Increasingly, both major retailers and private car park owners are reporting that their car parks are being abused by people who regularly park their vehicles for extended periods of time and these vehicles are not visiting the companies who own/use the car parks. In addition, at sites such as airports, hospitals and residential developments, it is even more important that space is managed effectively whilst remaining versatile enough to accommodate the many different needs of the car park user.
This car park abuse results in either limited or no vehicle spaces being available for genuine customers and in turn leads to loss of revenue / profits for the retailers. In addition, for many years car park management was carried out by a parking attendant whose job it was to manually log the details of vehicles on site. This has proven costly and highly ineffective. A solution was required to eliminate the cost of the parking attendant and to free up more spaces for genuine customers whilst ensuring consistency and accuracy.
We have developed an ANPR system using HD cameras with the ability to read vehicles moving in any direction over multiple lanes with one camera. This system has been developed in house by NGP and links directly to our back office software.
How The System Works
Cameras are installed at the entrance and exit of the car park and automatically log the number plate of vehicles on entry and exit. This information is then analysed to identify vehicles that have remained on site for longer than the permitted duration. In this case a report is then compiled with images of the vehicles which is then checked before details are obtained and a Parking Charge Notice is issued through the post.
We provide a nationwide installation & project management team. Each site installation is carried out by skilled and trained installers usually during normal working hours with minimal disruption.
