Car Parking Access Control – SABA AVE Stations

Public parkings managed by SABA

The main stations of high speed train (AVE) in Spain have public parkings managed by SABA, one of the main parking operators worldwide.
The SIRAM solution has been installed in many of these parkings with a double function:


  • Security. The train station, as part of a critical infrastructure, requires a special watch from the security departments and from the law enforcement agencies. That is why being able to know the vehicles who enter the premises and parking areas is part of the risk prevention policy in this type of infrastructures.
  • Parking Procedure. In the case of the parking procedure, being able to have the vehicle license plate when it enters,r esults in a better service to the client.
    In the SABA parkings in Spain it is possible to perform the payment with Tag (Via-T), so in the event of an incidence with the TAG system or the conventional ticket, it is always possible to search the entry transit (date, time and lane) using the license plate number.

Details of the project

Customer: SABA Spain (AVE Stations)
Year: 2014
Number of lanes: 49
Architecture Hardware: Professional computer


The access to the parkings is managed by the automation system of the parking, but the system of license plate recognition registers each one of the vehicles who has access to the same.
Once SIRAM recognises the license plate, it saves both this datum and the image captured in the data base of the system.

Public parking procedure with license plate recognition

In the event of an incidence or ticket loss by the customer, it is possible to consult the date and time of entry of the vehicle. To that end, it will only be needed to perform a search in the database of SIRAM by license plate number, and we will obtain as result all the movements of such license plate, together with the image associated to the same.

Accesses critical infrastructures with license plate reading

As it is an environment of critical infrastructure, it is very important to be able to know the vehicle that enters the parking, both if the time of stay is short and if it remains in the premise for a longer time, as well as knowing the vehicles who stay overnight in the parking. This consultation may be done with a single click of the mouse, and requesting to the system a list of vehicles in the stock in a given moment.

Used Hardware

The OCR has been used in this project in a continuous mode (Without trigger hardware) and in other cases the loop of vehicle presence detection has been used to shoot the OCR. Regarding the capture unit, it has been used the same type of cabinet every case.
