Parking operators and parking customers alike benefit from the elimination of the ticket through faster entry, exit and the elimination of ticket loss.
Ticketless parking at a glance
The nine steps in chronological order
Approaching the entry barrier
The parking customer approaches the closed barrier at the entrance to the parking garage.
Use of LPR cameras at the entrance
A camera for license plate recognition scans the license plate and links this information with other data such as the time of entry.
The advantage for the parking customer: In conventional parking management systems, a paper ticket would have to be removed from the lane device and stored securely. It must not be lost or damaged, as the time of entry is documented on it. This is no longer the case in ticketless systems.
Data storage in the cloud
The advantage for the parking lot operator is that no server has to be maintained locally and the data is protected against loss in the cloud.
Opening of the barrier
For the customer of the parking garage, there is another major advantage: since the process from the approach to the barrier opening is almost uninterrupted, fast entry is guaranteed.
The parking garage operator is protected from traffic jams during high occupancy.
Vehicle is parked
The parking customer looks for a free parking space, exits his vehicle and carries out his intended task.
Identification by license plate number
To pay, the parking customer goes to one of the pay stations and enters the first digits of his license plate number on a touch screen. He then selects his license plate.
Calculation and payment
The parking fee is calculated and displayed based on the parking duration and the applicable tariff. The customer pays the amount in cash, EC/credit card or other offered means of payment. After the payment, the waiting time starts, the customer goes to his vehicle.
Approach of the exit
As the vehicle approaches the closed barrier at the exit, the license plate is once again read and checked against the data in the cloud for a completed payment.
Automatic opening of the barrier
When approaching the barrier within the grace period, the barrier opens and releases the exit.
The exit is just as smooth as the entry. Once again, a time delay between approaching the barrier and its opening is hardly noticeable to the parking customer.
The risk of congestion at the exit is also reduced for the parking garage operator.
Increase in convenience
High realiability and no data loss
LPR cameras work with a very high detection rate. The captured data is stored securely in the cloud, protected from data loss.
Excellent price performance ratio
Less hardware in the form of lane devices, tickets and servers, and more cost-effective equipment means savings in acquisition, operation and maintenance.
