We implemented an iOS and Android app for wireless control of a semi-automatic multiparker system for a leading manufacturer of parking systems. Owners of a parking space in such systems can register their parking space in our app and link it to the system. Once registered, the user can request his parking space wirelessly via the app – identical to the existing infrared or radio remote control of the system.
He can also trigger the closing of the parking space gate via the app after entering or exiting his parking space. This is done by confirming the colour code of the LED display of the parking facility, either by directly entering the key in the app or by simply pointing his mobile device’s camera at the LED, whereby the colour code is automatically recognised and processed by the app. The latter constitutes an innovation in our customer’s competitive environment.
A specifically programmed single-board computer was used as a module component for extending the system control, which also spans the local WLAN and Bluetooth network. The registration of a parking space and the unambiguous assignment to a specific lifting platform in a dedicated system is carried out via an individual, encrypted QR code, which the user receives directly from the manufacturer and is scanned through the app. Colour code recognition via smartphone camera was programmed using specific image decoding algorithms per platform (iOS and Android).
