New parking features in UK shopping centres

At three shopping centres in the United Kingdom ‘ParkID systems’ of Imtech Traffic & Infra (by WPS) have been installed. The system was selected because of its innovative features and easy maintenance.

ParkID makes lives easier. For example using anpr (automatic number plate recognition) to allow regular users to enter without using a ticket and pay using value cards. Other features are targeted marketing at entries, online payment, integration with loyalty schemes as well as detailed dwell time and demographic reporting.
