Quercus Technologies launches its outdoor parking guidance system

Quercus Technologies’ comprehensive global parking solution now features a new outdoor parking guidance systemSC Outdoor, capable of detecting available spaces in outdoor and rooftop parking facilities, and designed to facilitate parking mobility. Quercus’s smart parking guidance system achieves over 99% accuracy in vehicle detection, as confirmed by comparison with actual images. Outdoor smart parking facility control is key. The system markedly increases user mobility, as it directs customers to areas with available spaces via communication between SC Outdoor and information displays.

SC Outdoor enables comprehensive analysis of the situation in a smart parking facility, and detection of stay times for each vehicle through a platform characterized by its easy use, access and integration. With this system, up to 100 parking spaces are analyzed by camera, with adaptation to the needs of each parking facility and type when it comes to installation and maintenance, and very low infrastructure costs.

SC Outdoor, our smart outdoor parking solution, operates with the BirdWatch parking management system, Quercus Technologies’ unique, comprehensive parking system software. BirdWatch centralizes and interconnects the information gathered by all the products that make up the comprehensive parking solution. Real-time information on parking space occupancy can be shown on the LED displays that help guide drivers, with the goal of providing a higher-quality user experience.

User experience, the key goal of the comprehensive advanced outdoor solutions and interconnection with BirdWatch

SC Outdoor’s added value lies in its capacity for interconnection with the rest of devices and solutions that make up the company’s comprehensive parking solution through Quercus Technologies’ parking management technology. Together with this new outdoor solution, other BirdWatch functionalities enable easy generation of statistics and reports that identify present and future usage patterns, in addition to knowledge on user trends. BirdWatch gathers all of this data, essential for Business Intelligence.

Guiding users to free spaces in a parking facility in a simple and direct manner is a fundamental need all guided parking systems must meet. The advanced outdoor solutions are the ideal accompaniment to Quercus Technologies’ camera-based smart parking guidance system, SC Indoor. It is a perfect combination of systems designed to reduce congestion, improve end user satisfaction and increase vehicle rotation in the parking facility.

Efficient management of the parking facility, and getting the most profitability and productivity from parking spaces or areas, are key factors when considering a guidance system. The BirdWatch software platform lets operators gather complete data that lead to efficient overall control of parking facilities while also enhancing security.

How can you harvest Big Data on your parking facility? The SC Indoor sensors for smart parking and SC Outdoor parking control solutions, matrix information displays, the light per space system, kiosks to locate vehicles by license plate number and LPR cameras at access and exit points are all key components for optimal parking management. The information gathered by these devices, centralized in a single software platform, gives you total control over your facility, and expedites strategic decision-making based on parking customs and trends.

Guaranteed security in the facility, and access automation, with the comprehensive parking control solutions

Increased security in the parking facility is one of the highest priorities of parking facility operators, a basic element for an efficient management of the premises. Video surveillance of all movements in each of the spaces and in outdoor areas through panoramic cameras offers security at the highest level.

By monitoring the facility this way, operators prevent fraud, damages to vehicles, attempted or actual theft, muggings and accidents that can cause vehicle damage. In the comprehensive parking solution parking managers will find a higher degree of security, and pass it on to their end users, who enjoy a surprise-free parking experience.

Quercus Technologies’ comprehensive parking solution features access control in addition to all of the information gathered by the different smart parking devices. This way, operators know the condition of vehicles when they access and leave the premises, and prevent fraudulent claims for alleged incidents inside the parking facility.

Secure, automatic access, with no physical contact between the user and surfaces is now a growing demand, especially in the current circumstances. Thanks to the parking management software of the LPR cameras, parking facility operators can analyze the data gathered, and strategically generate decisions to continue optimizing and improving their parking systems.

Automated access thanks to the automatic license plate reader lets drivers reserve their space on-line prior to arrival at the parking facility. With the added value of specific parking space reservation thanks to SC Indoor, a parking space can be linked to a license plate number, and enable management to detect whether it is occupied by the right customer.

