University of Nebraska-Lincoln discusses new RFID parking garage technology

Thursday, April 4, 2013

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) is working to upgrade its parking software system, possibly with the addition of RFID-based parking garage technology that could be used to monitor available parking spaces on campus, according to The Daily Nebraskan.

The technology would enable only valid-permit holders access into the university parking garage, thereby reducing the number of violators and also reducing parking enforcement costs. The RFID technology also speeds up the access for entering parking garages; no more driving up, roll down the window to get a ticket and wait for the gate to open.

Dan Carpenter, director of Parking & Transit Services at UNL said, permits for the Stadium Drive parking garage have included the RFID technology since 2009, but it has been too expensive to implement the technology at the University’s three other garages until now, as the cost of the system has begun to decrease.

In addition, the new parking garage technology could eventually lead to a Website or smart phone app that could be used by students and staff to give real-time data updates about on-campus parking availability.
