GSM parking is payment of parking fees with a mobile phone. To use the service, a customer will have to register first. After registration the customer receives a card, to be placed behind the front window. This card contains a unique personal number and serves as a digital parking ticket.
A customer calls the operator of the service to activate the parking. In this call the personal number and a tariff number are given. The customer is also identified by his mobile phone number to prevent fraud. When itís time to move, customers call the operators number again to deactivate the parking.
Parking attendents scan the card behind the front window to validate if a customer has activated the parking.
GSM parking aims to make parking a less stressful experience. Not only do you no longer have to predict how long you need to park, but also the cashless system means no more hunting for change or a working pay & display machine
