The Port Esportiu de Roses (Roses Marina) provides service to the nearly 500 vessels that are moored in its permanent and visitor berths. The marina is perfectly integrated into the town’s urban fabric thanks to its modern services and facilities. That is why the marina needed a vehicle parking facility with state-of-the-art technology, aligned with the quality of the services it offers.
The Port de Roses parking facility now features license plate recognition cameras by Quercus Technologies, and parking monitoring software and hardware by Bymar Park. The Quercus Technologies LPR cameras identify vehicles’ plates at the entrance and exit of this Catalan marina’s parking facility, which features 370 parking spaces.
The information that this equipment provides is imminently useful for parking facility operators, who can offer discounts to their frequent customers, dynamic price parking spaces for boat owners with permanent berths, or apply marketing strategies based on seasonality or the availability of spaces in the entire facility, thus guaranteeing the best possible user experience.
Benefits of License Plate Recognition
License plate recognition is a parking management technology that automatically recognizes the characters on a vehicle’s license plate. License plate recognition cameras increase security and monitoring capacity at parking facility access points, while also preventing fraud and ticket swapping among facility users. Security is improved with the images taken of the vehicles as they enter and exit the parking facility, which enables detection in case of car theft.
Additionally, license plate recognition units show the condition of vehicles when they enter and leave the facility, which helps prevent fraudulent claims for accidents that allegedly occurred inside. Thanks to the LPR camera, parking facility security personnel will be able to monitor all entrances and exits, while also gathering crucial data.
In addition, if a vehicle license number is frequently detected at the entrance to a parking facility, and within a given time frame, facility owners can offer that user special or reduced rates, or a loyalty discount. Beyond discounts, there are countless possible marketing strategies that parking facility owners can implement to improve customer loyalty among end users and enhance their parking experience in these facilities.
Smart parking systems feature a number of elements that provide valuable information to facility operators and owners. For any parking solution to be considered complete, LPR cameras must be part of the equation. License number information enables operators to link the vehicle with a specific owner and their actions in the parking facility. This includes entries and exits, but also movements or changing from one area to another inside the facility itself.
The SmartLPR Access recognition cameras from Quercus Technologies are Plug & Play recognition units, which means they are easy to install. Vehicle license plate recognition cameras are connected directly to a computer with no need for configuration using specific software or jumpers. Nor is it necessary to enter parameters into its drivers. This is a feature that significantly facilitates the integration of the cameras with third-party systems.
License plate recognition cameras recognize license plates from all over the world. At Quercus Technologies we always keep our customers in mind. That is why the number of regional license plates recognized by our software is expanding every day. There are numerous countries and states whose license plates are recognized by Quercus equipment, and we perform numerous product tests to ensure the reliability of recognition for plates from each supported territory.
