Android Parking Software

OperationsCommander leverages the advanced features of the Google Android operating system.  This creates an Android parking software solution which offers many features including in the field remote data access.  Most Android devices can be used and can be linked to a belt clipped Bluetooth printer for violation printing.  While doing parking enforcement the Security and Safety Patrol (SSP) can query plates and take pictures of the vehicles showing the infraction.  As well, while in the field the parking safety office or system dispatcher can push notifications to the device.

Parking Enforcement in Your Palm

Android parking softwareOperationsCommander mobile offers many advanced features for in-the-field patrol staff.  Remote data access is key to the system architecture and automatically syncs data to the main office.  The data sync allows the device to push new violations to the server.  Remote data sync also pulls new vehicle details in the same transaction.  As violations are written and pushed to the server, they can be available to end users.  These users can pay or appeal a violation often before the patrol physically returns to the dispatch office.

Vehicle searches can be performed in several different ways, including: typing the plate directly into the device, using voice recognition and speaking the plate directly.  The latest addition is simply taking a picture and using the built in license plate recognition (LPR) engine to recognize the plate.  Many users enjoy the LPR picture search since it requires limited interaction with the device.

If your installation is using LPR static cameras, data from these devices can also be pushed to the handheld.  With an entry camera, the vehicle can be chalked when it enters the parking lot.  When the device scans the plate at a later time the system identifies that the vehicle has been in the lot since it was chalked on entry.  If the user purchases parking from a parking self-serve kiosk, the virtual chalk record is cleared.

Devices Talk to Each Other

Any picture that is taken is stored and available when a violation is issued.  Using the handheld, the Security and Safety Patrol (SSP) #1 can virtual chalk a vehicle and when SSP #2 comes by an hour later they can leverage the shared chalk data.  If SSP #2 issues a ticket to the vehicle, the virtual chalk image created by SSP #1 is included with the violation.  When the user logs into the cloud portal, they are presented with all of the images reducing appeals and customer interaction.

Notice in the below images that the parker cannot argue this ticket.  The vehicle was captured at 10:56am and remains on-site and in the same position at 1:39pm.  All of the surrounding data is shared between all of the OPS-COM connected devices (LPR, handheld, and mobile cameras).

With this advanced technology, there really is No Place To Hide!
