Leading in Smart Parking & Access Control
With the rapid development of the Internet, big data, and AI technology, as well as various applications in parking lots, such as license plate recognition, mobile payment, parking guidance, visual intercom and other intelligent applications are becoming more and more popular, the unattended parking lot operation mode has gradually become an effective means and a new trend to reduce management costs and increase operating income.
Market demand for unattended parking lots
In the past, parking lot management occasionally faced some problems, such as temporary parking of express vehicles and sanitation vehicles, abnormal payments by car owners, and system failures. The handling of these problems is mostly done with manual assistance.
In recent years, with the continuous increase of labor costs, the increasing scale of parking lots, and the increasing complexity of service vehicles, the efficiency and reliability of manual management of parking lots have been very difficult to meet the management needs of property managers. More and more parking lot managers began to think about how to improve management efficiency and reduce operating costs with new technologies.
At the same time, in the process of technology update, car owners have more requirements for the intelligentization, interoperability, and reliability of parking system such as license plate recognition, electronic payment, electronic invoice, etc.
Significant cost reduction
In recent years, most companies in the parking industry have successively launched smart parking products and solutions based on their own technology and development level, which has promoted the development of the industry to a certain extent.
In recent years, Jieshun has specially established the Intelligent Application Research Institute, sorted out more than 900 parking application scenarios and more than 50 unattended application industry solutions, and launched "cloud hosting" in 2019.
According to calculations, unattended parking lots have significantly reduced costs compared to traditional parking lots. The traditional parking lot with one entrance and one exit generally requires 21 employees to be arranged at the entrance and exit, parking fee booth, management center, video surveillance room, financial room, and security room. Jieshun unattended parking lot requires only 6 staff, which greatly reduces labor costs. In addition, revenue from unattended parking lots generally increased by about 20%.
A long way to go
From the perspective of the technical director of Jieshun Technology, the current development of unattended parking lots is still in its infancy in terms of industry perception, application scenarios, and competition focus.
The service personnel at the entrance and exit can be replaced by the product, but the back-end management center still needs personnel support. Improving the management awareness of the entire industry and clarifying the job responsibilities of personnel is the current top priority for unattended business development.
