TransCore Showcases Green Calculator for Parking Facility Management; Provides Carbon Emission Analysis

RFID Technology Aids in the Reduction of Carbon Emissions
To evaluate the current state of a parking facilitys associated environmental impact TransCore will demonstrate the Green Calculator, a tool to estimate carbon dioxide output at parking facilities. The convenient tool estimates the carbon footprint of a facility by assessing traffic volume and average vehicle idle time.

Wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) technology used for parking and access control, and also deployed for wireless payment of tolls throughout the country, allows vehicles to enter and exit parking garages virtually without stopping, keeping access smooth and backups limited. This results in reduced idle times and significantly decreases carbon emission output on a consistent basis. An estimated 25-30 percent decrease in idle times is possible utilizing RFID-based automatic vehicle identification technology.

The Green Calculator helps parking facility owners and managers to quickly assess their facilitys emissions environment and learn about parking and access control solutions that can also improve air quality levels.

To schedule an appointment to assess your facilitys carbon emissions and how they can be reduced, call 214.461.6443.
