Prince Naif International Airport, located in Al-Qassim, Saudi Arabia has moved to Quercus solutions with the installation of SmartLPR Access units at the two entrances and three exits of its parking facility, of over 500 parking spaces.
For most airports, parking is one of the most significant sources of revenue. That’s why parking facilities are given careful consideration in airport improvement and expansion plans. In this area, new technologies have taken a leading role, because, in order to optimize parking occupancy and maximize revenue, parking facility operators must trust in solutions that facilitate mobility.
Smart parking systems are a fundamental part of the parking service that airports offer their users. License plate recognition units have the capacity to bring automation to access, monitor each vehicle that enters or leaves the premises, and eliminate vehicle congestion at key points around the parking facility. Security, for users and vehicles, is another focal point to bear in mind, and ANPR systems are an invaluable aid to provide the monitoring capabilities so necessary in a place like an airport.
Investing in License Plate Recognition Systems as a Business Strategy
The drive to achieve a touchless parking experience has been growing in recent years. This is coupled with a desire to enhance security, and move toward “contactless” equipment which has accelerated the entire process.
License plate recognition technology has been a fundamental component of the parking industry, providing solutions that guarantee a more comprehensive experience, for the parking facility user as well as the operator. What’s more, this type of technology means that the license plate of each vehicle is the identifier for each user that enters or leaves the parking facility, or who is paying for their stay at the pay stations. Quercus’ LPR systems guarantee that each license plate is accurately detected and read.
The cameras in a Quercus LPR system provide that additional layer of security and access control that is so necessary at an airport. For example, these systems have the capacity to track and determine whether a vehicle has entered the premises more than once over a given period of time. With that information, facility operators can create “blacklists” to bar vehicles from coming into the premises, or to the contrary, lists that enable other vehicles to enter without any difficulty whatsoever.
