City of Charles Sturt expands contactless parking technology
COVID-19 cases may be dropping across Australia, particularly in states like South Australia but that doesn’t mean there should be complacency of guidelines. Smart technology solutions that enable guideline adherence easily and cost effectively, are paramount.
Councils across Australia have had to reduce staffing and faced vast economic downfalls. So, they have had to adapt and embrace new solutions to help bolster tighter budgets, particularly when it comes to parking turnover and monitoring, all whilst keeping their employees and local community members safe.
AutoFine, inspector-less and non-contact parking technology which uses vehicle detection sensors and cameras, is an example of such progressive solutions.
Councils, such as the City of Charles Sturt in South Australia, have been quick to adopt this essential technology to not only be post pandemic prepared but invest in their economic future. The Council had already implemented AutoFine since December 2012 and have increased the capacity, covering even more parking bays than before, as of August 2020.
‘There’s been a significant shift in the way everyone operates since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect will live on. At the City of Charles Sturt, we understand the value of keeping our employees safe by utilising contactless technology where practicable,’ said Adam Filipi, Manager Public Health & Safety, City of Charles Sturt.
This inspector-less parking technology uses vehicle detection sensors and high resolution cameras, whilst effortlessly managing fines and overstays. It’s a fully automated monitoring system for on street parking which eliminates the need for manual inspecting. www.esmart21.com.au
