Payment Device --> Parking Management System:


payment (Information Flow): Payment of some kind (e.g., toll, parking, fare) by traveler which, in most cases, can be related to a credit account.

Payment Device (Source Physical Object): The 'Payment Device' enables the electronic transfer of funds from the user of a service (I.e. a traveler) to the provider of the service. Potential implementations include smart cards that support payment for products and services, including transportation services and general purpose devices like smart phones that support a broad array of services, including electronic payment. In addition to user account information, the payment device may also hold and update associated user information such as personal profiles, preferences, and trip histories.

Parking Management System (Destination Physical Object): The Parking Management System provides electronic monitoring and management of parking facilities. It supports an I2V link to the Vehicle that allows electronic collection of parking fees and monitors and controls parking meters that support conventional parking fee collection. It also includes the instrumentation, signs, and other infrastructure that monitors parking lot usage and provides local information about parking availability and other general parking information. This portion of the functionality must be located in the parking facility where it can monitor, classify, and share information with customers and their vehicles. It also interfaces with the financial infrastructure and broadly disseminates parking information to other operational centers in the region. Note that the latter functionality may be located in a back office, remote from the parking facility.
