Many of us have been in the situation where we can’t remember where we parked. Whether we were distracted by screaming kids, an intense phone conversation or planning our shopping strategy, the large car parks all seem to look alike and now we are on the hunt for our car. Well, according to Emaar, this is no longer an issue at Dubai Mall.
Emaar is currently testing a system to help forgetful visitors find their vehicles within the Dubai Mall’s enormous parking complex.
Simply type your licence plate number into a touchscreen computer and it will identify your car using a network of scanners distributed throughout the car park. The screen then generates a picture of the vehicle and pinpoints its exact location, as well as a map of how to get there. Easy-peasy.
The system’s currently on trial in the mall and Emaar has not yet decided whether it will stay there long-term, a spokesman for the property giant said.
