Parquery detects any vehicle

Cars, motorbikes, trucks, trains, boats, bikes, tractors, construction machinery... You name it, we detect it.

 

Parquery’s smart parking solution is powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms that analyze camera images to detect vehicles and determine whether a parking spot is occupied. Being a learning system, it can adapt to any parking situation and object.

 

Take a look behind the scenes of Parquery’s AI

Vehicles as diverse as their drivers and habits

 

Commercial vehicles of professional workers and tradespeople pose an interesting challenge to any detection algorithm. They come in widely varying sizes, shapes, and appearances: from typical passenger cars to delivery vans, pickups, flatbed trucks, box, and curtain-side trucks, both with and without an assortment of trailers, with and without additional superstructures such as roof racks.

Parquery has seen it all, small, medium, and big: motorbikes, 3-wheelers, tiny motorcycle-cars, oldtimers, sports cars, pickups, vehicles with roof-tents and bike racks, delivery vans with and without roof racks, delivery vans of any size, shape, and color, trailers with and without cargo, earth-moving machines (at the very edge of the camera image), large trucks, road tankers, buses and coaches, camper vans, ...

Parquery even detects shapeshifters

Furthermore, a vehicle's appearance can drastically change depending on its cargo: open freight platforms of trucks, pickups, or trailers may be empty or covered with materials and equipment. A gardener's truck, for example, might look like a treetop when loaded with shrubs. A trailer laden with shopping carts is still a vehicle and should be recognized as such, contrary to shopping carts in an empty bay. The cargo - and with it, the vehicle’s look - might even change over time while the vehicle is parked.

Cargo can range from palettes, boxes, tools, appliances, wooden boards, bushes, trees, over sand and gravel, to construction and earth-moving machinery such as excavators. Ladders, wooden boards and beams, equipment, and bits and bobs are also frequently strapped onto roof racks. All of these profoundly change the characteristics and appearances of the vehicles and challenge any detection algorithm.

Why does it work so well?

Dependable in cluttered situations

Parquery’s algorithms can be trained on any vehicle - as diverse as motorcycles, trains, earth-moving machinery, or boats - while being robust to visual clutter or other objects not relevant for detection. Neither open doors and trunk lids of vehicles being loaded or unloaded, nor shopping carts, pedestrians, or bicycles in the foreground interfere with recognition. Parquery’s AI can reliably distinguish oil stains on the asphalt, patched-up road surfaces, or litter from a parked vehicle.

Parquery’s system is robust to occlusions and other objects such as trolleys, car doors, pedestrians and cyclists passing through, oil stains, wet patches, puddles, or tyre marks.

Beyond cars and trucks

 

Parquery’s intelligent algorithms learn by example and experience and, thus, can be trained to detect and recognize any object. Beyond solving smart parking problems, Parquery also works on people counting (footfall data), traffic monitoring, and warehousing solutions.
