Revolutionary 'Park Assist' program

ROBINA Town Centre continues to establish its position as one of Queensland's leading and most progressive retail and leisure destinations, with the further introduction of its revolutionary new 'Park Assist' parking guidance technology - a first for any shopping centre in the state.

Opened on Thursday, April 2 as part of the second and largest stage of Robina Town Centre's new $300 million expansion, the new BIG W and second Woolworths car parks feature the new high-tech 'Park Assist' technology - a state-of-the-art electronic parking system which guides drivers to available car spaces.

Centre Manager Ian Ferguson said the revolutionary new parking technology, which was first introduced to the Centre's David Jones car park in late 2008, is set to become a major drawcard for shoppers looking to access the shopping centre as quickly and easily as possible.

“Robina Town Centre is proud to introduce 'Park Assist' technology to its new multi-level undercover car parks, creating an additional 1100 parking bays for customers, who will be able to find a park in half the time,” Mr Ferguson said.

Using a network of coloured messaging signals and individual LED lights, Park Assist directs drivers from the entrance of the car park, indicating five different colours to signify availability: green - unoccupied space; red - occupied space; blue - disabled parking space; purple - parents with children; and yellow - reserved.

Each parking space has a sensor that detects vehicles and transmits data to central monitors indicating open parking spots on each row and the location of each available space.
