How Is Digital Parking Making Cities More Livable?
Now everyone is familiar that parking industry is continuously getting smarter and smarter with each passing day. Cities are adopting newly integrated and smarter technologies such as digital or say smart parking in their infrastructure. It is the best way to manage, monitor, as well as monetize the parking. As the concept of automated vehicles has gone from vision to reality, digital parking became more necessary.
The organizations develop an all-in-one packaged solution that will be able to tackle the deployment from stern to stem. The fully-integrated, comprehensive Smart parking platform which can cover parking enforcement management, in-vehicle payment, mobile apps, metering, permit management, and data management for helping the cities understand and better manage its parking infrastructure.
Works For Drivers
Take time and imagine yourself being able to direct not only to the desired destination, but exactly to the open parking space, paying your parking amount in a few tap, and know the precise location of your vehicle when you get ready to leave. Vehicles drivers would be able to get some special offers from the local merchants as well while they are in that particular area. Moreover, this will be a win situation for local businesses too.
With this technology, there would be no need to wait in the line at a booth behind some new drivers who don’t know the way to pay the meter. Now no more continuous searching for the empty parking spots. Smart parking is adopted by various cities, resulting from better traffic conditions and fewer vehicles are blocking the lanes by slowly trudging along searching for the open space.
Whereas, on the other hand, drivers will also experience the improved parking enforcement. In case, drivers grab some spots, and do not intend to pay an amount for the duration of stay of their vehicles, they can expect towing or/and swift ticketing. The code enforcement officers would have the option to see exact time for how long the vehicles have been in the spots.
Looking ahead, the automated vehicles certainly require the smarter way for determining not only where the open spots are, but also the permission to park without any risk of getting out of code. It is obvious that people don’t expect their automated vehicles to pick these up with all parking tickets over their windshields. It has been assumed that the smart parking system might one day get able to communicate with these automated vehicles as well as let them know the nearest open spots so that they can park. It also gives drivers the ability that they can remotely feed the meter by using a mobile application.
Works For Cities
Many cities are getting benefits from the smart parking technologies. Along with the knowledge of improved code enforcement, they are also able to see, in real time, the influence of parking habits on the flow of traffic.
Below given are some of the most important benefits that cities would get along with access to the product suite of IPS, Intrusion Prevention System:
Smart single-space meters
Pay-station upgrade kits
Multi-space pay stations
Smart cash collection systems
Vehicle detection sensors
Enforcement and permitting solutions
Hosted data management software along with the advanced data analytics
IPS Group’s system is considered as a complete all-in-one package and a compatible solution for the traffic problems in almost all cities. The data management system of this solution is being upgraded to match the increasing demand. In addition, to connect with the IPS' solutions, it provides data intelligence, modules, and the modern user interface for booting.
When cities get all of these facilities together, it would be easy for them to adopt as well as integrate this solution in their smart city parking strategy. Though, it also implies that after installation of this solution and everything in its place, parking is more closely attached to the system.
The bottom line of this approach is to improve the street parking condition in cities. Moreover, it also appears that the IPS Group is helping cities to achieve their digital parking goals. The smart city technologies are employed to make life convenient for the government and the citizens, alike. its cloud-based, integrated smart parking system has been built to do that.
