sources.
Using the aggregated data, INX simultaneously broadcasts citywide parking availability through a variety of real-time information touchpoints. These can include digital signage on highways, roads, and garage entrances throughout a city. This information can also be communicated via a city’s official website, or through a mobile app using our open application programming interface (API).
Complete parking guidance solutions tailored to each city’s needs
When municipal garages are underutilized, it results in overtaxed street parking and extra traffic congestion. It can also lead to premature expansion/construction to compensate for the parking system’s overall inefficiency. With our solution-oriented approach, Park Assist can craft a customized fit-for-purpose system by synthesizing multiple types of technologies into a single, unified platform. The key elements we deploy, based on a city’s current technology, include:
Cloud-based data aggregation
Our cloud-based INX platform can be synchronized with existing PARCS equipment to pull parking counts from individual sites. The aggregated real-time data from these multiple systems is processed via a central server, then transmitted to the city’s website, digital signage, and mobile apps.
Tiered and reserved parking with Business Development+
Available with a Premium Subscription, our Business Development+ API package is designed to further boost revenue and profitability through tiered and frictionless parking, reserved and permit parking — along with fine-detail data and insights you can use to heighthen the customer experience and brand loyalty.
Our S2 Outdoor Surface Lot System
Built on our game-changing M-Series technology, this advanced camera-based guidance system is an unprecedented advance for outdoor surface lots. The high-perched cameras in an S2 installation take an omniscient view to monitor multiple bays — collecting video and rich data that drives the core intelligence of the system. Able to provide both sitewide guidance and advanced security, an S2 installation can be easily integrated with existing surveillance systems.
For garages and lots that lack vehicle-counting equipment, Park Assist can install a count system. Providing availability data by garage, surface lot, and parking level, this count system feeds the central server that connects with the city’s digital signage, website, and mobile apps.
Yet another option is Park Assist’s revolutionary M5 smart-sensor. This “sensor with a brain” is able to stream a wealth of images, video, and rich data to the core system server. This valuable information – including data for unique vehicle visits and evolving frequency trends – is used to track behaviors and usage patterns across a garage or a portfolio of facilities, while providing unprecedented system-wide control.
