License Plate Recognition Technology Advances Parking Operations at InterContinental Hotel in Buckhead, Atlanta

Hi-Tech Solutions Ltd. (HTS) and Computerized Valet Parking Systems, Inc. (CVPS) today announced the implementation of a parking system with License Plate Recognition (LPR) solution at the InterContinental Hotel in Buckhead, Atlanta.
The hotels parking garage, with a capacity of 500 cars, is managed by AAA Parking.

The innovative valet parking system and LPR application identifies the vehicle, valet driver and captures the license plate data. The system has been installed at InterContinentals parking garage entrance, automating the license plate number capturing and tagging process, preventing bottlenecks, which is especially effective during conventions. HTSs LPR system is integrated with CVPSs valet system, which includes digital cameras, self-serve request kiosks, point-of-sale terminals, and barrier gate arms.

CVPSs valet system automatically takes a series of images from all sides of the vehicle, and stores the license plate information into its archive. If a customer files a damage claim, the cars photos are retrieved from the system.

CVPSs customer request kiosks located near the hotel lobby allow departing customers to initiate their vehicle retrieval and pay their parking fee with simple swipes of their bar-coded ticket and credit card. Customers may wait inside the hotel in view of the staging area until their vehicle is delivered. In addition, the CVPS system is also connected to the hotel management system (OPERA).

The innovative parking solutions improve the service to hotel guests and convention attendees, prevent complaints and bottlenecks, and allow automatic fee calculation, said Bo Laterveer, Vice President of AAA Parking. In addition, it saves insurance expenses due to the ability to verify damage claims with pictures.

AAA Parkings selection of License Plate Recognition-based solutions further emphasizes the importance of integrating this technology in the ongoing process of parking facility management, said Meta Rotenberg, VP Business Development, HTS. Our LPR solutions implement proprietary image processing software architecture and algorithms for recognition of characters and digits, and specially developed camera and illumination systems optimally designed for capturing the target images.

InterContinental Buckhead sets new standards of luxury and now operates the latest technologies in its parking garage, said Andy Preas, VP Service Tracking Systems, CVPS. Our systems provide AAA Parking and hotel management with real-time information and reports, and management can catch service lapses and reach out to the customers before they complain.
