Provide accurate guidance to drivers trying to find available parking under time pressure. Comprehensive guidance systems not only enhance the flow of traffic and reduce emissions, but they also lead to increased payment compliance.
Bring the permitting process into the 21st century with digital permits issued to all university stakeholders. Access privileges for each permit can be updated at any time, simplifying the management process, and allowing for more flexible and dynamic use of parking areas. Cleverciti offers solutions that simplify the permit process with fully digital permits.
Automate parking payment for frequent visitors because overly complex payment processes are one reason for non-compliance when it comes to paying for parking. Payment is fully automated with Cleverciti: no action required other than simply parking.
Allow university constituents to reserve parking spaces ahead of time or as they approach the facility, dynamically assigning the best possible space for their needs and guiding them to it.
Incorporate advertising into parking guidance displays, combining valuable parking information with advertising about university events or local businesses—increasing event attendance, growing revenues for retailers in the area, and helping to fund the parking guidance deployment.
Smart technologies blend seamlessly into the streetscape when mounted on existing infrastructure such as lampposts. Easily upgrade older lampposts to be the smart hub of the future by equipping them with power and connectivity.
University smart parking FAQs
Why is smart parking needed for universities?
Smart parking simplifies the parking process, meaning that drivers find available spaces in less time without having to circle around a parking lot or garage unnecessarily. In case all parking spaces are occupied, real-time data fed into a mobile application can inform drivers of the situation ahead of time, so they can revert to alternative parking or means of transport. In addition, smart parking systems help reduce congestion and harmful emissions, allowing universities to minimize their carbon footprint.
How does smart parking benefit university students?
With smart parking, drivers avoid random circling and driving into fully occupied areas, helping them find a parking space quickly. Local digital signage at critical points like intersections and entrances to each parking aisle makes finding a parking spot easy and efficient.
What else can smart parking signage be used for on a university campus?
Parking guidance can be combined with weather, special event, emergency messaging, or health reminders such as mask requirements. Alternatively, smart parking signage can also be used for advertising messages.
With the importance of student privacy, how is Cleverciti smart parking data managed?
Smart parking data is processed “at the edge”, meaning the only data that leaves a sensor are the GPS coordinates of a parked vehicle or vacant parking space.
