Car parking facilities are (almost) everywhere, from on-street parking bays and open-air lots to multi-storey parking garages and fully automated car parks. They can be public or private, in building basements or at shopping malls. What they all need in order to function efficiently and generate revenue is good communications between a Kiosk or Control Room and the parking customers.
