What Is the Best Parking-Management System on the Market?

Posted By RFID Journal, 12.17.2014

In addition, are RFID readers used in parking-management systems dependent on specific software, or can the software support any kind of reader?

I cannot point to the best RFID parking-management system because I have not seen any objective testing of the systems available on the market.

It would be difficult to answer your second question categorically. In general, most software systems accept data from an RFID solution in a specific format, but it is usually fairly easy to take the raw data captured by a reader and format in a way that the software can use. Some parking-management systems utilize passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID readers based on the Electronic Product Code (EPC) air-interface standard. These devices can provide data in XML format, which is easy to convert to other formats. So I would say it should be possible to buy software and hardware separately. However, there might be systems on the market which feature proprietary readers that will only work with their software.
