P-Eliel is a barrier-free parking garage located right in the middle of Helsinki city center. For pedestrians, there are 12 different routes to and from the garage, and drivers can access the garage via two opposite entrances. The garage offers short-term parking as well as contract parking. You can get your car washed or electric vehicle charged in P-Eliel in addition to parking.
Portier's space-specific parking guidance solution was chosen to serve P-Eliel’s customers in 2008 and the ultrasonic parking sensors and parking guidance displays have been functioning well over the years. During the enlargement project of the garage, more Portier parking sensors and parking guidance displays were installed.
In 2018, the software at P-Eliel was updated to the Portier HOST parking guidance platform, while the parking guidance displays were also upgraded to the latest technology. What was important for the customer was that our solution did not require all the products to be replaced since it is possible to update and upgrade older generation Portier products, making our solution extremely flexible and profitable.
In 2022, EuroPark made the decision to offer more premium-level services to its driving customers at P-Eliel. Portier ultrasonic sensors were replaced by Portier Vision space-specific cameras. Portier Vision camera units monitor between one to six spaces on one or both sides of the driving lane and when a space becomes occupied, our proprietary algorithm detects the vehicle and subsequently reads the license plate.
Portier Vision cameras calculate the occupancy level of the garage and provide security information by reacting to any movements around a vehicle and saving images of such an event. The cameras' audio function can be used for announcements or advertising campaigns, which can create extra revenue for the operator.
All different technologies by Portier are connected to Portier HOST making it easy to operate the parking facility with one login and receiving several reports of different parking activities.
Portier offers complete solutions for parking guidance and management. The Core of the Portier parking solutions is dynamic parking guidance systems that offer the convenience of parking for customers as well as effective parking management for the operators. Some examples of the solutions include space-specific guidance systems with ultrasonic or camera-based detection, dynamic displays connected to third-party systems, induction loop counting for open areas, roadside guidance displays, and access control solutions for contract parking.
