i+D3 – Parking solutions. Stand 143
After our participation in the Amsterdam edition of this year, from i+D3 we will be present again with many new features at Intertraffic México, in the parking exhibition.
These news are focused on technological solutions for car parks, with a special mention on the use of new technologies and online services to increase the control and security in car parks. These are the products that you can you find if you visit our stand:
Online antifraud system for small car parks
Most car parks in Mexico and other Latin American countries are mostly small facilities that suffer daily losses of money. This is due to the multiple frauds and thefts of their employees or the vehicles themselves, since they don’t have a system that registers all the accesses that occur to the same. This is undoubtedly a great drain on profits, turning the business into a bottomless pit.
The online anti-fraud system is focused on these small car parks, in order to definitively end these frauds and increase security. For this, online software and hardware are joined together to offer automation of access and billing, performing a permanent and comprehensive online audit and control.
Car park access via mobile
The technology evolution and the use of the mobile phone in recent years has meant a real change in how people interact and perform different activities daily. And the parking sector doesn’t escape on this demand.
In our stand we will present the latest innovation in parking applications, with multiple functionalities that will facilitate parking for drivers. Among them, the most notable novelty is the access to the car park via Bluetooth, opening the barrier through the mobile and paying the stay from it, forgetting both tickets and ATMs. An app is undoubtedly an effective tool to retain users and attract potential customers.

The system includes multiple online services designed to improve control, attract people and automatice the accesses. These services are modular, that is, they are optional and adaptable for each car park and its needs. These modules are:
- Online control module. A remote panel that will help to monitor, control and manage the car park, anytime, anywhere. Reports of alarms, list of live access or the state of installed equipment, among many other functionalities.
- Attracting and loyalty module. Focused on getting more sales through a personalized web page. The car park will receive bookings and attract new users interested in your offer.
- Automation module. Combination of hardware and software for automatic access to the car park, through Bluetooth technology or through license plate number.
S200: The compactest entry column of the market
Finally, in terms of hardware, i+D3 presents its new parking equipment: an entry column for car parks that integrates a LPR camera. It is undoubtedly a equipment that has read the needs of the parking sector for the future, including in a small body of steel technologies that allow multiple access methods, such as Bluetooth for access via app, RFID technology, code reader or the traditional ticket printer.
But undoubtedly, one of its most notable features is the inclusion of an LPR camera, recognizing the license plates of the vehicles that circulate in the opposite lane.
