Park Assist Chosen to Provide High-End Parking Experience at Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport

Park Assist has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF). Just 10 minutes from downtown, the International Airport supports over 4 million travelers per year with a high-volume of both passenger and cargo traffic.

Park Assist’s M4 smart-sensor system will serve the airport’s 3,000 space parking structure. With the goal of enhancing the user experience, the Louisville Regional Airport Authority was eager to install a PGS that offered predictability and security, as well as a VIP parking journey for each patron.

Park Assist’s camera-based M4 PGS will monitor occupancy on levels 2 and 3 of the garage, while the S1 outdoor solution will be used to calculate rooftop availability. Along with the M4 and S1 technology, Park Assist will also install its state-of-the-art, digital Variable Messaging Signs (VMS). The signs enable parking facility operators to create and broadcast an expansive set of custom graphics and digital messages in a variety of different colors. Coupled with split screen, scrolling, and toggling capabilities, these digital signs display a vast array of occupancy data, enabling visitors to make informed decisions upon their arrival at the entry lanes.

As wayfinding signage guides users to appropriate parking areas within the garage, Park Assist’s exclusive M4 smart-sensor system amplifies the guidance experience by indicating which specific spaces are available, occupied, or premium using color-coded LED lights.

Additionally, the airport’s PGS will also come equipped with several add-on features. Integrating with TIBA Parking Systems, Park Assist’s customer-centric Park Finder software module ensures that guests can easily pinpoint their vehicle upon returning to the garage. Utilizing either the Park Assist mobile app or a Park Finder enabled TIBA pay station, travelers are guided to the exact location of their vehicle. The Park Finder Find Your Car locator scours a database of vehicles in the garage and identifies the correct car, providing step-by-step directions on how to get there.