Forget ‘smart detection’, we do so much more! Quercus Technologies introduces new logo, slogan, corporate philosophy and website


For Quercus Technologies it is an end of year full of positive changes that form the basis of the growth that is expected both of the company and of the products, projects and services it provides. The global turbulent times have only reinforced the need to adapt and take advantage of the circumstances.

Technology and artificial intelligence is becoming more and more important to reduce contact with surfaces and automate parking and user experiences as much as possible. As in all sectors, user experience is fundamental.

The new Quercus Technologies logo retains its classic tree composed of pixels and the letters that symbolize the essence of the company: Quercus, the oak tree. The strength and stability of its roots characterize this family of trees and also Quercus Technologies.

Previously, the company’s logo had the slogan Smart detection integrated into it, a message that represented of the company’s activity at the time. However, the strategic line of Quercus Technologies in recent years has been moving towards parking guidance projects and parking services, and not only intelligent detection and license plate recognition products.

While new branches and leaves appear on the oak, it is essential that the roots—the time-honored products developed by the company—remain strong and form the foundation on which to grow.

New slogan – Boost the parking experience!

In line with the above mentioned, Quercus Technologies was not exclusively engaged in the production and distribution of license plate recognition equipment, but went much further. “Boost the parking experience” perfectly sums up what customers can expect with the installation of the company’s system, products and services.

Enhancing car parks means making them intelligent, optimal, improving the user experience from the moment they enter to the moment they leave the premises. This can only be achieved with a global vision of the car park and the experience of those who have successfully carried out projects of this caliber.

New Corporate Philosophy – Mission, Vision and Values Renewed

Every great change in a company starts with a change of vision, and with a constant desire to improve and offer better services. That is why Quercus Technologies also has a new corporate philosophy that draws on the professionalism that already characterized the company when it was founded, with the added value of experience and new horizons.

  • Mission: Innovative parking solutions to improve user experience and our customer’s business.
  • Vision: A world leader company in providing the most innovative and reliable engineering solutions to every customer.
  • Values: Professionalism, Innovation, Cooperation, Quality, Honesty.

New website and domain

In early 2019, the creation of the company’s two commercial and business divisions, Detection and Mobility, led to the need to reinvent a website that needed a change in both content and style. With the intention of strengthening the brand, the domain of the new website has also changed, it is now www.quercus-technologies.com including the two words that have accompanied Quercus Technologies and all that this company represents for more than 20 years.

The new website has much more information about the company: the divisions, its markets and applications, its products, its projects and references, its success stories and its Human Resource section. Quercus Technologies, a large company with international projection, must have a quality website, which perfectly reflects the products and services offered.

Quercus Technologies presents the latest innovations in the global parking solution: light per space and new matrix displays

Once again, Quercus Technologies demonstrated that its customers’ needs are compatible with the highest reliability in parking guidance. With no intention of dispensing with the security and control provided by the reading of vehicle plates at each space, the company proposes a system that indicates the availability of parking spaces with occupancy lights on each one. This new and innovative system is called Light per Space and makes it possible to guide the driver to available spaces very efficiently.

This is made possible by installing RGB pilots in each of the parking spaces in a car park. These LED lights are connected to the Spot Control central unit, which, with its light switched off, will read the number plates and detect the presence of the vehicles, sending the information to the parking system and changing the colors of each light as the space is occupied or vacated.

This system is a step forward for Quercus Technologies and for pioneering parking guidance with license plate recognition in each parking space and, now, availability indication in each space. Customers are thus provided with individual information without having to sacrifice the video surveillance and big data generated by Quercus Technologies’ Spot Control sensors.

With the intention of improving mobility and guidance inside the parking facilities, and of doing so with the best quality possible, Quercus Technologies also makes available to its customers the most innovative matrix displays on the market. Totally customizable and with infinite possibilities, the matrix panel types allow the most varied combinations, infinite colors, different levels and personalized dynamic or static messages.

The BirdWatch parking suite centralizes and interprets the information received about the availability of parking spaces, given by the Spot Control sensors, and it is shown on the panels in real time for a greater mobility within the car park. It is a global, centralized solution that allows for a total control of the installations in an intuitive and automatic way.
