Frogparking gaining momentum in the USA with future focused technology

 

 

 

Environmentally friendly, wireless, solar charged sensors are still the way to go for businesses who want accurate parking guidance in outdoor parking lots, says Frogparking CEO, Shareena Sandbrook.

 

 

The complete provider in indoor, rooftop, and outdoor parking guidance, Frogparking’s sensors use the latest in vehicle detection technology and are proven over nine years in the field to be the market-leader in the parking guidance industry.

 

“There have been some inaccurate and misleading statements to media in recent days, so I think it is important to set the record straight and clear up any confusion,” says Sandbrook.

 

“The record of our outdoor wireless sensor speaks for itself. We’ve been successfully installing the sensor for over nine years now. They’re installed at universities, shopping malls, airports, and in cities in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. We consistently see 99% detection accuracy at these sites.

 

“Each device uses three methods of detecting when a vehicle is parked in a bay, giving the sensor unrivalled accuracy. There are over 20,000 of our wireless outdoor sensors currently active in the field. One of our city clients in New Zealand has been using the sensor for nine years now and we have only been seeing battery replacements in the past six months.

 

“Indoors, results from our new patented laser sensor show. With over 8,000 now in the field since launching the product mid-last year, feedback from our customers and data from our system shows detection accuracy is around 99%.

 

“Components are all installed above the driving aisle in a parking building to ensure the building’s aesthetic is not harmed with lots of clunky gear. One guidance light per four parking bays on average, also means we aren’t lighting the parking building up like a christmas tree,” says Sandbrook.

 

Parking guidance provides a frictionless experience for customers looking to park at a busy shopping center, airport, university, or city. However, if the system was inaccurate because of inferior technology, the opposite can occur and customers may become frustrated by being misguided around a parking lot.

 

“Our customers choose Frogparking because our technology is market-leading and we are constantly innovating to ensure the highest accuracy for our customers. Across the market, we consistently see technology that is inaccurate or delivering false data,” says Sandbrook.

 

“For example, our testing shows Camera-based parking guidance technology can deliver inaccuracies in detection due to sunstrike, from water, or because camera lenses constantly require maintenance. Cameras can also be tricked by people walking through parking buildings, or by passing shopping trolleys or service vehicles.

 

“Customers who have previously used these systems and have replaced them with Frogparking’s superior system also tell us the installation and calibration process is lengthy, leading to a costly installation project while valuable parking bays may be taken out of action.

 

“Frogparking is also HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, UL, and PCI compliant, so our customers and all parking users know they’re safe with us,” says Sandbrook.

Quercus Technologies: Deep Roots, New Leaves

Quercus Technologies: Deep Roots, New Leaves

 

 

 

Just some weeks ago Quercus Technologies is celebrating its 20 years anniversary and takes stock on the situation of the company, its trajectory and perspectives for the future. Quercus began developing engineering projects for the industrial sector, in particular in relation to industrial automatization and quality control by means of artificial vision. Today, Quercus has become an international company, specialized in manufacturing LPR equipment in the parking guidance sector and has projects in more than 70 countries.

 

 

Quercus has become an international benchmark in its field: it is a model of success history, of a company that prevails thanks to the vision of its leaders, the effort of the staff and the struggle for innovation. Far from having arrived at the end of the way, Quercus is expanding:

How keep on growing at the present time as we have done until now?

How keep on growing, adapting to changes, without adulterating the essence that has allowed the company to get to be what it is today?

 

The company has experienced a period of transition in order to be able to answer these questions, for, briefly, continuing being faithful to its mission without going stale using a formula that worked well in the past. As a result of that process of reflection and adaptation, Quercus has created Mobility Division in order to harness the solution of parking guidance based on the sensor by camera in the market. This division commercializes exclusively guidance and mobility projects through a different sales channel than the one used habitually by Quercus for its OEM products. For the commercialization of those, Quercus has created Detection Division.

