Westfield is going for gold at Stratford City

Westfield Stratford City is not just a shopping centre, it is the gateway to the Olympic Games, which takes place mainly in east London this summer. It is anticipated that 70% of spectators will be routed through the mall, passing along the tree-lined Chestnut Plaza before entering the Games Park.
Developed in the USA, Park Assist uses sensors to monitor the occupancy of each parking space and ceiling mounted sensors to indicate which ones are not occupied. In the UK Park Assist is also used by clients such as Lend Lease and Tesco. The real-time sensor networks detect the presence of vehicles in each parking space. It directs customers to the vacant spaces using electronic messaging signs and red/green LED indicators above each space. A refinement of the Park Assist system for Westfield Stratford City is the use of blue lights to denote Blue Badge bays and pink lights for parent & child bays. Reducing the time cars circulate looking for parking also improves air quality in the car park. Ryan says that where Park Assist systems have been installed there is also a reduction in vehicle carbon emissions of 56%, as well as 3% increase in parking space utilisation, and a 1-3% decrease in costs.
