IPS Group2018 IPI Conference & Expo, June 3-6, Orlando, Fla., is the world’s largest educational and networking event for parking and transportation professionals.  Each year, attendees gather to learn about the latest innovations in parking and network with industry leaders from around the globe in an effort to advance and strengthen the parking industry.

For the second year in a row, IPS Group was recognized with the IPI People’s Choice Award, a designation that is given to just one out of more than 250 exhibitors. On Wednesday, June 6, a panel of criteria judges awarded IPS with the People’s Choice Award. The prestigious honor is given to the booth that displays the most uniqueness, effectiveness of marketing, message, and creativity. One of the highlights of this year’s booth was the newly unveiled Innovation Studio. IPS invited visitors to “See the future of Smart Cities through the lens of IPS Group,” through interactive demos of IPS Smart Parking applications. The Studio offers users a glimpse into the future of Smart Parking, including the industry’s first augmented reality parking application.

Augmented reality (AR) overlays virtual images on the real-world environment, which is viewed through AR-enabled glasses or mobile devices. In a parking application, AR glasses would enable a meter technician to look down a city block lined with parking meters and easily identify meter faults or allow an enforcement officer to issue citations with real-time pop-up notifications on expired spaces.

In addition, IPS showcased its state-of-the-art innovation, future-proofed and scalable to meet the needs of Smart Parking programs and cities of any size. Interactive demos included:

  • Enforcement & Permit Management Solutions
  • PARK SMARTER™ mobile payment application
  • Dome Mount Sensors
  • Single-Space Smart Parking Meters
  • Multi-Space Pay Stations and Upgrade Kits
  • Next-Generation Data Management System
