Parquery is a cloud-based software that utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect cars in static images from any existing camera, and delivers real-time occupancy data for smart parking management.
Parquery’s custom-designed AI algorithms integrate with your existing cameras, allowing you to monitor over 300 parking spaces in a single image. No additional equipment needed!
We offer not just a smart parking solution. Our software is currently being used for over half a dozen different applications, including in marinas, airport arrival and departure gates, train depots, bus depots, petrol (gas) stations, highway rest stops, grocery stores and warehouses.
Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, Parquery is fully compliant with both the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FDAP). We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that images contain no private data and are automatically deleted after processing.
Unless specifically requested by customers, no image data is stored. We strive to install cameras as high as possible, configure them to low resolution, automatically anonymize faces, license plates, and any adjacent areas to protect individual privacy.
Get notifications when your parking lot capacity exceeds a specified percentage, a car overstays the maximum parking time, or a delivery driver violates your dropoff rules.
Parquery’s Application Programming Interface (API) can easily integrate into any third-party platform: onsite dynamic guidance displays, Smartphone Apps, Dashboards, etc.
Connected ground sensors used to be the number one option for smart parking solutions. But today there is a better, more efficient and effective alternative: camera-based smart parking solutions.
Our solution is not affected by sun glare, snow cover, intense heat, rain, occlusions, or even double-parked vehicles. The devil is in the detail - not all camera-based solutions are equal.
Tailored to the individual situation
Our solution learns the specifics and peculiarities of each parking lot and adapts itself to them. Noisy background, moving shadows, intricate layouts, varying vehicle types are not an issue.
Works with any parking type
Get real-time occupancy data from large outdoor parking lots, curb-side parking to indoor parking garages
Detects vehicles, silhouettes, and any object
We’re not just good at detecting cars. Our software can spot any object and even silhouettes
Works with any internet protocol (IP) camera
No need to buy expensive specialized sensors from a single supplier - integrate your existing infrastructure or use any IP camera with Parquery
Independent from a single supplier
With Parquery you have no risk of dependency on one single manufacturer of specialized hardware, with all its associated risks, but any camera can be used and replaced with another
Few hardware requirements
Depending on the parking lot, one single camera can monitor several hundred spaces and all it needs are power and connectivity, hence little hardware is required
Easy to deploy
Be up and running within a few days with Parquery: use existing cameras or install new ones. Installation is as simple as mounting cameras for a typical surveillance system. Other solutions require you to install expensive specialized cameras or construction works to place sensors in each parking spot
Flexible and modular
Parquery can easily accommodate changes in the parking layout, extension of the parking lot, or reduction of parking spaces.
Allows for maintenance works
Cameras neither impair road cleaning with sweepers and clearing with snow plows in winter nor interfere with construction works, renewing the road surface by asphalting, or changing the layout of the parking area.
Protection from vandalism
Since the cameras are mounted high and out of reach, they are not only protected from vandalism, but on the contrary, can even act as a deterrent.
Cameras are cheaper per parking space than other types of sensors regarding purchase, installation, and maintenance.
You can be sure that your data, as well as any customer information, is fully protected. We anonymize faces and license plates and automatically delete all images after processing

Want to increase revenue, improve your customers' experiences, gain insights or detect violations?
There are different factors to consider when choosing the right technology for your project. A key factor is the type of parking spot you want to monitor.
Monitoring just a few parking spaces, or thousands? The number of spaces to monitor has major implications for the technology you choose.
You need one ground sensor per parking space versus one camera for as many as 300 parking spaces.
The result? Over a 10-year period, ground sensors typically cost at least twice as much as initially forecasted.
Looking for sensors without batteries? Consider a camera-based solution.
Modern cameras have a lifespan of up to 25 years.
Are you looking for sensors that avoids long cable runs, complicated installation, and many points of failure, and further costs? Consider a camera-based solution.
Modern cameras have a lifespan of up to 25 years, and should they fail, they can easliy be replaced by another model.
With Parquery, you can be sure that your data as well as any customer information is fully protected.
At Parquery we have a stringent privacy shield, anonymize faces and license plates, and automatically delete all images after processing.
How Parquery complies with privacy laws
We decided to work with Parquery for several reasons:
- Excellent quality / price ratio of the technology, much cheaper than sensors
- Easy to implement (possibility to use existing cameras)
- Ideal solution for parking control, also more efficient than sensors
D. Gnerre, City of Vevey
Yes, both solutions can be combined.
Depending on the design of the parking area, one camera can cover up to 500 parking spaces outdoors, and only about 10 parking spaces indoors, on account of the ceiling height.
Some customers prefer to use sensors indoors and camera-based solutions outdoors. In this case, both solutions complement each other.
The different technologies used are transparent to the end-customer, and the facility manager views all results in a single dashboard.
