HANDY PARK

The first device to take care of parking spaces for disabled people in public areas.

In Mexico, more than 6 million people have some form of disability. Most of the streets and urban spaces are not designed to facilitate their mobility, and the few places adapted to these needs are not respected.

Mescalina didn’t want to create another awareness campaign for the respect of handicap spaces, they wanted to make a real change.

As such, they created Handy Park, the first device to take care of parking spaces for disabled people by reminding people to respect transit regulations.

  • It’s proximity sensor detects a car when it approaches the parking space.
  • Activates a camera to scan the license plates and search for a disability symbol on them.
  • If so, the car is welcomed to park, otherwise, an alert to asks the driver to move from the space.
  • If the driver stays there, a notification is sent to the local Transit Department and a traffic ticket is printed on the device.
