Why Need Parking Guidance System (PGS)?
With the continuous increase in cars in recent years, the demand for parking lots and parking spaces is also boosting rapidly. The need for parking spaces is in short supply, especially in department stores, hypermarkets, exhibition venues, industrial areas, stations, airports, etc. It isn’t easy to find parking spaces, let alone during peak traffic hours. Another situation that also troubles car drivers is that because the underground parking lot scenes are very similar, it is easy to get lost and forget the vehicle’s parking location; this is the dilemma that most drivers have experienced. The parking guidance system can help find the parking space quickly when the car enters the parking lot; when returning to pick up the vehicle, enter the plate number on Find My Car Server, and it displays where you parked and helps you quickly get to the car. Customers save time finding parking spaces and picking up cars, thereby increasing the turnover rate of parking spaces in the parking lot, which should be a win-win result for both car drivers and the parking lot owner.
Intelligent Parking Guidance System(PGS) from ParkGuide®
ParkGuide® is a parking guidance system with dual-detection of parking space, which combines image analysis and ultrasonic detection; these are also the two current mainstream detection methods of parking space. It uses license plate recognition to check parked vehicles to prevent specific parking spaces (such as charging spaces) from being deliberately occupied. When the parking lot adopts a power-saving design and cannot recognize images due to insufficient lighting, we can use ultrasonic waves instead to detect the status of the parking space. ParkGuide® parking guidance system captures the respective advantages of the two identification methods to achieve perfect parking space management and control.
ParkGuide® is an intelligent parking guidance system integrating license plate recognition, parking space detection, automatic payment, and parking indication. It can reduce customers’ irritation looking for parking spaces in parking lots. At the same time, it provides a high-quality, high-tech parking experience and improves the safety of car owners and vehicles. Based on the core value of the business intelligence, the system automatically counts car owners’ parking behavior, preferences, and usage patterns. Relying on this statistical information to timely conduct business promotions to improve operational efficiency, revenue profit, and return on investment, and help operators manage parking spaces more effectively. ParkGuide® intelligent parking guidance system widely applies in different industries, including hypermarkets, shopping malls, airports, railway stations, large hospitals, casinos, stadiums, colleges, open office buildings, exhibition halls, corporate parks, etc. And also, it can be provided to architects, engineering consulting companies, and parking system integrators as a design reference during planning.

One of the sources of pollution that affects air quality is the exhaust gas emitted during transportation. Suppose the parking guidance can reduce the extra detour of the car to find a parking space, thereby reducing unnecessary air pollution and energy consumption. In that case, it is also a valuable added value, especially for those green companies that want to obtain a higher green star rating even more so.

How does the system work?
① Display available parking spaces
When the driver arrives, the number of available parking spaces is clearly and real-time displayed outside and at the parking lot entrance, assisting the driver in choosing a parking place or parking floor.
② Auto recognizes license plate at the entrance
The system will open the gate to allow the vehicle to enter the parking lot after the ALPR system recognizes the license plate (allowing comparison of black/white list). The driver can see the number and direction of available parking spaces at the entrance, turn, or intersection, which helps the driver determine the direction and floor to find the parking space quickly.
③ Vehicle entering gate
Two radar wave sensors are installed at the gates at the entrance and exit, and the length and width of the sensing area are set according to the width of the lane and the type of vehicles to be managed. Adopting the dual radar wave sensing method can avoid the misoperation caused by the environment; for example: pedestrians walk, the gate is opened and the vehicle does not enter but directly reverses and leaves. When the vehicle enters the gate, the radar wave trigger signal is transmitted to the fence machine and the parking management host synchronously to perform the functions of anti-smashing vehicles (people) and parking space counting. When the vehicle is triggered to the area set by the two radar wave sensors at the same time , the system will automatically deduct an empty parking space and display it on the empty parking space display immediately.
④ Detect and display parking space status
The ParkCam® parking space detection camera built-in bright/multi-color LED installs at the parking space for parking space indication. The LED color will assist the driver in finding the parking space quickly and transmitting the results to the ParkHelper® parking management server immediately.
⑤ Auto-pay system and assist find out the parking location
When drivers forget where the vehicle is parked, the CarFinder® Find My Car Server will display the possible parking location quickly even though the entered number is incomplete.
⑥ Vehicle leaves the gate
When the vehicle leaves the gate, the radar wave trigger signal is transmitted to the fence machine and the parking management host synchronously to perform anti-smashing vehicle (person) and parking space counting functions. When the vehicle triggers to the area set by the two radar wave sensors at the same time , the system will automatically add an empty parking space and display it on the empty parking space display.
