Comfortable parking access at Canada’s premier shopping centre

- Toronto, Canada

Located in the heart of the city, the Toronto Eaton Centre is Canada’s premier shopping destination. The shopping mall houses a selection of more than 230 retailers, restaurants and services. The building architecture is characterized by a spectacular glass galleria above it, which makes the area a nice place to visit. The centre consists of multiple buildings featuring various parking facilities. 

The challenge

The management of the Toronto Eaton Centre wanted to automate the vehicle access into the facility to make parking more comfortable and user-friendly for owners, employees and residents. Another requirement was to improve the convenience factor of tenants without sacrificing security.

The solution

Due to the read range advantage of the TRANSIT Entry, this reader features a certified minimum read range of 12 feet (4 meters), Nedap AVI was chosen for this project. This robust reader has been specifically designed to perform in situations where a reliable long read range is essential. The automatic vehicle identification system consists of TRANSIT Entry readers and Window Button transponders for hands-free parking access.
