Automated Parking Guidance Systems: The Next Big Thing
Automated parking guidance systems promise to reduce carbon emissions, enhance customer service, and increase capacity. They can also help customers find their cars while allowing operators to charge different rates based on where the cars are parked. This session will provide an overview of automated parking guidance systems, including benefits, challenges, where they've been installed, how they work, and how well they're working. It will look at current installations to gauge their success and future potential.
After participating in this webinar you will be able to:
1. Understand the three basic types of parking guidance systems (facility, level, space).
2. Learn how to use dynamic signage to communicate real-time information.
3. Be exposed to creative uses of parking guidance systems technology.
