Siemens Traffic in the UK has announced it is introducing SiPark, a new car park guidance system capable of monitoring individual spaces, for multi-storey car parks in the UK.
Based on a modular structure, SiPark is both flexible and freely extendable, meeting the requirements of all car park management operations, from the smallest applications to comprehensive large-scale systems.
Occupancy of individual parking spaces is monitored by ultrasonic sensors and the information is transmitted to the central control system. SiPark monitors occupancy within the entire car park, and the graphical user interface enables operators to view the status of each individual parking space at a glance. LED arrow displays immediately show drivers the most efficient route to available parking spaces, and the system provides the opportunity for operators to reserve specific parking spaces, manually control zone displays and availability, or to monitor the duration of occupancy for each parking space.
