The use of parking spaces and garages is on the rise. We can always spot a closed parking lot or a parking garage nearby all institutions, companies and many other businesses. The market is adopting the parking system very rapidly so as to ensure that no one faces the trouble in finding a parking space.
However, the revolution in the parking space from being the traditional one to automate has taken the world by storm. The advancements like automatic barriers have added an efficient and flexible way to manage the entry and exit of the parking space and keeping track of all the customers has made the parking space more reliable and efficient and effortless.
The majority of customers face the issue in entering and exiting to a parking facility and to find an appropriate parking spot for their vehicle to park. The Automatic Park barriers allow the entry and exit of a vehicle without the stop and wait in queues, which provides a speedy traffic flow and gives no room for any mishaps to occur. They can handle continuous operation, and can be centrally controlled with being easy to use.
They take care of everything from ticketing, entry of the vehicle until the exit of the vehicle. Also, these automatic barriers can be operated through various devices such as Remote control, Push Button to RFID tags and Readers. These can also be integrated with Loop Detectors, Opt-Electronic Sensors, License plate recognition camera and other third party access control devices.
What is the need of using an Automatic Barrier System?
In our day to day life, we face many parking problems such as traffic congestion, hassle to find a parking space, to wait in long queues to enter the parking space. The traditional park barriers are inefficient to keep up with the fast pace world and hence there is a need to change that.
The automatic barrier system not only makes this process hassle free, but also reduces the time & complexity of the drivers also by enhancing the operational services. They not only help in managing the traffic flow, handle the payment process and maximising the availability of parking space but also provide stress-free parking experience that leaves impressing the customers.
Also, it reduces labour costs by providing quality service and smarter operating. It also helps in entering and clearing of the vehicles and optimising the parking space. They reduce the manual cost significantly by providing efficient services. The sensor and the light offer a new way to help in the entry and exit system.
There are innumerable benefits of Automatic Barriers over Manual barriers; however the key factors to look for are listed below:
Every automatic barrier is flexible, and can be easily operated. It gives you a 24 hrs operation day in and day out and a reliable trouble free operation. The operation of this barrier can be centrally controlled, monitored. Hence, these open many doors to our parking problems.
The Automatic Barriers are fast and reliable and hence, the people don’t have to wait in queue to enter or leave the queue. Also, if we add the license plate recognition camera, it can accelerate the processing speed of the vehicles. So the automatic barrier will process at the speed of 900 vehicles per hour rather than however the traditional barrier can only go up to a processing speed of a maximum 300 in an hour.
The customers will not have to wait in a line and it’ll also help in having a speedy traffic flow.
The Automatic Barriers are more reliable than the manual ones, the operation of the automatic sees heavy motor and machinery, which in turn makes it more secure and safe to use.
Also, the license plate recognition camera has a feature called “escort”. This escort function scans the license plate, and also scans the access card with the plate.
Here, if the combination of the access card and the license plate is matched and if they match, then the car is only allowed to leave the facility to ensure unauthorised person leaves with your car. The car will safe and sound, and even if the system detects an anomaly, it’ll inform, the centralised system and alert them.
The automatic barriers significantly reduce the stoppages of the vehicles. And this has helped in reducing the air pollution. There will be no long queues to present an access card or ticket. Thus, it contributes a lot in saving the environment. The Research has shown that this will result in a reduction of about tenfold CO2 emissions. So, they make the environment a habitat place to live in.
The Automatic Barriers are more accessible and can provide access to the entry and exit parking barriers at the same time. Hence, they are perfect to use and control. Also, the automatic car park barriers have the license plate recognition. This helps as it has a standard “auto-exit” feature, which gives the short-term parkers, enter and leave without waiting in long queues.
For example, if a Parker arrives by the entry point of the park and gets a bar-code ticket. Thus now, the license plate recognition camera captures the license plate and links the bar-code to the license plate or prints the license number on the bar-code ticket. So only once the payment is processed, the vehicle can leave the parking facility. So this is convenient for the short-term Parker as he longer has to show ticket and wait in a queue.
