X-Parking , a smart parking solution, was developed by III and incorporates two key technologies-“smart sensoring” and “indoor dynamic navigation.” The solution integrates various software components, hardware devices, and vehicles information through multiple communication technologies, providing customers with innovative services through a smartphone app that includes dynamic parking-spot navigation, dynamic parked - location navigation, emergency assistance, anti-theft for registered users, entertainment/news broadcasts, and online payment. It is the world's first integrated smart-parking service that combines convenience, safety, and energy conservation.
X-Parking was first deployed at the underground parking facility at Banqiao Station. The service's outstanding performance has attracted many foreign interests in investing in parking-management companies using X-Parking technology with the intention of introducing the system to Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, etc. The domestic parking-management industry also intends to introduce the service to northern and central Taiwan. So far, X-parking has been deployed at 6 parking facilities, including Taichung International Airport, National Taichung Theater, and Xinzhuang Sports Park.
The core technology of X-Parking System has already received two awards from the 2016 APICTA Awards and the 2016 Taiwan Cloud Computing and IoT Association.
It was also granted 4 international patents in the Netherlands, U.S., Taiwan, and Mainland China. Banqiao Station, which has deployed the X-Parking system, also received the Golden Thumb Award.
Looking forward, III will continue its collaboration with the hardware and software vendors to provide innovative integrated solutions with an eye toward the international market. Possible application areas for the precision indoor-navigation systems include retail and healthcare.
