The parking lot can be divided into two modes: surface parking and underground garage. With the continuous development of the city, the utilization of ground space is getting higher and higher, and there are few surface parking lots in the prosperous areas of the city. Underground parking has become a must-have for shopping malls, apartments, hotels and other buildings. The underground garage is a relatively closed space, in this space, the driver must be able to enter the parking lot conveniently, quickly and accurately to find the right parking space, which requires a complete underground garage guidance system to achieve.
In an underground garage environment, there are three outstanding features:
1. The environment is relatively closed, and it is very easy for drivers to get disoriented after entering.
2. The underground environment is not fully lit, and the driver does not achieve it well.
3. Compared with walkers, drivers move faster.
In view of the above three characteristics of the underground garage, in the design and planning of the underground garage, it is necessary to pay attention to the following aspects:
1. Easy to identify and browse
From the guidance theory, we can know that the speed of human movement has a greater impact on visual recognition ability and range. The most important thing about any good wayfinding system is that it needs to get information about where they want to go. It needs to have clear navigation paths with clear routes that make it easy for the audience to move from their current location to their destination. This is especially true for the function of underground garage signage. Because when the driver drives into the underground garage, the field of view becomes narrow, and the vehicle travels slightly faster than the person walking, in this case, clear identification, orientation, positioning and necessary regulatory information should also be provided. Turning points, which should be clearly indicated, are marked in advance. Once the audience has reached a critical inflection point, options should emerge that provide directionality and point to the audience to guide the driver to where they need to go.
2. The principle of conciseness and accuracy
The sign is a visual product, so people observe the sign for a very short time, people drive the vehicle for walking faster, the observation time of the sign is shorter, so the underground garage sign should also follow the principle of concise and accurate. A good underground garage sign must be concise and clear and tell the driver the most wanted information. The necessary information should be short so that the driver can easily find their destination, while in a hurry or at a traffic node, clear, simple, but limited navigation options should be provided in order to guide the driver without confusing them with too much complicated information.
3. Systematic and coherent design
This is especially important for underground garages, drivers first arrive in a certain garage, if they lose judgment of the general direction, he will be unfamiliar with each traffic node in the underground garage, if this node has a guide gap, almost make the driver lose the line of defense and make the wrong direction judgment. This is a fatal flaw for the guidance system.
4. Fully consider the light in the underground garage
Light is the basic elements of people observing signage, if the underground garage has enough sufficient light, our signage can use low-cost film signage, if the underground garage light is not sufficient, you need to use light box signage, which is a more reasonable choice, on the basis of ensuring that people can fully identify the garage sign, reduce the production cost.
