Flexible Electronic Access Technologies (LPR, AVI, QR Code, Hotel Key Card)

Integration of access technologies for both contract and transient patron vehicles must be tailored for specific site requirements. The proper implementation of these devices can significantly affect the read accuracy of credentials and hence the smooth operation of a parking facility. Highly accurate License Plate Recognition (LPR) from Quercus Technologies and Survision are tightly integrated with DESIGNA Abacus Blue Edition and Connect Series systems. Automatic Vehicle Detection (AVI) from TransCore and Star allows for near 100% recognition accuracy whether tags are issued by tolling authorities or the garage operator. Integration and implementation of HID prox, QR code and Mifare readers permit support for hotel key card, employee, and special event access as necessary for specific operational requirements.

  • LPR implementations enable gateless entry without loops or triggers
  • AVI integration of full frame credentials ensure highly accurate toll tag reads
  • QR code readers allow customized validation programs & special event access
  • Mifare reader implementation permits hotel key card & employee badge integration