 

Detection Division is direct result of more than twenty years of experience in License Plate Recognition, continuing a business model that has turned Quercus into the company it is now: focusing in the making and commercializing of the most advanced and reliable OEM products that the client needs, while keeping a practical and efficient approach through the regular sales channel. A way of remaining faithful to the roots and the origin of the company.

 

Mobility Division reflects the need of broadening horizons in order boost in the market parking guidance solution based on camera sensors. Using the experience and know-how of Quercus Technologies, Mobility Division commercializes comprehensive and customized projects of parking guidance and mobility systems. They are the new leaves, Quercus’ stake in the future.

 

 

Quercus stays strong, facing the challenges without fear and with new proposals and parking guidance solutions. Quercus would like to sum up this new phase in a sentence that refers as much to the name as to the history of the company: “New leaves grow because we stand on our Roots” remembering to us that for new projects to develop it is necessary to always remember the origins.

Circontrol presents its comprehensive solution for eMobility in car parks at EVS32

 

 

 

In the exhibition Circontrol will present its EV charging solutions including Master-Slave solution and Cosmos, its new cloud-based platform for monitoring and reporting

 

 

Viladecavalls, 13thMay 2019

Circontrol participates in EVS32 that will take place in Lyon from 19 May to 22 May 2019, the premier event for academic, government and industry professionals involved in eMobility technologies. This symposium brings together science, institutions and industry with a150 exhibitors, 2000 delegates, 160 lectures sessions and 5000 visitors offering an event both academic and business oriented.

This year’s edition EVS32 will focus in eMobility as a core concern and how it will affect both our lifestyles and our economy facing major changes, not just in mobility but in the related businesses. Having this in mind Circontrol will present itself as more than an EV charger manufacturer, showing its solutions to operate several points and, specially, its comprehensive solution for car parks, a sector where Circontrol has an important expertise. At the exhibition Circontrol will also show its wide range of EV chargers adapted to all market segments’ need that include AC Wallboxes, AC posts and DC Quick chargers.

The most comprehensive solution for car parks

Every day more drivers will need to charge their EVs at work, in a condominium or in a shopping mall. Besides, there are some public regulations requiring the installation of charging points in car parks, such a European directive. This new reality will represent a few challenges for car park operators, fleet managers, condominium administrators.

Circontrol’s 16 years of experience designing solutions for the efficient parking and 10 years manufacturing EV chargers make Circontrol the best company to face these challenges and design a comprehensive solution that includes EV chargers, CirPark Guidance System, intelligent LED lighting and Load Management and monitoring solutions.

With all these technologies integrated all these processes are easier. You can indicate an EV charging bay with a bay sensor and automatically report faulty chargers with an Eccu-Park controller. Combining both devices you can get an automatic notification if there is an improper use if an EV parking bay and also signalise these bays by a blinking or a changing colour of the sensor.

Mobility in the car park can also be improved by adding displays that help locating the EV parking bay, check its availability and guide the driver. And if it is also integrated intelligent LED lighting system, it allows an automatic lighting regulation when a vehicle is detected or when EV charging session has started or stopped.

More than EV chargers, solutions

In a car park and in other facilities there will be several charging points operating in one location and this situation represents some challenges such as avoiding blackouts due to grid overloading, reducing installation and operational costs and make management more efficient by collecting data of your charging network.

Circontrol offers different solutions to face these challenges. One of them is Master-Slave, the most cost-effective solution of having multiple charging points controlled trough a single master unit. Moreover, it allows dynamic load management which enables automatic distribution of available power of your grid connection.

On EVS32 Circontrol will present Cosmos, its new cloud-based platform that collect and store data from a specific set of EV chargers for monitoring and reporting. This platform has an intuitive and user-friendly dashboard that allows making customisable reports, including invoice’s simulation, create a charging network map, un(subscribe) users, reduce the fault resolution time through a log display. Besides, Cosmos is compatible with chargers from other brands as long as they comply with OCPP 1.6J protocol.

