  3. 3. Evolution of Curbside Management
  4. 4. On-Street Analytics • Networked wireless sensors report to a central server • Can be linked to curbside or multi-space meters • Real time data feeds to web-based applications • Point-of-violation feeds to enforcement personnel • Constant data stream regarding length of stay, occupancy and turnover • Supports variable demand pricing initiatives
  5. 5. ALPR Systems
  6. 6. ALPR Applications • Loss prevention • Scofflaw detection • Permit enforcement • Time-limit enforcement (i.e. auto-chalking) • Access control
  7. 7. ALPR Considerations PROS • Force multiplier • Enhanced compliance • Increased revenues • Robust data stream • Elevated security • Paired data capture CONS • Data management • Legal liability • Cost to acquire • Database maintenance • Read issues • Credential confusion
  8. 8. Parking Guidance Systems
  9. 9. Parking Guidance Systems BENEFITS • Recapture of up to 10% of usable capacity • Increased revenues • Decreased CO2 emissions • Elevated customer service • Reduced wear and tear LIABILITIES • Cost of acquisition • Cost of installation • Cost of maintenance • Increased utility costs • Elevated process speeds • Increased risk of accidents
  10. 10. Internet Sales
  11. 11. Considerations • Will elevate cash controls and customer service • Better pre-event data = better event management • Higher process speeds than collect on entry and/ or exit formats • Opens the door to variable demand pricing • May require significant equipment upgrades • Still requires staffing during events
  12. 12. Handheld Applications
  13. 13. Handheld Apps • Consolidate data or functions in a single source • Enhance the customer experience • Improve wayfinding and expedite travel to destination • Can enhance revenues • Raise life safety concerns • Require support infrastructure • Go great with ranch or blue cheese dressing
  14. 14. Parting Thoughts • Technology is a tool, not a cure-all • Solid policy and procedure need to be part of the mix • Know the ‘why’ long before you worry about the ‘what’ • Use every feature • Know the benefit
