DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--INDECT USA, the parking industry’s leading provider of sensor-based parking guidance systems, today announced that the company has completed a groundbreaking parking guidance installation at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal A. The $176 million program featured the installation of parking sensors in each of the terminal’s 6,050 covered spaces.
The mounted sensors are located above each parking space, offering a clear view to drivers of where open spaces can be found, and what type of parking is permitted in an individual space. Different colors indicate each space’s status: green for available, red for occupied, blue for HP, and white for one hour parking. The lights are clearly visible from several hundred yards away, and signage at the end of each driving aisle also indicates how many spaces, and what types of spaces, are available adjacent to travellers’ departure gates.
The sensors also collect data about lengths of stay, occupancy, and usage. That data can be used to establish parking management strategies and regulations to better manage parking assets and assure that travelers can easily get to and from the airport’s terminals.
“This is an extraordinarily important parking guidance project, and it sets the standard for other airports,” said Dale Fowler, director of INDECT USA. “This parking guidance program is already providing significant customer service benefits to DFW travelers while, at the same time, helping the airport to operate its parking resources more efficiently and profitably. As revolutionary as this technology is, it will be the standard in just a few years.”
In addition to 7,793 sensors located throughout the 2.9 million square foot garage, the project also included the installation of 140 of INDECT’s Upsolut multi-space camera sensors to provide surveillance and control in the facility’s one-hour parking area. DFW becomes the first airport in the United States with camera-based sensors in its parking areas.
Completion of the Terminal A parking guidance program marks the culmination of the largest airport parking guidance program in the U.S. Because of the project’s size, it was completed in three phases, with phase one commencing in 2012. In addition to the sensors installed in DFW’s Terminal A, INDECT earlier installed 4,000 sensors in Terminal D, bringing the total number of sensors in DFW garages to 10,050. INDECT will begin installing an additional 3,170 sensors in Terminal E in July 2015.
