State College, Pa. Deploys Genetec’s Parking-Enforcement System

During the first two weeks, 2,000 cars eligible to be booted were identified

State College, Pa., a college town with a population of 42,000, has deployed the Pay-by-Plate Parking System offered by Genetec, a provider of physical security and unified Internet protocol security solutions.
By deploying Genetec’s system, State College is unifying its parking system, which had up to six different parking permit and parking lot systems, according to Charles DeBow, the borough’s parking manager.
The Pay-by-Plate Parking System features Genetec’s AutoVu License Plate Recognition System that automatically captures license plate characters, vehicle images, time stamps and GPS coordinates increasing enforcement of parking restrictions, the company said.
In addition, State College’s parking enforcement vehicle has been outfitted with Genetec’s AutoVu LPR cameras, thereby enabling license-plate numbers to be automatically captured and used to enforce parking permits, enforce time-limited zones and conduct parking-lot checks, Genetec said. The images and data collected from the LPR cameras can be read in the enforcement vehicle on a laptop that has been outfitted with Genetec’s AutoVu Patroller software, the company said.
During the first two weeks the AutoVu system was operational, the system identified about 2,000 cars eligible to be booted, DeBow said. “At this rate, we expect the system to pay for itself in 18 months or less,” he added.
