Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) announced today that its Urban Solutions business would be extending its TransCore tolling technology to a smart car park system at one of the largest malls in the world, Dubai Mall. 

The project, awarded by TranCore’s technology partner, Salik Company, will involve integrating the Urban Solutions business’s barrier-free smart car park system with the TransCore-developed Salik traffic toll system to enable automatic and ticketless parking fee collection at the mall which has over 13,000 parking lots.

Through the use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology, motorists who park at Dubai Mall will have their vehicle licence plate numbers automatically captured and identified for parking fee processing. 

The experience will also be a seamless one, as the majority of motorists in Dubai already have a Salik account, meaning parking fees will automatically be deducted from their prepaid account. 

Furthermore, the barrier-free nature of the system will also aid in solving congestion issues, providing motorists a smooth entry and exit at the car park.

The centralised management and control of car park operations on the smart car park platform will also enable Salik to optimise manpower deployment, while an asset management module for preventive maintenance will prevent costly downtime.

“This project demonstrates our Urban Solutions team's synergistic capabilities by combining TransCore’s expertise in the Salik traffic toll system with the barrier-free smart car park technology developed by Urban Solutions in Singapore,” says Chew Men Leong, president of Urban Solutions at ST Engineering.

He adds: “We look forward to extending this enhanced account-based payment solution to other customers in the Middle East.” 

As at 4.00 pm, shares in ST Engineering are trading flat at $3.98.
