Surely, when you go to the cafe, eat or buy things in small car park shops, you are very familiar with how to keep the car with the number plate on the paper card or write the card number directly to the saddle and watch face. In general, these methods are simple and easy to implement with small and medium yards but the real security is not high, easy to be used by looters to fake or fake cards, it is easy to lose the car. So, I want to introduce you to a new parking solution called CNV Parking. Its remarkable advantages are safer, more convenient and starting investment costs from 500 thousand / month.
CNV Parking is a parking application on the phone, NFC technology application to combine phone and magnetic card to make a convenient smart parking system, easy to use. A CNV Parking parking system consists of 2 main applications, 1 for management and 1 for parking staff as follows:
- My CNV Parking used for management or car owners
- CNV Parking used for car park staff
Welcome interface when starting the application
First of all, with the Parking CNV application, the owner can set up stages to manage one or more different parking lots. Corresponding to each parking lot, the manager will be able to set up settings to control the parking lot according to his wishes. Including creating account for each specific employee, managing vehicle card, setting fee by turn or by month, managing the parking amount of the yard, …
Quickly see the current status of parking lots
Manage parking staff, know who is working at the time
Set fee rates for each type of vehicle, specific time frame or choose a monthly rate
For parking application, parking staff will use it to swipe the card from the phone, using the camera to record the image of the vehicle owner and the vehicle. Based on the time the vehicle enters the yard as well as the pre-set fee, when swiping the card to retrieve the vehicle, the amount payable will be displayed accordingly.
Swipe the card to the back of the phone to activate the recording of vehicle information
Select the corresponding vehicle type, press "Car in" to take a picture of the license plate
When the car comes out, swipe the phone into the phone to show the collated image and the amount of the vehicle to pay
After the trial, I found the parking solution developed by CNV has 3 main advantages. First and foremost is higher security than traditional ways of keeping paper cards or numbers. First of all, even if a stranger or someone who has obtained a vehicle card from a vehicle owner cannot get the vehicle because there is a collated image of the vehicle being brought in. Besides, each card that CNV uses outside the serial number also has its own serial number, which is difficult to simulate or fake.
Photos taken at the car to the yard to help compare when taking the car, reducing the risk of tea thieves stealing cards and stealing cars
In particular, when the owner of the vehicle notices the card, the employee can immediately lock the card and disable the lost card. At that time, anyone who picked up the card that brought out the car will be detected immediately, swiping will show the card was locked right on the phone.
When retrieving the locked card, a new manager can restore it if finding out the lost card through the My CNV Parking application.
It is necessary to swipe a car card that has been locked to confirm its normal status
The next advantage that CNV Parking offers is that it simplifies the work of managers, car keepers and visitors. For the owner of a parking lot, just sitting from a distance has captured the operational status of one or more parking lots at the same time. Especially not having to worry about revenue and expenditure because all the money is constantly and fully updated on the application. For employees, the operation will be faster and less pressure on the risk of theft. As for the car keepers, the preservation of magnetic cards is also more convenient than other paper or card cards.
A small point I see CNV is quite interested in developing applications is the phone provided by CNV has MobiLock lock function, only for using 2 CNV Parking applications. This avoids the parking staff taking advantage of their own working phones.
The final advantage of CNV Parking is that it is easier to set up, lower investment costs, do not need to arrange many devices such as a smart parking system in commercial centers and supermarkets. Currently CNV is providing 1 solution package for about 500 thousand VND / month for 1 parking lot, including 1 phone with 4G sim card and 50 magnetic cards. If the owner of the parking lot needs more equipment and cards, this cost will increase. I see this price is quite reasonable considering the benefits that this application brings.
Currently this solution has only a few minor limitations. That is, each car can only capture 1 photo so sometimes it will not be able to clearly identify the owner as the parking lot of smart cars. Next, sometimes taking photos not in the direction from the back, the license plate information is missing or incorrect. In addition, the phone needs to be constantly battery powered to operate all day and the application still needs to be connected to the network to operate.
The good news is that his friend at CNV said that they are still researching so that the integrated AI inside the application can read license plates accurately and faster even when shooting at different angles. Also, in the next 2.0 update, the application will be able to work offline when the network connection is lost. Further, CNV also intends to expand more features related to management, statistics from this parking application, such as timekeeping for employees, tracking the number of visitors coming into the store, .v..v
