Park by phone system prevents unauthorised parking
Portugal-headquartered PhonePark will use Intertraffic to launch its intelligent Parking Meter, a parking control and management system that prevents unauthorised use of parking spaces.
The system uses a vehicle detection device in each parking bay connected to an electronically operated bollard. Each parking slot has its own unique toll free telephone number printed prominently on a parking sign. Registered users make a call, toll free, to the phone number of the parking space and the bollard is retracted to allow access. When the vehicle is removed, the system calculates the cost and can send an SMS to the user with the parking cost, time spent, the balance, etc.
