Smart cameras are a fundamental part of parking guidance systems and they contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
With more than 40 years of experience in the parking guidance systems (PGS) field, Schick Electronic is a pioneer in the indoor parking guidance market. So far it has equipped more than 500,000 parking spaces around the world, meeting the requirements of the most demanding clients.
Innovation, accuracy and efficiency make Schick Electronic’s system one of the most reliable on the market. Its Signal-Park range of products have features that save drivers time, while simplifying their parking experience. Schick Electronic is always striving to be at the forefront of technology, which is why, to complete its compatible product range, it has developed two new products: the SP4C outdoor and indoor camera-based detection systems. These products are a new step toward implementing artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks into ITS. Outdoor parking monitoring A single SP4-CAM camera can monitor up to 100 parking spaces and can be integrated into existing Ethernet networks.
Furthermore it is easy to install and set up, and has a low cost of ownership. The camera requires almost no additional maintenance. It also works in low light conditions and in poor weather. The SP4-CAM camera has been on the market since the second quarter of 2018. An indoor guidance system Schick Electronic’s new Indoor Camera System is also based on AI technology and includes license plate recognition. This allows new services – such as space reservations, and lost and found services for vehicles – to be implemented into parking lot operations. Schick Electronic develops its high-end cameras at its premises in Switzerland. One camera can monitor up to six parking spaces simultaneously and can be easily interconnected with other cameras in the Ethernet network, thereby reducing installation and maintenance costs.
