Description: Parking Guidance and the Journey is the ninth in a series of parking-specific presentations by IPI’s Parking Technology Committee. This archived presentation explores the various technologies available to communicate parking information to consumers during the different parts of a journey (leaving your house, on the road, and in the facility).

This archived presentation walks through three user scenarios and describes how various technologies can be used to inform a consumer about pricing, availability, payment, etc. It explores the use of IPI-DataEx data standard to share information and reviews the major sensor technologies currently used to detect facility occupancy. In addition, the presentation weaves in a short update on Payments – EMV, Chip and Pin, and P2PE to provide a quick refresher on current developments in payments that every owner and operator should be aware.

Learning Objectives

  • Clearly define and describe the different types of parking guidance technologies and their pros and cons.
  • Review how parking guidance technologies are used to communicate to consumers in a variety of use cases.
