Find Spaces with Convenience

PARKING GUIDANCE VMS Find Spaces with Convenience

As the urban population and the use of vehicles grows, the utilization of space in cities is getting more and more difficult. Therefore, it is important to make sure that available parking areas are utilized in the best possible way. 

SWARCO is able to provide clear signage to the nearest car park and information on the number of available parking spaces on-street and off-street as well as space counting detection which are key to reducing search time for vacant spaces, reducing traffic volumes and emissions. Being quickly directed to the next vacant parking space creates a smoother and more enjoyable journey for the traveller. Signage products available include full colour variable message displays that can display car park names, spaces and logo's to simple static signs with fixed appropriate messages such as 'spaces' or 'full'.

SWARCO has implemented major city-wide parking guidance systems across the world. Including many cities in the UK such as Bedford, Liverpool, Hertfordshire, and Dorset as well as shopping centres in the UK such as Westfield in London and the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

Counting and detection:

The effectiveness of a parking guidance system is dependent on the accuracy of the data input. SWARCO offers the most suitable vehicle counting and detection technology depending on the site conditions, traffic behaviour, and other environmental factors. Accurate count information is vital to accurate guidance, SWARCO can accurately count car park entrances and exits of all car park layouts and we even offer individual bay monitoring and guidance.
