Omni Dallas 'lights' drivers' way to perfect parkingOmni Dallas 'lights' drivers' way to perfect parkinghttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=123732016-03-07T06:00:00Z2016-03-07T18:50:00Z

​​DALLAS - INDECT USA, a provider of sensor-based parking guidance systems, has completed ultrasonic parking guidance installation at the Dallas Omni Hotel and Convention Center in downtown Dallas.

The Dallas Omni Hotel is the first and only hotel in the United States to offer parking guidance technology.

Installed as part of the $400 million Dallas Convention Center redevelopment, the parking guidance program features the installation of 347 parking sensors, as well as a network of LED signs informing drivers how many open parking spaces are available and where they can be found.

The sensors are located above each parking space, offering signals that are visible from several hundred yards away of where open spaces can be found, and what type of parking is permitted in an individual space.

Different colors indicate each space’s status: green for available, red for occupied, blue for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) parking and white for one-hour parking. 

The LED signs at the end of each driving aisle also indicate how many spaces, and what types of spaces, are available in each parking aisle.

Additionally, the sensors provide management benefits by collecting data about lengths of stay, occupancy and usage, which will help Omni Hotels & Resorts establish parking management strategies for hotel guests and visitors to the adjacent convention center.

Typically, busy garages only experience 90 to 95 percent occupancy.

The INDECT parking guidance system is designed to eliminate this loss by encouraging parkers to enter the garage, even when it outwardly appears to be full.
