A USER-FRIENDLY PARKING SYSTEM FOR SMART CITIES

by Manat Banerjee Digital Content Artist

Traditional parking operations suffer from many shortcomings. A smart parking system can address drawbacks like inefficiency and the requirement for dedicated on-site manpower.

 Smart parking systems can transform how commuters park their vehicles using advanced technology. By employing real-time monitoring, data analysis, reports, filters, smart alerts, and inspection tools, NEC India empowers parking operators and management to have complete control and visibility over their parking facilities through the Application Dashboard.

One of the standout features is its versatility in accommodating various parking scenarios. Whether it's short-term parking for quick visits, contract parking for long-term arrangements, or even offline operations during network outages, the system seamlessly adapts to different situations. This adaptability ensures that parking facilities remain operational and accessible to customers, irrespective of unexpected circumstances.

The integration of technology in the smart parking system enables real-time monitoring of hardware devices. This functionality allows parking operators to monitor the real-time status and performance of sensors, boom barriers, loop detectors, self-kiosks, handheld ticketing machines, and variable message signs. With instant visibility into these devices, operators can proactively address any issues, ensuring smooth operations and providing a seamless parking experience for consumers.

The system also offers a range of access methods to cater to different user preferences and requirements. These include RFID/NFC-based access, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-based access, license plate recognition (LPR)-based access, and QR code, reverse QR code, and barcode access. The system ensures convenience and user-friendliness by providing multiple access options, allowing consumers to choose the most suitable method for their parking needs.

To further enhance the consumer experience, the top IT company in the industry has developed an Operator App (Android-based Handheld Ticketing System) and Consumer Interfaces (Android and iOS-based Consumer applications). The Consumer Apps provide users with features such as searching for available parking spaces, navigating to desired locations, checking real-time availability through bay-sensor status, pre-booking parking spots, and making online payments for both pre-paid and post-paid parking.

The smart parking system also goes beyond traditional parking operations by integrating value-added services. Users can request additional services such as car wash, maintenance, and electric charging points through the consumer application.
