At the entry point you choose your type of car, a floor you want to park at and then confirm the information for the ticket to be printed. The ticket prints with a QR code that can be used at exit. 

At exit, one has to place the QR receipt on the scanner glass for the record and then choose to exit. The exit command also is connected to the lift for it to take you on the exit floor directly.
