What do I have to consider with regards to cameras?

 

Factors to take into account include selecting the cameras, their ideal number and installation location, a reliable power source, a network connection, camera configuration, and the actual installation on site.

What kind of camera do I need?

 

Any camera will do. Parquery can use images from any Internet Protocol (IP) camera, including standard cameras, CCTV cameras, webcams and more. We have worked with all major brands including Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hikvision, Samsung, Wenhua and many others.

Parquery detects objects in both images and video streams from any camera. All we need is the footage they produce. For video cameras, we sample and analyse the video stream at the interval the client requires, for example, every 10 seconds, once a minute, every 5 minutes, etc.

Number and location

 

If you have no cameras installed yet, Parquery will help you identify the optimal number and most effective locations to cover your parking area. All we require from you is a map of your parking areas and the available installation height.

Starting from there, we compute a simulation of the camera views to determine how many cameras we need and where to install them. We base our simulation on a selection of common off-the-shelf cameras. The goal is to cover the entire parking area with the minimum number of cameras. This translates directly into saving you money: we monitor as many parking spots as possible with as few cameras as possible.

What is the ideal camera view?

 

An ideal camera view to detect vehicles is to see them from the front or from the back.
Aligning the camera view with the parking direction poses less risk of occlusion.
Vehicles can hide each other when they are seen in a profile section.
Vehicles presented in profile might hide others.

Reliable power source

 

Ensure a reliable power source, for example, connect to the public electricity supply by cable or install solar panels.

Ideally, the cameras will be mounted on buildings, tall posts or atop street lamps. Once connected to a power source and running, the cameras can send images in real-time or at any time interval chosen by the customer.

For solar-powered cameras, the frequency for sending images depends on battery capacity.

Parquery needs only standard cameras, which can be powered by cable or solar panels

Internet or a local network connection

 

The camera images are either processed remotely on Parquery’s cloud servers or on-site on a dedicated server. In either case, the cameras need a network connection:

  • An internet connection to use Parquery's cloud servers: ethernet cable, Wifi, 3G/4G SIM cards, etc.
  • A local network to process the data on-site. Parquery's algorithms will run on a local server, and images are transferred to this server via a local network.

Camera configuration

 

Regardless of whether you run our software locally or on Parquery’s cloud servers, you have two options to enable data transmission:

  • Option 1 (Push): Parquery provides an FTP server to let the cameras upload images at the desired interval;
  • Option 2 (Pull): Parquery connects to the camera’s IP address to gather images at the desired interval.

In either case our Operations Team will help you configure your cameras for the best possible results.

On-site camera installation

 

The customer can decide whether to install the cameras themselves, commission an installation company, or work with one of Parquery's professional installer partners.

  • Whichever option you choose, Parquery will accompany your installer on the day of camera installation to ensure a smooth process.
  • A Parquery professional will work with your installer every step of the way directly on-site, over the phone or via video conference. Thus, we can make sure the cameras deliver the best possible views for parking area analysis.

Parquery's solution is easy to implement, and it is possible to use existing cameras.

It is an ideal solution for parking control and is also more efficient than sensors.
