1. INTRODUCTION

SPM is parking management solution of Silver Sea JSC, developed to improve the efficiency and reliability of current parking lots. By using a combination of magnetic card and surveillance camera, the system allows to record tickets and to control vehicles quickly and accurately with many information: ticket numbers, license plates, photos car, photo of driver, etc. In addition, an integrated software enables managers to easily operate the parking lot, vehicle reports, revenue reports, etc. Finally, managers are able to catch the operation of the parking lot and avoid loss.
Awards achieved: Sao Khue 2011, Vifotec 2011, etc.

2. OPERATION PRINCIPLES

The system includes:

  • Camera to take photos of license plate number
  • Camera to take photos of vehicles
  • Card reader
  • Barrier + Loop Detector (optional)
  • DVR card (for analog camera)
  • Computer for integrating the SPM Parking Management software
  • Printer (optional)
  • UPS equipment for electric system (power storage) – used in case of power failure

2.1 Entrance

The parking staff put one swipe card in the card reader and give it to the customer wishing to be parked. Then, the software will take photos of license number plates and vehicle owners’ photos. The license number plate will be identified in form of text. It will include information about the card, real time of entry ant picture of the vehicle owner. This process will create an electronic ticket and save it to the database of the computer.

2.2 Exit

The parking staff get back the card and swipe it in the card reader. The software will take photos of the vehicle to identify the license plates. Then, the photos will be automatically compared with the license plate used when entering. It aims to check validity. If it is wrong, a warning alarm will be triggered and alert the parking staff. If it is correct, the software will announce the amount the customer must pay. This amount is calculated thanks to the hour or the value on the card.

The system can be used in combination with the barrier to letting in/out vehicles.
