Parking structures all over the world may be getting a makeover soon as lot owners invest billions of dollars to harness the power of new technology.
Right now, the parking industry rakes in one hundred billion dollars every year. Unfortunately the costs of operating a parking structure have also gone up. With the right improvements, however, owners can boost customer satisfaction while also saving money.
Here are the top four gadgets and gizmos coming to a parking space near you.
In most cities, fifty percent of would-be parkers give up on their quest. Twenty seven percent of people worldwide argue over a parking spot. And drivers all over the world spend an average of twenty minutes in search of the elusive spot. Some spend even more time trying to re-find their car when they return.
Parking apps can change all that.
Drivers can use a nifty app to find an open space. They can also compare prices, pay online, and keep track of their car. In addition, app users can pre-book a parking space for a premium, and car owners can receive alerts when their meter is about to time out.
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
By installing E-V-C stations, parking structures can:
Expand their customer base to include electric or hybrid drivers.
Raise profits by charging drivers a premium for E-V-C access.
And take advantage of low infrastructure investment costs.
Without E-V-C stations, lot owners may:
Lose customers as electric cars become more popular.
Miss out on growth opportunities.
And forgo a rising revenue stream.
Fluorescent and L-E-D Lighting
Poor lighting drives away customers, raises the risk of injury, exposes owners to liability claims, jeopardizes patron security, and racks up energy costs.
On the other hand, newer and better fluorescent lights offer even lighting distribution, energy savings, and cold-weather resistance.
L-E-D lights provide longer lamp life, better illumination, and lower energy consumption.
Image Recognition Technology
New license plate identification technology can revolutionize the parking experience by:
Documenting the time and date of entry and exit.
Automatically admitting monthly users.
And catching fraudsters in the act.
