Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) has introduced a facility to transform the airport parking experience for travellers. Passengers travelling from Mumbai experienced this advanced parking system recently. The newly-installed Parking Guidance System at CSMIA’s Multi-Level Car Parking at Terminal 2, combines cutting-edge technology with thoughtful design and structure, thereby ensuring travellers enjoy seamless and stress-free parking.
The Camera-Based Sensor system at CSMIA’s Terminal 2 parking, not only offers effortless parking but also ensures enhanced security surpassing all previous standards. The parking Sensor functions by offering real-time visual guidance through RGB Occupancy LEDs for every parking space. These LEDs use live colour-changing lights to accurately reflect the occupancy status of each individual parking bay. Furthermore, this technology operates with exceptional accuracy and high reliability in all conditions.
CSMIA’s new parking solution promises to streamline every aspect of the parking journey. LED indicators guide straight to the available parking spaces at any given time. With safety and security remaining a top priority for CSMIA, this cutting-edge technology not only enhances convenience, but also places a strong emphasis on security as the sensors capture the license plate information for improved safety.
In cases where travellers have experienced difficulty in recalling the location of their parked vehicle, the “Find My Car” option in the parking guidance system is a feature that will effortlessly help locate the vehicle. This can be done by simply entering details such as the license plate number at the nearby kiosk, eliminating the need for taking photographs of the parked vehicle section. Another noteworthy feature is the real-time monitoring system, which offers video clips and images depicting parking occupancy. Parking supervisors will utilise the heat map dashboard for up-to-the-minute insights into the parking area. The sensor enables customized zone parking, which defines distinct parking zones with unique LED colours. This approach, hence, contributes to more efficient parking management.
Furthermore, through the provision of occupancy reports and alarms through scheduled events, the parking management team gains complete oversight and control over the parking facility. This enables them to respond efficiently to any necessary actions.
CSMIA also implemented FASTag solution in November 2022 to enhance its Multilevel Car Parking (MLCP) system. FASTag is an electronic toll collection system in India. This upgrade is an addition to CSMIA’s best-in-class technology that benefits passengers and greeters visiting CSMIA & enhances their travel experience. With more such initiatives, CSMIA intends to further invest in digitalization of passenger experiences for enabling seamless movement across the airport.
