One of the most frequently heard complaints from air travelers, about airport parking, is the the time it takes to find a space in terminal parking garages. Given the increased, albeit necessary, security measures in place, going to the airport is now that much more stressful on the average traveler. It is no wonder why ride sharing companies have made a dent in airport parking revenue. Why add the hassle and extra time needed to park when travelers can be dropped off directly in front their terminal entrance?

We are extremely grateful for his contributions in building the foundation for INDECT in North America,” said Herwich. “Dale has offered to stay through December to help Stephen with the transition.”
HEB has again chosen the INDECT parking guidance system to feature at its new premium store at Meyerland Plaza, San Antonio. This will be the fourth installation of an INDECT parking guidance system at HEB stores.
Thanks to the resounding success of the first three INDECT installations at Bellaire, The Heights and Washington Avenue in Houston, Meyerland customers will soon be able to experience hassle-free parking as well as HEB’s popular curbside pickup/delivery program for themselves.
HEB’s curbside pickup/delivery program offers customers the convenience of being able to order their groceries online or by phone and collect them on their way home or at their earliest convenience.
INDECT USA today announces the successful installation of their premier ultrasonic parking guidance system at Des Moines International Airport, IOWA, with their local partner The Baker Group.
A total of 1398 individual sensors and 27 wayfinding signs were installed in the airport’s parking garage. The signs are strategically located at each decision-point in the garage and include easy-to-follow guidance for travelers with a disability.
LED RGB sensors are located above each parking spot and clearly identify each space as open (green), occupied (red) or handicapped (blue). The sensors are highly reliable and can be individually programmed to accommodate changing parking needs.
“The system at Des Moines International Airport has been expanded to include the counts from the outdoor parking lots. This way the INDECT system can track availability across the whole airport, not just the garage.” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA.

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.
