Wireless: The Next Frontier of Revenue Control

This article gives a general account of the application of wireless technologies in parking structure revenue control. The author draws an analogy between the effect of computer technologies on various aspects of parking revenue control such as automating payment and minimizing employee corruption with the potentiality of wireless technologies. The first advantage listed to wireless systems is the reduced cost, as these networks require neither fiber optics nor copper wiring for data exchange. Another listed advantage is the possibility of a handheld link to collection management equipment and collection booths, allowing operators to swiftly determine infractions and violations. The main drawback to wireless technologies in such applications is explained to be the need for line of sight with antenna equipment.