About Circontrol

Circontrol is a company founded in 1997 with headquarters in Viladecavalls (Barcelona).  Its parking division designs and manufacture a global solution for efficient parking (guidance system, LED Lighting, energetic efficiency). Its emobility division manufactures a wide range of EV charging solutions that covers all market needs: domestic charge, slow charge (AC) and quick charge (DC).

MeterFeeder – Case Study: St. Marys, PA Parking

May 09, 2019

 

 

 

MeterFeeder – Case Study: St. Marys, PA Parking

 

 

 

The Problem

The City of St. Marys, Pennsylvania has spent the last few years using only physical parking meters. The municipality had a difficult time tracking payments, parking usage, and ticket payments. The old system was entirely physical and required a lot of manual data entry from the city employees. City residents were frustrated with the antiquated coin-operated meters and lack of digital payment options. The city noted that many residents and business owners receive tickets on a nearly daily basis. This created compliance issues as well as parker frustration.

 

MeterFeeder’s Solution

In early 2019, St. Marys consulted MeterFeeder to provide a new all-digital parking system for the municipality. The solution provided included implementation of MeterFeeder’s parking app, enforcement tools, management interface, support for a permit system, and support for MeterFeeder’s patent-pending Pay-By-Vehicle fleet management solution.

The MeterFeeder app allows drivers to pay for parking with digital payments via their smartphone in any of the St. Mary’s parking zones. The app uses geo-location technology to determine where a driver is parking to automatically place them in the right zones.

The enforcement solution for the officers of St Marys includes an Android tablet and rugged bluetooth printer. Officers are able to check to see if a vehicle has paid for parking, and issue tickets easily if they haven’t.

City managers are able to use the management tools to track parking payments, ticket payments, issued tickets, voided tickets, leave comments on cases, and create daily, weekly, or monthly reports to monitor revenue and compliance.

In the future, St. Marys is considering using MeterFeeder’s technology to create new parking zones that are digital payment or digital permit only.

 

Reception and Results

            In May of 2019, MeterFeeder reached out to St. Marys PR specialist Hannah Brock and Police Chief Nicklas to get some feedback about how the changes have been performing the past 3-4 months. Here is what we learned”

  • In just 3 months, 20% of all parking transactions were going through the MeterFeeder app. This number is trending upward.
  • Over 50% of all issued tickets are paid through the MeterFeeder app or on MeterFeeder.com/ticket. This new convenience has reduced strain on the municipality and made residents happy.
  • MeterFeeder is used by many government employees and local business owners. Business owners recommend it to their clientele.
  • People who used to habitually get tickets on a daily or weekly basis are now no longer getting tickets.
    • This ticket revenue has been replaced by daily parking revenue.
  • St Marys is now able to track things like revenue, tickets issued, and tickets paid thanks to the management interface and reporting tools. Previously St Marys had no way to keep track of these things in such a robust and quick way.

 

Conclusion

            St Marys’ on-boarding period is now over, and they are now moving into month five of using MeterFeeder. The city and its daily parkers are very happy with the improvements made by MeterFeeder. Meterfeeder and the City of St Marys will now begin pushing more marketing material and PR across the city to let citizens know that MeterFeeder is the new, better way to pay for parking.

FLEXEPARK: PRIVATE PARKING LOTS IN BLOOMINGTON NOW AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC USE

 

 

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., May 9, 2019 – FlexePark, a web-based parking service that creates public spaces from private lots, has a convenient parking lot now available – marked with newly installed signage – on Kirkwood Avenue in Bloomington. While FlexePark first launched in Indianapolis in 2017, this new FlexePark-partnered lot is among the first of its kind in the area.

 

 

FlexePark was developed as a solution to the lack of public parking options in metro areas. Through FlexePark, local businesses generate extra income by making their unused parking available to the community, usually after business hours. Drivers simply scan the QR code on a FlexePark space sign to securely pay the flat parking fee. The patent-pending technology has been recognized as a finalist for the 2019 Parking Today Awards and 2019 TechPoint Mira Awards.

