PARKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM, Norway, Slependen

IKEA, 2009

Challenge

One of the major challenges when purchasing furniture is the transport of the goods home. The volume, weight and handling of such items require available parking spaces next to the exit, since the traditional mode of transport is by private cars.

Details

The Single Space Recognition system at IKEA handles more than 900 parking spaces, including ordinary parking spaces, family parking spaces, handicapped parking spaces, and electrical car parking. The system also includes the counting of outdoor parking spaces, parking guidance signs and a high performance administrative back office system.

Benefits

SWARCO’s installation has optimised IKEA’s parking administration and significantly increased the car park occupancy. The environmental benefits were also important for IKEA when deciding for a professional parking guidance system, since convenient parking and less search traffic reduce the emission impact and save fuel.
