IMAPARK from SERNIS is an on-street smart parking system that helps drivers find and PRE-RESERVE an available parking spot on public roads more quickly by means of traffic lights - road studs - on the floor, electronic displays and mobile app.
Each parking spot has a light signal and sensor that sends information about the availability of the spot to the Gateway through wireless network. The light signal (road stud) - visible from the road even when a car is parked - will inform drivers about the occupancy status of the spot.
Drivers will receive information in real time - via the mobile application or the electronic displays installed on the public road - about the free parking spots in the area.
Drivers will be able, among other things, to PRE-RESERVE the parking spot, extend the parking time and make the payment of the service (the system include the payment system).
This solution allows Municipalities and parking management companies to manage parking areas much more efficiently, allowing the analysis, optimization and management of street assets in a single platform. The payment system is integrated into the management system.
IMAPARK will enable its managers to simplify parking data collection at a reduced cost. They can collect occupancy and parking revenue reports (including detailed information such as time of day, day of week, etc.) that will be relevant in pricing decisions.
The system will be integrated with the field parking information devices through Gateways that power the application platform.
When installed, this system will reduce traffic density in the center of the city and increase the revenues of municipalities/car park managers by increasing occupancy and reducing non-payments.
