IPsens has deployed its Cloud-based parking management suite at the new Terminal 2 Garage at San Diego International Airport in the US.

The new platform is an open IP system that is capable of managing 1,170 surface-mounted parking guidance sensors which continuously monitor occupancy and guide travellers directly to available rooftop parking spaces.

The sensors have been incorporated into the general parking management system through IPsens’ Cloud-based software interface that manages the rooftop sensors and parking guidance systems of the garage.

“Open IP is the future of parking software. The beauty of the open IP approach is that it encourages sharing among parking organisations and their technology gurus.”

IPsens president Gorm Tuxen said: “Open IP is the future of parking software. The beauty of the open IP approach—beyond improving the operations of a single piece of equipment or technology suite—is that it encourages sharing among parking organisations and their technology gurus.

“Airports and other parking owners can explore, experiment, and share the results of those experiments to create innovative new ways to utilise different types of equipment.”

Contrary to the parking management technology that only runs with proprietary software, San Diego International Airport’s open IP software package enables the airport and its technology staff and consultants to work together to constantly improve the software and the technology it is managing.

As a result, the software is able to adapt to the airport’s evolving parking management needs.

IPsens offers Cloud-based parking, data exchange, and information management solutions.

The company also provides commercial and enterprise software solutions, including airport parking management, commercial parking traffic analysis and municipal parking management, among others.
