LogicaCMG and SKIDATA: Mobile phone as parking ticket

LogicaCMG and SKIDATA presented their joint solution for parking space pre-booking and mobile ticketing at Intertraffic 2004 in Amsterdam. With 'mobile ticketing', parkers get a guaranteed parking space.

The ticket is then delivered to the user's mobile phone in the form of a 2-D barcode ('matrix code') image. To access the car park, all one has to do is hold the mobile phone up to the scanner at the entrance gate.

No more hunting for a parking space – it's every car owner's dream. With "Mobile Ticketing", that dream has now come true. Parking tickets may be reserved any time, from anywhere. Waiting lines in front of car park entrances are reduced considerably. What is more, the electronic ticket on the mobile phone can be used for all sorts of other purposes, such as an admission ticket to sports events.

The ticketing solution, which has been provided by LogicaCMG, is already in use in the Netherlands at sports arenas and leisure parks.
