Smart Park is a game-changing technology that helps drivers locate vacant parking spaces easily. This system uses sensors in each parking area to detect vehicles and directs cars to available parking spaces through signs strategically placed at convenient locations.
One of the most groundbreaking applications of this technology is at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport where their Smart Park system replaced the methodology of closing the parking lot gates when they hit 90% occupancy. Under the new system, the parking garages are only closed when they are at 99% capacity.
