In recent years, unstaffed parking lot management systems have become increasingly popular. These systems offer advantages such as 24/7 operation, no need for human supervision, reduced labor costs, decreased error rates, and prevent an inside job. They also significantly improve safety, confidentiality, and speed for consumers entering and exiting the parking lot. In a parking lot management system, the accuracy of gate access identification is a crucial factor. However, no identification system can achieve 100% accuracy. License plate recognition is often affected by uncontrollable factors such as dirty, damaged, or counterfeit license plates and adverse weather conditions like heavy rain or snow, resulting in the inability to identify license plates correctly.
Similarly, electronic tag (UHF) recognition can reduce the system’s reliability due to its vulnerability to copying and lending. I-View’s dual recognition parking management system combines two mainstream identification technologies in parking lot management, license plate recognition and electronic tag (UHF) recognition. The system uses license plate recognition for vehicle verification. When faced with identification issues caused by weather or license plate problems, the system’s built-in electronic tag (UHF) recognition can compensate for the shortcomings, fully utilizing the advantages of both methods to improve overall accuracy and performance in identification. These achieve a more comprehensive management of parking lot gates, providing greater flexibility and reliability to parking lot management.

The ParkGuide® Parking Management System Difference
ParkCount® Parking Counting System
Accurately calculate the number of vehicles entering and exiting based on advanced algorithms, and show the result on the gate’s signage. In particular, the system’s built-in automatic error correction mechanism avoids erroneous parking vacancy information after a while. It also allows car owners to use mobile phones to view web pages to obtain real-time parking space information to decide whether to park or wait for an empty parking space.
ParkBack® Parking Management Backup Host
The failover (failure recovery) function is a backup mode mainly used to provide uninterrupted parking services by replacing the primary parking management system with an auxiliary backup system when the primary system is damaged or interrupted due to failure or regular maintenance.
ParkDB® Parking Management Database Server
Managing multiple parking lots is a pain point for enterprises or chain parking lots. The inability to share independent operation data of parking lots makes information integration difficult and workforce waste. The ParkGuid® parking management system provides the option of a ParkDB® database server, which can synchronously store the name-listed and vehicle entry and exit data of each parking lot. Achieve the advantages of centralized management, localized processing, and data backup. Besides that, there are many notable features.
System Cabling Structure
How does the dual recognition system work?
The dual recognition system combines license plate and eTag authentication methods for vehicle entry and exit of the car park. When the vehicle enters the car park entrance, the camera and UHF reader recognize the license plate and read the e-Tag. After passing these two verifications, the gate will open to allow the cars to enter. There are three modes of vehicle authentication.
① The access control will open when the license plate or electronic tag is authenticated.
② The access control opened after the license plates and electronic tags passed the certification.
③ Choose a single authentication method for the license plate or electronic label, and open the gate after passing.
Blocklist and allowlist management
The dual recognition parking management system can preset an allowlist or blocklist as gate entry and exit control. When the system detects a vehicle (including cars, motorcycles, and bicycles) approved on the allowlist, the vehicle allowing enters and exits the parking lot. Otherwise, it will No entry is permitted.
How does the ParkCount® Automatic Counting System of Empty Parking Spaces work?
The system can accurately calculate the number of vehicles entering and leaving based on advanced AI algorithms. The information of empty parking spots is shown on the LED display at the gate entrance, allowing car owners to query it from Webpage and Line App on their mobile phones. It will help the drivers determine whether to wait for an empty parking space to enter the parking lot.
① Install license plate cameras at the exits and entrances of the gates for control entry and exit of vehicles.
② Install an Anti-fall radar detector on the side of the parking barrier gates to protect the pedestrian and vehicle.
③ Install a direction radar detector behind the parking barrier gates in the lane.
④ Accurately count the number of vehicles entering and leaving the parking lot according to the result of the license plate recognition and radar detection.
