In 2013, Q-Free was contracted to provide a Parking Guidance System (PGS) at Square One to help direct traffic and reduce congestion. Ultrasonic Directional Sensors (USDS) were utilized to provide level counting systems for the properties three garages, and induction loops were used to monitor their five surface lots. The counts provided by the parking equipment relay to various roadway LED signs located around the property.
In 2016, Q-free was contracted to expand the system into two newly constructed garages, and three surface lots. The expansion also ushered in the integration of an online interactive parking map using Q-Free’s API tool. The parking map provides real time parking updates that patrons can check before arriving.
