Intelligent Wayfinding Signs Enhance Drivers' Experience

2015/01/20
Project
Misleading inaccurate sign posts that display only the number of available parking spaces provide only limited assistance, that's why many parking lots these days use digital signage to indicate available parking spaces. For this project, the customer wanted to construct an intelligent parking service system at their company facilities. The required system needed to identify and record all visitor information, display a welcome message with a diagram showing the location of the appointed parking space and all visitor information to be transmitted to a central control room for security purposes. Advantech’s digital signage players and displays satisfied all of the customer’s requirementsfor real-time information and multiple displays.
 
System Solution
Numerous large-screen displays connected to an Advantech DS-570 digital signage player were installed at the parking lot entrance and aisles. Powered by an Intel® Celeron® N2930/J1900 quad-core processor with an integrated NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M graphics module, DS-570 supports not only ultra-high-definition content, but also up to four simultaneous display outputs via DP++*1, HDMI*2,vand VGA. Thus, the use of DS-570 drastically reduced installationcosts.After visitors’ vehicles are identified, real-time parking information is transmitted to the digital signage displays and central control room via a network connection provided by DS-570. Once the visitor’s information is confirmed, a welcome message with a diagram showing the appointed parking space will be displayed. The DS-570 player was equipped with content management software that facilitates the creation, dispatch, and management of multimedia content to provide a hardware/software ready signage solution.
