Loading Zone Management Functional Area
'Loading Zone Management' manages loading zones. It monitors loading zone space occupancy and makes this information available to arriving vehicles and other applications. It monitors the time each vehicle spends in the loading zone and provides this information to drivers in the zone and other applications. Day and time specific management is supported for loading zones that revert to normal vehicle parking spaces in off hours and other day/time specific management strategies. In advanced implementations, reservations are accepted so that a loading zone spot can be reserved with an optional accompanying payment. Vehicles associated with the reservation are identified on arrival and directed to the reserved spot.
