Fix for the Missing Link in Parking Guidance - Two-Way Pedestrian Guidance in Car Parks

Well-functioning parking guidance is composed of unbroken chain of guidance services or signage from trip starting point to the final destination of each customer – and even back. However, the last links of the guidance chain are most often left loose. The customers that have been successfully guided to a free parking space are not there yet. Their final destination of interest is not the car park, but the surrounding services. In addition, large and complex car park set a real challenge for customers to find their way back to their vehicles. The novel guidance system introduced in this paper fixes these missing links in parking guidance: how to find the way to the final destination from car park and how to find the vehicle again when coming back. The system binds the car park and the surrounding city as a solid service ecosystem, with no discontinuity in guidance whatsoever.
