Where did you park your car?
Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief
Whilst Siemens have taken all the press coverage for this clever idea which will go live in BAA’s new Terminal 5 Car Park (when it opens in March 2008) it is Inspired Signage technology from AMX that is driving the screen part of the solution.
Basically, Inspired Signage’s Babel application queries the ANPR (Automatic number plate recognition) system, matches the number plate data against where the car has been parked and then renders a 3D map of how the customer can get to the ‘zone’ where they have parked.
Clever idea, neat solution, good win for Inspired Signage.
