In line of working to rise up with a happy city in one hand, and keeping up with the latest technologies in the other hand, Dubai is always keen to implement what is best for visitors and residents comfort. One of these unique technologies is adopting a new generation of intelligent parking by introducing the Park Assist System.
This new system is now being used at Mall of the Emirates, one of Dubai’s most popular malls, that is home to an indoor ski slope, a 4D cinema and over 8,000 parking spaces. And since the mall has this huge number of parking spaces, shoppers often find it a bit uneasy to find a parking, or often lost their cars’ parking lot after shopping.
For such reasons, comes the bright new solution for “frazzled shoppers”: Park Assist system. It is a smart device that uses innovative technology, including M4 sensors and smart kiosks, to save time and stress by helping shoppers find their car in a matter of few minutes.
If you are interested, here how it works:
According to Smart Dubai website: “Park Assist sensors are installed above every parking spot in the mall’s 5-story garage. In addition to its powerful sensors, the devices are ringed by led lights that shine green when a parking spot is available, and red when the spot is taken. These highly-visible lights make it very easy to see available spots, saving mall-goers from endlessly driving up and down aisles just trying to find a space”.
“Once you are finished shopping (or skiing, eating or taking in a movie), finding a parked car with Park Assist is extremely simple. Mall visitors first need to enter their car plate number in one of the several kiosks installed around the parking lot. Park Assist will then locate the car, take a photo of it and display it on the kiosk screen so the visitor can confirm it is indeed their car that is being located. Once confirmed a detailed map will show the exact location of the car”.
However, it is not only Mall of the Emirates that uses Park Assist, it is also currently operational in two other malls in Dubai: City Centre Diera and City Centre Mirdiff.
