Park Assist awarded Parking Guidance System project for San Antonio International Airport
Park Assist has been awarded the Parking Guidance System project for San Antonio International Airport- Long Term Garage in San Antonio, Texas. The airport is the main international airport in the Greater San Antonio area and serves more than 10 million travelers each year. Park Assist’s M4 Parking Guidance System will be installed into the Long Term Garage, which spans across 5 levels and contains more than 5,400 parking spaces.
San Antonio International Airport chose to implement Park Assist’s M4 PGS with features such as Park Finder, Park Alerts, and Park Surveillance. The M4 camera-based smart-sensor PGS is used to help quickly and effortlessly guide visitors to available parking spaces. The patented, camera-based technology guides customers upon entry to vacant spots using color coded, smart-sensors, reducing dwell time and getting customers to their gates faster. Upon return, travelers will easily be able to locate their vehicle using Park Assist’s Park Finder integrated with a Mobile API. Customers simply enter their license plate number and Park Assist’s M4 system quickly searches the database to find the car’s exact location using License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology. Parking management will also be able to ensure compliance with the Airport’s parking policies by deploying Park Assist’s software product, Park Alerts, which provides automated alert signals to parking management when a vehicle has been improperly parked. Park Surveillance is an extension of the camera based smart-sensor that captures streaming video whenever motion is detected in or around a space. Captured streaming video helps manage risk for the facility owner and provides customers peace of mind while away from their vehicle.
San Antonio International Airport is an existing client and has Park Assist’s M4 Camera-based PGS installed in their Short Term Garage and because of its reliability and accuracy, decided to extend the M4 system into its long term garage. Park Assist’s technology is designed to simplify the overall parking process, and is expected to help San Antonio Airport to continue to fulfill its objective to enhance customer experience through an elevated parking experience The installation will begin in May 2019 and is expected to be completed in December of 2019.
“We are looking forward to once again partnering with San Antonio International Airport to provide travelers with a timely, simplified and stress-free parking experience.” – said Vince Balsamo, Park Assist’s General Manager, North America.
