Owner: Des Moines International Airport Location: Des Moines, IA Year Completed: 2019
In the past, travelers arriving at Des Moines International Airport often circled aimlessly through the multi-level parking ramp looking for a place to park. On average, 15% of parking garage stalls go unused because people do not know where available spaces are located. When drivers leave the ramp frustrated and park elsewhere, customer satisfaction suffers and parking revenue is lost.
To better serve its customers and optimize parking space utilization and revenues, the Airport selected Baker Group to provide technical expertise, installation and service the new parking guidance system. Believed to be the first electronically guided parking system in Iowa, this project leverages Baker Group’s expertise in design, prefabrication, power, voice/data/video, parking revenue controls, and 24/7/365 service.

During an incredible period of growth and expansion at the University of Oklahoma (OU), many new buildings had been constructed at the expense of existing parking.
Rather than rush to add more spaces, Kris Glenn, OU’s director of parking services, decided to maximize what they had. “There’s no doubt that our parking had become scarce. However, we also knew there were plenty of underutilized parking areas on campus. We just needed to help our faculty, staﬀ, and students ﬁnd it,” Glenn says. That was the beginning of OU’s Smarter Parking Initiative.
INDECT USA, the industry’s leading provider of parking guidance systems, announces a breakthrough in the quest to provide garage owners with a plug-and-play parking guidance solution with their new ‘out of the box’ training set.
The new software enables the INDECT parking guidance system to go live immediately, producing accuracy rates in excess of 99% within days of installation.
“All other parking guidance systems on the market require sensors to observe cars coming and going for their algorithms to learn and achieve accuracy,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA. “This can take up to 60 days before the system is ready to go live.”
INDECT USA today announces the newest version of their popular Car Locator software, version 2.0. This software allows customers to quickly and easily find their car using on-site kiosks or the INDECT Car Locator App.
The latest release features the unique ability to quickly and easily locate customers’ vehicles in any parking garage or open-air lot while maintaining complete owner privacy and complying with all applicable state laws.
“Previously, some parking garages were prevented from offering our original Car Locator feature as it uses license plate recognition technology and this conflicts with their local state laws concerning privacy,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA.
INDECT USA, the industry’s leading provider of parking guidance systems, today reveals their unique, fish-eye surveillance module to the US market.
Unlike any other parking guidance camera on the market, the INDECT surveillance module offers ultra-high definition, full-color images that are streamed in real-time, providing complete coverage of the entire parking garage, not just the parking space.
Sydney, AUSTRALIA (June 3, 2019) INDECT Australasia, in collaboration with Access Parking Control Pty Ltd, jointly announces the installation of their world-class parking guidance system at four newly constructed train stations in North Western Sydney, Australia.
A total of 1849 ultra-sonic, single-space sensors were installed at Cherrybrook Station, Bella Vista Station, Kellyville Station and Hills Showground Station as part of the NSW Government’s $7.3bn rail project.
“What we’re seeing in Australia is part of a world-wide trend to make parking garages near train stations and public transport hubs more efficient and user friendly.” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA and CEO of INDECT Australasia. “If it’s quick and easy to find a space it encourages more people to use public transport rather than relying on private vehicles.”
