Located in the South Fifth Ring Road in Beijing, China, the LIVAT Centre Beijing is the largest and most prosperous urban complex in Southern Beijing. It has a daily average passenger flow of nearly 100,000 and a peak traffic volume of 35,000 during weekends. LIVAT Centre Beijing has a total of 7,118 parking spaces in the three-layer underground parking lot.
The huge passenger flow has made the LIVAT Centre Beijing a leisure landmark in the city, and it has also brought unprecedented parking pressure. Although it is the 'largest underground parking lot', an annual customer survey showed that size alone can not solve a series of problems such as finding a car and an unoccupied parking space. The parking lot is not being used effectively, especially during the weekend. Due to free parking and an imperfect guidance system, many 'overnight cars' and 'zombie cars' bring inconvenience to regular parking.
In order to resolve these problems, the LIVAT Centre Beijing carried out a comprehensive upgrade for the parking lot. At present, LIVAT Centre Beijing’s 16-in and 16-out lane and 7,118 parking spaces have all adopted JIESHUN’s Smart Parking solution.
Efficient Access: Creating an Unattended Closed Loop
All 32 lanes of LIVAT Centre Beijing are equipped with JIESHUN’s C-series unattended parking management dispenser. This yields more than 99.8% of LPR rate, with special events handling such as unlicensed car entry, one-button call management center, and more features, that reduce the cost of hiring a sentry guard and minimize the passing time. In terms of payment methods, JIESHUN fully supports on-line payment methods including WeChat and Alipay in order to achieve 'License Plate Scan to Go', 'QR Code Payment', 'Face-to-Face Payment', and puts 24 units of automated payment machines in the shopping center. If parkers are unable to pay using their mobile phone, they can also pay with cash.
Parking Guidance: No Longer Trapped in a Parking 'Maze'
With more than 7,000 parking spaces in the three-layer parking lot of the shopping center, finding an unoccupied parking space and car finding were once big problems. JIESHUN configured 3,599 HD video detection terminals for the shopping center. These terminals can quickly detect the occupied space situation via video stream. Red and green lights are displayed in real time, and the real-time parking space information highlights available stalls to guide parkers to unoccupied parking spaces quickly. With so many people in the shopping center, the terminals can also be utilized as real-time monitoring cameras in the event of any dispute, such as vehicle damage or space occupancy. The vehicle-search terminal allows parkers to locate their car easily.
Customized Development: Efficient Management Is Key
In addition to optimizing the experience of the car owner, how can the management of the parking lot beome more efficient and convenient? In response to the special needs of LIVAT Centre Beijing, JIESHUN’s customized developments (from product functions, platform docking and financial analysis) fully meet the smart management needs of LIVAT Centre Beijing. In terms of recognition, JIESHUN added a taxi recognition algorithm to LIVAT Centre Beijing to let taxis in and out easily at any time. In the parking guidance system, according to the special requirements of 'family parking space', customized blue lights can be used to highlight these spaces. At the same time, JIESHUN Smart Parking Management System is connected with the membership system of LIVAT Centre Beijing to realize the membership discount, coupon issuing, and exclusive parking discounts and rights.
