Visitors to Sunway Pyramid may soon no longer need to worry about flimsy, easy-to-lose parking tickets, as the shopping mall is testing a new system that scans your number plate instead.

Details remain light at the moment, but the company has released a video showing how a car can simply enter the carpark without having to take a ticket. From the looks of it, the whole process is seamless, with the car not even having to make a complete stop before the boom gate opens.

For now, it remains to be seen if the system requires an app for payment, similar to Touch ‘n Go’s eWallet app for RFID toll payment (tech website SoyaCincau gave the kiplePark app as an example), or if a surcharge would be applied. It also remains to be seen how the system deals with custom number plate designs (which are illegal, by the way).