 

The Kirkwood lot, located at 121 E. Kirkwood Ave., opened in December 2018. Twenty parking spaces are available from 5 a.m. to 4 a.m. for $6. Other FlexePark lots include 800 S. College Ave., with 15 spaces available from 7 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. for $2.50, and 28 spaces are available at First United Methodist Church, 299 East 3rd St., for $6 from 5 a.m. to 4 a.m. Monday through Saturday.

 

“We are very excited to support this new Kirkwood parking in Bloomington,” says FlexePark

co-founder Michael Dowden. “This property is a great example of our goal of helping businesses maximize the use of their underutilized parking areas. By making these ad-hoc parking spaces available, local businesses benefit from the expanded parking options.”

 

Business owners interested in becoming a FlexePark partner can learn more at flexepark.com/start.

 

 

About FlexePark

FlexePark is user-friendly solution to the dilemma of struggling to find parking options while many potential spaces are kept unavailable. Unlike other shared parking options, FlexePark focuses on usability and accessibility without requiring users to download an app or reserve parking spots in advance.

PARKVIA REMAINS IN POLE POSITION AT LODZ AIRPORT

PARKVIA REMAINS IN POLE POSITION AT LODZ AIRPORT

 

 

 

European airport parking leader, ParkVia, has strengthened its partnership with Polish airport, Lodz, following a successful six-year collaboration.

 

 

Having worked with the team at Lodz Airport on the marketing and online distribution of its parking products since 2013, ParkVia was commissioned in 2015 to build and deploy the airport’s own pre-booking engine, which has created a streamlined reservation process for customers looking for parking online.

 

Effective collaboration between the two companies has seen impressive growth in booking numbers over the six-year term, underlining the increasing customer appetite for reserved parking options online.

 

Visitors to the airport can choose to park within the grounds of the airport, close to the terminal building at P1.

 

The parking area is very well-lit, is completely ring-fenced with a barrier entry, and is comprehensively insured. The car park is open daily during the airport operating hours, is monitored around-the-clock with CCTV and is well protected.

 

Robert Makowski, Head of Route & Business Development at Lodz Airport, said:

 

“With 31 European capitals within the range of regional flights from Lodz Airport, the potential to capture passenger interest in pre-bookable parking is vast, which is why effective marketing is essential.

 

“As the airport remains in a phase of intensive development, it’s important that we continue to build upon partnerships that assist us in delivering a more comprehensive journey experience for our passengers. We’re delighted to be pushing forward with our joint collaboration with ParkVia and look forward to another successful year.”

 

The third largest city in Poland, Lodz – the former textile industry empire – is fast becoming a must-see destination for travellers looking for a cost-effective break away from the usual over-populated tourist spots.

 

City of Lodz have been awarded “Best Value Destination 2019” by Lonely Planet and one of the cheapest travel destinations for 2019. As a host of FIFA U20 World Cup this year, Lodz will be also hosting “Green EXPO” in 2024 (World Horticultural Exhibition) and European University Games in 2022.

 

Earlier this year, ParkVia announced a collaboration with its second Polish airport – Katowice International Airport – expanding its network further for users across Europe’s 9th largest country.

Schreiner PrinTrust at PARKEN 2019, booth NORD B51: The Latest RFID Solutions for Smart Parking

May 08, 2019

 

Schreiner PrinTrust at PARKEN 2019, booth NORD B51

The Latest RFID Solutions for Smart Parking

 

Oberschleissheim, May, 8th 2019 –Contactless entering and exiting, automatic billing and app-based supporting services—this is what the future of parking looks like. At PARKEN in Wiesbaden from June 5 to 6, Schreiner PrinTrust as a leading provider of RFID solutions for smart parking will showcase its latest portfolio of solutions for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI): RFID windshield solutions for on-street parking, off-street parking and Third License Plates for official vehicle identification. As the highlight to be featured at its booth, the certified specialist for security and authentication will demonstrate how the total project can be delivered by a one-stop shop: from the selection and production of suitable RFID labels through to cards and personalized mailers.

