Parquery analyses more than 400 spots by detecting vehicles on images from only two standard cameras, one of which is a webcam which was already mounted and whose images are publicly available. Real-time results on both parking availability and duration are provided to the City of Vevey. The number of available parking spots are also displayed to drivers on dynamic guidance panels and on the local authority’s website.
The vehicle detection service offered by Parquery allows us to communicate in real time and reliably the availability of an open car park of 450 places. This service has also been integrated into the parking enforcement applications of the car park and has improved the work efficiency of police assistants.
