Creating A Smarter Solution For Parking Management And Enforcement

Creating A Smarter Solution For Parking Management And Enforcement

Business Challenge

Local government organizations typically report high costs associated with parking meters tracking from the cost of their labor force to the lost revenue in not catching meter violations. Agencies needed the ability to do “on demand” billing for parking while reducing their overall cost structure.

Solution

Digi Wireless Design Services worked with the customer to create an intelligent parking meter that enables cloud-based violation detection and payment. Designed for extreme weather environments (-40° C to 70° C range), vandal deterrence and regulatory compliance (ADA, ETL/CSA), this solution was created to read the license plates of parked cars to optimize violation management.

The metering system is integrated into the DOT database and has individual asset recognition capabilities and comes with remote software updates & debugging. The system was designed to issue tickets on-site when time expires on parked cars enabling the citizens to pay at the station.

Results

Intelligent parking meter that enables cloud-based violation detection and payment which has led to municipalities reporting up to a 40% increase in revenue collection by automating the meter and violation payments process.
