Calgary Parking Authority – Canada

The Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) is responsible for all parking policies, and manages the public parking facilities for the City of Calgary.

The CPA required a city wide parking guidance solution to make parking easier and more efficient, while also monitoring and managing the quantity of monthly and daily parkers.

Q-Free provided a customized Parking Guidance System (PGS) utilizing ultrasonic directional sensors to monitor vehicle traffic at the entrance and exits of each facility as well as the parking levels within.

To monitor each individual parking space, ultrasonic single-space sensors were used. Roadway signs, indicating space availability with the ability to show customizable variable messages, were installed at facility entrances.

The Q-Free Visual Control Center software package is used to manage the system, providing a user interface and statistical information as well as interfaces to customized LCD information screens throughout the system.
