Innovative solution for managing Taxi Short Fares

Imagine arriving at a destination after a long flight, followed by having to wait in line for taxis to then be faced with an unhappy driver because your destination is a mere five minutes away from the airport. This would not leave a good first impression of that city.

Airports now face with a true need to implement a proactive taxi management system that will properly incentivise drivers to take on short fares. Brisbane Airport was recognised for implementing an innovative solution that cut down queuing times for drivers who completed a short fare within an allocated time allowance. For more information on that project from the Taxi Council please see this link.

The proactive taxi management system solution developed by Sensor Dynamics and installed by Brisbane International utilises Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras at taxi feeder entry points and airport precinct exit points. The system also includes integration into taxi location data from MTData to GPS locate the vehicles. Geo-fencing is then used to standardise “short fare” criteria to identify taxis eligible to jump the taxi rank queue based on their previous fare.

This short fare system combats drivers speeding through their jobs through real-time distance based clocking and allows for clever operational analytics and reporting to be performed to identify continuous improvement opportunities.

Stopping Tailgaters Just Got Easy

Stop Tailgaters with ANPR

Car parks often suffer from repeat abuse by users buying tickets and tailgating out to avoid payment. As you would image this activity is quite common at airports and city parking complexes.

But how do you stop tailgaters?

Here’s a video showing how with the use of ANPR tailgaters can be recorded and refused future entry.

New Victorian Number Plates

In the coming weeks the Victorian Government will release a new series of number plates which bear a numeric, alpha, alpha, numeric, alpha, alpha layout (eg: 1AA 1AA). Sensor Dynamics is constantly testing and evolving its plate reading algorithms across each state and as such is prepared for the advent of these new plates in Victoria.  The time invested in fine tuning each state’s algorithm is ongoing and extensive.

All of our systems under a maintenance contract will have the plate reading algorithm updated as part of the scheduled service. This is part of the standard service we offer as part of maintaining the high accuracy systems we sell.

We suggest that any clients that have systems that are not covered under a support and maintenance agreement to contact Sensor Dynamics on (03) 9870 0585 to arrange for a plate read update.

 

Help Us Support You

Here at Sensor Dynamics, we understand that once a client has purchased one of our systems, it becomes an essential part of their business model. When taking up a Sensor Dynamics Support and Maintenance plan,  you can rely on high quality support that will maximise productivity and profitability. We have the experience to maintain large, complex LPR systems in such a way as to minimise downtime and repair costs. With three different levels of support offered, you will be able to get the backing your business needs to thrive.

Set Yourself Apart From The Competition

Businesses are quickly coming to realise that the car park is not just a place for customers to leave their vehicle. It is the place where customers get their first impression of the business. Many car park operators are coming up with creative ways to improve this experience for their customers. Services such as valet parking, lost vehicle locating, fixing flat tyres, charging dead batteries and 24/7on site service are becoming the norm. What are you doing to keep up with this trend? Talk to our sales team today to see how we can set your car park apart from the competition. (03) 9870 0585.

Auto Entry & Exit Using Online Reservations

With the idea of online reservations becoming increasingly popular, this idea has been applied to parking using LPR. By logging on and entering one’s details, including number plate details, the parking system can grant entry and exit easily. The addition of online details also gives the system the capability welcome and bid farewell to customers with personalised greetings based on their plate.

Enhance The Convenience Of Your Car Park

Streamline the car park entry and exit process further by introducing auto charging. Known vehicles can be setup with an account which will  be linked with their licence plate. Upon entry and exit, the parking system identifies the number plate and automatically opens the gate. The account linked to the licence plate is charged automatically. No fussing around with tickets or exit columns, just enter and exit as you need to.
