As a truck stop, Autoparco Brescia Est had to achieve the highest level of infrastructure and functional efficiency, Zeag provided the ideal solution.
The Challenge - Deliver profit whilst maximising drivers comfort and security.There are strict laws related to trucks on Italys highways, for instance every driver is forced to have 45 minutes rest every 4 hours, and they must rest for at least 11 hours every day. So its easy to understand the importance of a project like Autoparco Brescia Est.
As a truck stop, Autoparco Brescia Est had to achieve the highest level of infrastructure and functional efficiency, complemented by a range of facilities to improve accessibility, safety and quality.
Infracom were asked to provide a management system to manage entries and exits, using the most advanced technologies. It needed to provide a service for monitoring and video surveillance round the clock.
Access had to be controlled through full automatic procedures, with the whole complex managed by one integrated system, including license plate recognition systems that cross-check title data (ticket, card, telepass) with vehicle data to ensure exit could only happen if the data conformed with a specific criteria check.
Web-based pre-booking had to be possible with pre-registered users accessing facilities with their own Telepass. A complete invoice solution was necessary with a monthly account, including details of each companys drivers transits and parking usage.
The ImplementationTo achieve the highest innovation and excellence in ICT services, Autoparco Brescia Est has chosen Infracom Italia as strategic partner. In order to attain the best results and performances, Zeag Italy was shortlisted by Infracom for the parking system implementation.
A complex truck stop and car park is the natural place for Zeags fully-integrated OrionXR solution.We installed 4 entry stations, 4 exit stations, 2 automatic pay stations, 2 manual pay stations and several validation points in each service, through the Zeag Management System (ZMS), appropriately interfaced with the license plate recognition system, a Telepass validation system and Autoparcos management servers. That way Autoparco were able to achieve maximum security with maximum efficiency and reliability.
In the control room, operators can easily control the whole truck stop, and through ZMS they can easily see any alarms (e.g. paper low), all transactions (e.g. credit card, Telepass) and they can help customers via intercom). Additionally, through validation software installed across the different services, its possible to manage personalized discounts for every type of request.
The resultsBy using the Zeag technology with OrionXR and ZMS, Zeag installed a reliable parking system that was easy to use and maximised security for drivers and trucks. With this integrated technology, it will be possible in the near future to install systems like this across in many service stations and highway rest areas.
Thanks to Zeag, truck drivers can park easily and enjoy a secure, restful break. Companies can be sure that trucks and goods are safe, and that they are managed from entry to exit column. The future is here!
