Portland International Airport Chooses Park Assist’s M4 Smart-Sensor Parking Guidance System
NEW YORK, NY – October 4, 2018 – Park Assist has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Portland International Airport. Located in Portland, Oregon, Portland International is a joint civil-military airport, serving international and domestic flights for both passenger and cargo airlines. The PGS project involves replacing the existing ultrasonic sensors and replacing them with Park Assist’s proprietary M4 camera-based smart sensor technology. The system will monitor and guide airport visitors to over 2,650 covered and nearly 650 uncovered spaces in the parking garage. The new installation is designed to elevate the customer experience by guiding drivers to the nearest available spaces with digital directional signage.
Park Assist’s M4 camera-based system uses integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology to help Portland International visitors easily find their car upon re-entry into the lot with Park Assist’s Find Your Car™ feature. The software will be integrated into a mobile app so that visitors can easily locate their vehicle by entering their license plate number.
The installed system will also include Park Assist’s Park Alerts™ software feature in their PGS in order to effectively monitor space utilization. Park Alerts™ allows parking management to define and enforce parking policies by providing them with either time-based alerts or license plate-based alerts upon a violation.
Park Assist will be working with the general contractor Highpoint to ensure a smooth transition to the new PGS system. The seamless replacement of the prior PGS and installation of the M4 at Portland International Airport will begin in October this year and will be completed in the beginning of 2019. “We are thrilled to be a part of the Port of Portland’s forward thinking agenda in helping travelers get to their destinations faster and easily find their vehicles upon their return,” said Gary Neff, CEO of Park Assist.
