Member News: Washington Regional Medical Center installs INDECT’s intelligent parking guidance system to manage multiple user groups.
ARKANSAS NC, (October 28, 2019) INDECT USA has successfully completed their first parking guidance installation at Washington Regional Medical Center (WRMC) in Arkansas, North Carolina.
A total of 254 ultrasonic sensors with internal LEDs and an additional 134 NEDAP inground sensors were installed through INDECT’s trusted regional partner, IPSens.
“INDECT has worked with IPSens on a number of parking guidance projects where we have successfully integrated the NEDAP sensor into the INDECT system but this was the first time that it was done in reverse,” said Stephen Evans, General Manager at INDECT USA. “This time, we supplied the sensors and IPSens took care of the rest. They were completely responsible for the integration, installation and commissioning of the system and they’ve done a great job.”
IPSens are widely recognized as experts in data integration and open IP solutions. They provide clients with intelligent parking solutions by integrating multiple products on a single, unified platform using open API, internal revenue, parking enforcement and mobile payments.
The parking facility at WRMC is small but consistently busy with specific sections designated for physicians, patents/visitors, providers and employees. The hospital had been searching for a way to fairly and equitably allocate a limited resource among multiple user groups and be able to monitor the facility to ensure compliance. The answer was parking guidance.
“The sensors are located directly above each parking spot with color coded LEDs to match their allocated user group. This makes it easy for drivers to quickly identify the correct parking area and locate the nearest available space.” said Evans.
“It also makes it easy tell at a glance whether employees are parking in the patient/visitor area or vice versa.” he said.
“Although it is easy to see why parking guidance is needed in large parking garages, like those found in airports and shopping centers, we find that some of the most innovative uses of parking guidance technology come from organizations with limited space.” Evans concluded.
