What costs to expect.

 

Depending on existing infrastructure that can be re-used, expect the following costs for installing a new camera-based smart parking system.

Where cameras are already installed and cover the parking well, no additional infrastructure is needed: we’ll use the same cameras you use for surveillance (CCTV), smart lighting, timelapse videos, or even publicy available webcams.

New cameras require a reliable power supply. Autonomous solar-powered cameras are a viable alternative depending on the location and climate. 

Cameras need a connection to a local network or the internet to transmit the images for analysis to either an on-site server or to Parquery’s cloud servers.

Parquery's software can either run as cloud service (SaaS), or locally on a server on premise.

Our software analyzes the camera images with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and provides real-time results via Application Programming Interface (API), an interactive dashboard, and real-time alerts.

Unlike sensor-based approaches, Parquery’s solution does not require major civil works or interventions.

How do the costs compare with ground sensor systems?

 

  • Hardware and installation costs: A single camera can monitor up to 300 parking spaces. To cover the same number of spaces with a ground sensor system, you need 300 ground sensors that require major civil works for installation.
     
  • Long-term expenses: Ground sensors cause high long-term costs - due to battery deterioration, expect a 5- to 7-year lifespan on average. That means that within a decade you will have spent twice your initial investment. In contrast, modern cameras have a lifespan of up to 25 years.

Hundreds of parking spots can be detected with only one standard camera.
Hundreds of parking spots can be detected with only one standard camera, even without parking lines.
One magnetic ground sensor is needed for each parking spot.
In contrast, one magnetic ground sensor is needed for each parking spot. The sensor has to be installed in the precise spot where vehicles are expected to park.

 

Depending on your individual requirements, combining ground sensors and cameras can also be a viable option, e.g., cameras for large lots and sensors for isolated spots. Their results can be merged and displayed on the same platform.
