INDECT USA takes PARK ASSIST to court for anti-competitive behavior and sham lawsuit.




San Diego, CA (Oct 29, 2018)—INDECT USA, the parking industry’s leading provider of sensor-based parking guidance systems, today announces the commencement of legal action against Park Assist for anti-competitive behavior.



INDECT USA accuses Park Assist of engaging in anti-competitive behavior and knowingly initiating a sham lawsuit against San Diego Airport and Ace Parking with the sole intention of tortiously interfering with INDECT’s existing and future clients.


INDECT products do not and have never infringed on the Park Assist Patent No. 9,594,956.


“We stand by our products,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA. “We are 100 per cent confident that no patent infringement has occurred and we will not stand by while Park Assist discredits our reputation and intimidates our customers.”


INDECT takes pride in the quality of their products and the sophisticated algorithms that are used to achieve in excess of 99.5% accuracy rates with no human intervention required.


“Park Assist knows we don’t infringe their patent and that’s why they chose to sue San Diego Airport and Ace Parking instead of us,” said Fowler.


“The two systems are worlds apart,” he said. “Our sensor is completely automated. It is physically impossible to alter the detection status through manual intervention. Whereas the Park Assist camera requires human verification that a parking space is either vacant or occupied and allows external access to correct inaccurate detection.”


According to Fowler, the decision to embark on legal action was not an easy one. Litigation is extremely expensive and it can sometimes take years to get a result. However, the cost to INDECT’s reputation and business by not acting was simply too great to ignore.


“We just want an even playing field.” said Fowler.


By taking legal action, INDECT will be able to dispel the myth of patent infringement and return to their primary focus of making garages more efficient by effortlessly guiding drivers to the nearest available space.



INDECT is the leading provider of parking guidance systems. INDECT’s systems combine the most advanced parking space sensors with industry-leading data management technology to offer drivers a safer, more convenient parking experience while helping parking owners operate their parking assets more efficiently and profitably.
