With the rising demand for private or self-owned transportation, the parking space and operating safety related issues are on the rise. To solve these issues, you need a smart device that has the answer for all. The parking counting systems combined with an advanced parking guidance system, offer scientific solutions to check such issues with an edge. It is powered by ingenious electronics and telecommunication technology, combining top features of data tracking, processing, monitoring, and retrieval to benefit the motorists. These innovative devices are, especially an advantage for parking areas of large size, such as function halls, stadiums, airports, theaters, etc.
PGI (Parking guidance and information) systems help motorist, providing much-needed information about the controlled parking area. The system provides centralized management of the entire space, monitoring all the entry and exit points of the parking lanes. The data are processed to figure out the vital specifications like the overall occupancy levels and the available space for individuals. The system displays the summarized information along with strategically placed signs, helping motorists get a clear-cut idea regarding the available spaces to park their vehicles. Thus, avoiding any kind of delay and congestion.
The performance of the parking counting system fully relies upon the accuracy of data input and communication channel. The systems assist in:-
Tracking down the number of vehicles present at the entry and exit points of the parking space.
Displaying the exact information regarding the number of available slots in each parking lane.
Generally what happens, certain changes occur in the earth’s magnetic field, with the entry or exit of a vehicle in the parking area. The changes are efficiently traced by the wireless detectors or sensors without an error, and then transmitted via radio waves to the central server. A graphical user interface allows the motorists or parking operator to read the information displayed on the board along with alarm signals against a plan view of the parking facility. The ingenious devices not only guide the incoming, outgoing, or moving motorists, but also the operators in the parking spot as well.
The vehicle counting is quickly done with the help of detectors installed below the surface or video recordings. When the vehicles enter the parking lanes, the information is instantly displayed in the form of VMS (Variable Message Sign). The VMS displays a zero or full sign, according to the occupied and available space. Motorists can make easy decisions, finding the right and comfortable space for parking their vehicles. It enhances the comfort – safety level, while reducing the stress to a great extent. Accuracy of the system is quite important, so the maintenance of the installation must be checked on a regular basis.
