Parquery’s smart parking solution provides real-time results for parking facility managers, as well as operational partners interested in taking the few simple, straightforward steps necessary to integrate Parquery’s results into their existing platforms.
This page provides details on the requirements to enable Parquery's algorithms to function.
Parquery detects objects in images taken from any camera, even those you have already installed. All we need are the images they produce. No video stream required. Parquery can detect vehicles in video camera images at any interval the client requires, for example every 10 seconds, every thirty seconds, once a minute, every five minutes, etc.
If you haven’t installed any video cameras yet, Parquery will help you identify the best, most effective locations for installation. All we need is a map of your parking areas and the height of your installation points. Then we’ll run a simulation based on standard cameras available on the market.
Our goal is simple: to save you money by covering as many parking spots as possible using as few video cameras as possible.
If you haven’t installed any cameras yet, it’s important to select a reliable power source.
Ideally cameras should be placed on buildings, tall posts or atop street lamps. Once they’re hooked up and running, these cameras can send images in real time or at any interval frequency the customer desires.
You can also power your cameras with batteries connected to solar panels. In this case, the interval frequency for sending images depends on battery capacity.
Regardless of whether you run our software locally or on Parquery’s cloud servers, you have two distinct options:
No matter which option you choose, our Operations Team will help you configure your cameras for the best possible results.
If no cameras are installed on site, camera installation can be carried out by the customer, by an installation company commissioned by the customer, or by professional installers (Parquery partners).
As soon as Parquery receives your camera images, we can deliver results. These initial results achieve 95% accuracy, and will improve to +99% accuracy within the first month.
During this period our Operations Team will train our software to adapt to your specific environment, identifying and compensating for potential edge cases including extreme shadowing, partial tree obstruction, adverse weather conditions, etc.
Prior to delivering your initial results, we’ll organize a video conference call together in order to make sure we send your data in a format that responds to your specific needs.
One month after you have received your results, we organize a second meeting to gather feedback on your experience and, if necessary, modify the dashboard to better suit your purposes.
Depending on your needs and suggestions, we’ll also use this meeting to define any next steps.
After comparing with other providers, one of the reason we chose to work with Parquery was the sheer facility of implementation, deployment time, configuration, and calibration.
We are very satisfied with Parquery for their support and their solution's reliability.