The PARKEN trade show covers the entire breadth of the parking industry. Schreiner PrinTrust as a total solutions provider offers a wide variety of products in this fast-growing market with a major impact on the everyday lives of many people, and thus is actively involved in shaping the future:

Labels Specifically for Smart Parking and AVI Applications 

Along with increasing mobility the worldwide traffic volume keeps growing, as well as the related customer expectations. Especially bottlenecks such as entrances to parking garages and toll gates call for solutions that accelerate traffic flow. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global enables contactless Automatic Vehicle Identification ( AVI) in diverse applications. Reliable access control and electronic billing of distances driven on toll roads are thus efficiently supported. In the “Secure” version, an encrypted solution for applications with high security demands is available as well.

Applications in the area of smart parking make special demands on the RFID label. Schreiner PrinTrust’s ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF satisfies these requirements because it was specifically developed for AVI use. It is highly resistant against heat and sunlight, which is essential for long life on the inside of windshields. Users benefit from the high UHF RFID performance of the chip. Due to invisibly integrated, full-surface light protection, the chip is fully functional even when exposed to direct sun irradiation—unlike many other solutions available on the market. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF is produced in Schreiner Group’s high-secure ISO 14298 certified environment in Oberschleissheim.

Convenient Off-Street-Parking

When drivers approach a parking garage gate in their vehicles the barrier automatically opens via the wireless technology of the chip in the ((rfid))-Windshield Label applied to the inside of the front window. The fees to be paid are calculated by capturing the entry and exit times and charged to the customer based on the payment data stored in the IT system of the parking facility operator.

Efficient On-Street Parking Checks

In on-street parking, the ((rfid))-Windshield Label and its counterpart, the ((rfid))-Parking Permit, enhance efficiency as well. With the ((rfid))-Parking Permit, vehicles can automatically and conveniently be identified on the outside in a contactless process from a distance of a few meters, which enormously reduces the verification effort. Due to RFID, data transmission works without direct line of sight. This verification can be complemented by a direct visual check based on the printed image and security features.

All Components from a One-Stop-Shop

As a one-stop-shop Schreiner PrinTrust not only offers a diverse product portfolio of labels specifically developed for parking and AVI. In parking applications, the corresponding access media have to be distributed to a large number of consumers.

For these purposes, Schreiner PrinTrust offers the delivery of the total project from a single source – from the selection and production of suitable RFID labels through to individual mailers to consumers. This massively reduces the coordination requirements for the customer and ensures the high quality of all the components.

Partner PAV Card will be featured as a co-exhibitor at Schreiner PrinTrust’s booth. The experts from PAV Card will showcase mailing solutions, IT services and card products.

Utmost Security for Official Applications: ((rfid))-3rd License Plate

Schreiner PrinTrust offers suitable AVI solutions for official applications as well. Vehicles without proper registrations cause massive damage worldwide—from tax losses to vehicle thefts through to higher security risks such as circumvention of access controls. These issues call for effective measures to deter fraud and abuse, and to provide faster proof of illegal practices: Schreiner PrinTrust’s Third License Plate is a security label affixed to the inside of the windshield. It complements the conventional metal license plates that can easily be stolen, copied and illegally reused. With the Third License Plate, due to its location in the vehicle’s interior and its additional protective mechanisms against tampering and counterfeiting, this cannot readily be done. The self-adhesive seal bears the vehicle data issued by the vehicle registration authority and may be used to cover additional applications such as proof of insurance, proof of taxes and fees paid, parking permission, toll or access controls.

 

About Schreiner PrinTrust

Schreiner PrinTrust, a business unit of Schreiner Group GmbH & Co. KG based in Oberschleissheim near Munich, Germany, develops and markets specific functional and security labels for system suppliers and service providers focused on identification and authentication solutions. The unit’s activities are centered on customers such as card manufacturers, RFID system integrators and suppliers of products for government authorities. Schreiner PrinTrust’s portfolio is focused on customized self-adhesion products and services for PIN protection, NFC-Stickers for contactless payment, RFID solutions for automatic vehicle identification, as well as products such as vignettes, stickers and transfer seals serving as proof of payment of official fees or as access authorization.
