Magnetic parking ticket:

  • The ticket dispenser issues a magnetic parking ticket at the entrance when a vehicle enters into the parking lot.
  • And the parking management system records settled information on the magnetic field after receiving the parking fee.

  • However, the magnetic head need to touch the parking ticket for reading and writing the data.
  • So the operator has to replace the magnetic heads often, and if the maintenance is not smooth, the reading and writing error may be issued.

[ RF TAG Tags for managing monthly parking ]

  • Traditionally, most parking lots have used the RF TAG to manage monthly vehicles.
  • Since this method has operated separately form the revenue management system for visiting vehicles.
  • That’s why, some drivers try to get a illegal parking by using a RF TAG and an hourly ticket.
  • Because the parking system stores the RF TAG information in the memory, and if the reader reads the RF TAG, the system checks the validity period.
  • The RF TAG management basically has the anti pass-back function in order to prevent illegal parking.
  • However it can not prevent the illegal use of monthly vehicles in the automatic parking system because a monthly driver can rend the RF TAG to someone.
