Parking made smart
Technological developments are enabling automatic parking payment systems to carry out much more than their basic function, bringing significant benefits to the managers of the services.
In the parking industry, the automatic pay station represents the key element in the systems and reflects the evolution of the technology.
It is very important that it includes all the main specifications requested from the market in terms of functionality, reliability and aesthetics. But there are some extra features that are always more common on projects (i.e. demanding shopping mall-type parking):
- The ability to dispense RFID paper tickets or RFID cards for transport systems;
- The potential for parking lots to act as an effective way of contributing to the reduction of city traffic and pollution through being set up as park-and-ride services and encouraging use of other modes of transport;
- The ability to interact with end-users to supply additional services.
In this instance, automatic pay stations could act like a real kiosk to issue and update loyalty cards, update personal data, redeem points, load money on RFID/magnetic cards acting like electronic wallets, re-charge card, pay bills.
