Flesh-and-blood parking inspectors could soon join the ranks of workers displaced by computerised systems, with new sensor technology to be deployed in Adelaide next year.
The city of Charles Sturt will be among the first in the country to trial the new automated sensors, designed to catch overstayers and maximise space availability.
Developed at The University of Adelaide, the new 'Smart ePark' will replace most parking inspectors employed by the Charles Sturt council in a bid to improve efficiency and turnover.
If you are a fleet manager operating in Adelaide, you might want to take some time to warn your drivers that the state may soon be cracking down on parking infringements with a new electronic monitoring system.
SMART ePark is being developed by the University of Adelaide as a way to maximise parking space and streamline the process of monitoring parking lots throughout the region.
Instead of the current manual system of parking wardens patrolling for over stayers, SMART ePark utilises a series of wireless sensors, cameras and purpose-built software in order to monitor parking spaces and ensure people are not leaving their vehicles unoccupied for longer than their allotted time.
A new parking management system being developed at the University of Adelaide should help smooth the parking process for both local councils and drivers.
The automated system, 'SMART ePark', aims to replace most parking inspectors and help councils maximise on-street parking spaces.
SMART ePark is being developed by electronic engineering PhD graduate Dr Jega Balakrishnan and colleague Indrajit Majumder, based at the University's business incubator, ThIncLab.
Their company, eSMART 21, and parking system were born in the University's eChallenge business plan competition. They have just signed a trial contract with Charles Sturt Council.
eSMART 21 has revealed its SMART ePark system , an automated parking enforcement system which assists local councils in rectifying their vehicle overstay problem through providing electronic monitoring.
