Miami-Dade County and FDOT Select Smart Parking Solution

Park Assist Solutions 04.06.2024

Cheshire, CT – June 4, 2024 – Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) have selected TKH Security (formerly Park Assist) for implementation of our automated parking guidance system (APGS) in their Golden Glades Multimodal Transportation Facility (GGMTF). This state-of-the-art facility located in North Miami caters specifically to the needs of residents and daily commuters.

The GGMTF serves as an efficient transportation hub for a diverse range of transportation modes. This unique facility encompasses 910,000 square feet, six levels of garage parking, and surrounding surface lot parking. Our APGS, the Park Assist solution, will monitor more than 2,100 spaces.

While Miami is widely known for its booming tourism industry, which earned it the title of “North America’s Leading City Destination” in 2023 from World Travel Awards, the city is so much more than that. Miami, FL is a major commerce center, with a strong international business community, and the second largest metropolis on the East Coast. As such, Miami-Dade County places the utmost importance on taking care of residents just as much as tourists, even down to the parking facilities.

Miami-Dade County and FDOT embarked on this municipal enhancement to create a seamless, secure, and upgraded Park & Ride facility where parkers can feel safe. Installation of the Park Assist solution is just one of seven technology-driven enhancements helping to reach this goal.

“Miami-Dade County has been a client and partner for many years. We were selected for this project thanks to our relationship and the successful implementation of our parking guidance solutions in five of their existing municipal garages,” commented Thomas Alexander, Regional Account Executive, Southeast. “We’re thrilled to be expanding our camera-based smart parking solution to one of their largest and flagship transportation facilities in Miami-Dade County.”

At the core of the Golden Glades Multimodal Transportation Facility’s automated parking guidance system is the camera-based M5 smart sensor. Each M5 sensor is outfitted with two CMOS digital cameras, positioned to monitor up to six parking spaces (three on each side) from above the driving lane. With over 99% accuracy, the M5 sensor includes a customizable full-spectrum RGB LED indicator, offering thousands of color options to signal occupancy, different types of parking spaces, and more. This system optimizes traffic flow and alleviates congestion in and around parking structures, reducing the time it takes to park by up to 63%.

The Golden Glades Multimodal Transportation Facility’s automated parking guidance system (APGS) package also includes:

The installation of the Park Assist solution in the Golden Glades Multimodal Transportation Facility is currently underway and is due to be completed in Q1 2025.
