Clemson University Counts Its Way To Recognition


“The problem isn’t that there’s not enough parking. The problem is that people don’t know where to park.” Dan Hofmann, Director of Parking and Transportation Services at Clemson University sums up a problem many parking professionals know all too well.Using innovative technology, including T2’s AutoCount solution, Dan flipped the script, and now, “people know if there’s available parking right around the corner.”

Combining the installation of AutoCount’s wire loop sensors in 10 student commuter lots with 400 hockey-puck sized sensors in metered spaces, Clemson now helps parkers find open spaces by pushing occupancy information to a mobile parking app.

“We continue to look for ways to take the pain and hassle out of parking,” Dan said. “Our visitors no longer have to waste time and energy circling lots to find a space, leave a meeting to feed the meter or trek across campus to get a permit. We want our campus to be inviting, and we realize that parking plays a major role in that perception.”

Early this October, the Carolinas Parking Association awarded Clemson the 2015 Award of Excellence for having the most innovative, effective, and efficient operation.
