TERMINAL-FREE TECHNOLOGY : EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES ARE DEPLOYING MOBILE PHONE-BASED PAYMENT THAT BYPASSES STANDARD EQUIPMENT

This article describes a parking payment program in operation in Zagreb, Croatia, in which motorists pay for parking directly by using their cell phone, and without any physical contact with conventional terminals. The system, which uses "m-parking technology", can be used by any local mobile phone user on any available network, and does not require any registration or subscription. Currently, 40% of all parking transactions are handled through this system. Parking enforcement is accomplished using a real time Global Positioning System (GPS)-based communication system. The article also describes a m-garage system based on this same technology.
