As an affected international aviation hub with annual passenger footfall of up to 50 million passengers, the epidemic prevention work of Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport cannot be ignored. Shenzhen Airport has formulated a special emergency response plan, installing body temperature detection equipment in the terminals, and increasing the sterilization frequency in crowded areas, all in an effort effort to ensure epidemic prevention and control. The unattended P1 parking lot, completed last year, provides an additional resource to the airport.
Zero Contact Between You and Me: An Unattended Parking Lot to Prevent the Epidemic
On December 27, 2019, the parking management system and supporting hardware was upgraded at Shenzhen Airport. The newly launched system supports multiple functions, such as HD LPR, face-to-face payment, cash changing, video intercom, and license plate recognition error correction. These mean that the first unattended parking lot at Shenzhen Airport is officially serving passengers in the P1 parking lot.
Since the outbreak, from January until now, the airport P1 parking lot has experienced an average daily traffic volume of nearly 2,800 vehicles. With the help of JIESHUN cloud hosting, the parking lot management team has already removed booths & toll staff and released more available staff to quarantine positions. Thus, the team has reduced costs, improved efficiency, and importantly lowered the risk of personnel direct contact to prevent virus transmission.
Promoting Smart Airport Construction: Building the "Most Experienced Digital Airport"
Before the upgrade of JIESHUN cloud hosting, the online payment ratio of Shenzhen Airport 's P1 parking lot reached more than 95%. However, the sheer volume of passenger traffic has resulted in management arranging at least 5 shifts to meet the 5% of offline payment needs alone.
Parking lot management staff members can access the centralized parking management system and control all software and hardware for the parking lot through intelligent remote office and mobile terminal management. Staff members in different positions can view relevant data reports on the PC and mobile terminals to carry out mobile offices. The vehicle entry and exit management is also becoming more intelligent, efficient, convenient and safe.
Airport passengers are able to pay parking fees through automated payment machines, Alipay/WeChat and QR code in the P1 parking lot and can also receive electronic invoices through the Shenzhen Airport official account by themselves. Upgraded equipment has improved the license plate recognition rate and effectively accelerated the traffic efficiency.
If passengers encounter difficulties when entering or leaving the field, they can push the intercom buttons of the parking management controllers/dispensers to communicate with cloud hosting personnel who are able to operate the gates remotely. Cloud hosting personnel can also take the initiative to intervene through the environmental monitoring of entrances and exits to help manage drivers’ expectations. With this kind of one-click access to cloud hosting, personnel can not only demonstrate the operating efficiency and service quality of the "smart airport", but also protect drivers from public health threats.
Anti-Epidemic Management of Shenzhen Airport Parking Lot Is a Good Example of How JIESHUN Cloud Hosting Penetrates the Front Line
The outbreak covered the entire Chinese Spring Festival holiday. Some car park managers still relied on security staff for parking management and were unable to have more anti-epidemic manpower or other resources in the short term. This led to great difficulties in the entry and exit management of vehicles in specific areas, and the anti-epidemic work was carried out quite passively.
With the help of JIESHUN smart parking and cloud hosting service, Shenzhen Airport's P1 parking lot is able to, not only prevent the spread caused by the contact of the parking lot personnel, but also be combined with big data trajectory tracking to help the comprehensive epidemic prevention planning of the city.
With the necessity for nationwide epidemic prevention and control, real-time monitoring and analysis of big data from connected parking lots may provide strong support for epidemic prevention and control.
