GAO RFID Unveils Enhanced Hands-Free Advanced Parking Solution

GAO RFID, a provider of RFID hardware, software and systems designed to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and heighten personnel safety, has released an enhanced hands-free parking-control solution aimed at enabling a faster, safer, more convenient parking experience.

The GAO RFID Parking Control System is a control and monitoring system designed for use at residential condominiums, gated communities, business parking garages, university parking areas, and hospitality or retail centers. According to the company, the solution now can sense an authorized incoming vehicle and automatically open the gate, allowing the vehicle to pass through without completely stopping. The new parking solution includes small, durable tags that can be attached to the windshield or license plate, or be hung from the rearview mirror, GAO RFID reports.

The company's accompanying GAO Parking Control software provides insight into parking lot usage by tracking access history specifics, including entry and exit times, as well as driver details. The solution includes GAO RFID readers installed at entry and exit points within a parking facility. When vehicles approach, GAO RFID explains, the readers capture IDs transmitted by those vehicles' RFID tags. The tags transmit their IDs to the RFID readers, which forward that information to the solution's software—which, in turn, tells the system to grant access to the vehicle, records their activity, and can trigger surveillance cameras at the entry and exit points, or log and bill back parking charges to the customer. To make installations easy, the company adds, the system is designed to be integrated with existing parking gates, with an option to make the parking lot unmanned.
