Dunnes Stores- Cornelscourt MSCP- Electronic Parking Guidance Information System

A.G.K. Ltd. has recently installed its’ CP-600 Electronic Parking Guidance Information (PGI) System at the 350-space 3-level Multi-Storey Car Park at Dunnes Stores’ flagship Cornelscourt Shopping Centre in Dublin. The system includes A.G.K.’s overhead Ultrasonic Vehicle Detection Sensors at the four main entry and exit points to the busy multi-storey car park which accurately count vehicle throughput at these locations, allowing for the calculation of occupancy data and transmission of real-time parking space availability information to customers via an electronic parking display at the main car park entrance. This parking guidance information encourages greater use of the multi-storey parking facility and diverts traffic from the adjacent surface parking areas to ensure improved traffic flow at the car parks. The system also incorporates a ‘Free Text’ messaging capability which enables the display of centre opening hours, traffic and other relevant information to customers.

Wexford Town Centre Parking Information System

The 1st phase of a new ‘Urban Area Parking Information System’ for Wexford Town Centre was installed and commissioned by A.G.K. Ltd. in early December. Five large-scale ‘Full Matrix Variable Message Signs (VMS)’ were installed at each of the main approach routes to Wexford town, which display a full range of parking and traffic-related information to drivers at these critical decision points on their route into the town centre. The VMS’ include full graphics capabilities which allow for the display of images and symbols as well as full text messaging functionality and the next stage of the project will see the town centre car parks being equipped with vehicle detection systems, thereby enabling the display of real-time parking space availability information on the signs.

The Marker Hotel- Totem VMS Unit

A.G.K. Ltd. has installed a large customised Totem Sign at Dublin’s newest 5-star hotel, The Marker in Grand Canal Docks. The new Totem Sign incorporates a bi-colour LED Module which displays the occupancy status of the basement car park, operated by Q-Park Ireland, for customers of the hotel.
