3D city modelling for smarter parking

3D city modelling for smarter parking
Description

Tired of endlessly looking for a parking spot? Dreaming of having a bird's-eye view to locate free spaces in a congested city? European Research Council (ERC) grantee Prof Luc Van Gool is a research leader in the area of computer vision. With his project PARQUERY, a vision-based smart parking system for monitoring on street parking occupancy, he works in the development of novel 3D live views and dynamic street maps of urban areas.

Results

The parking system PARQUERY is currently operational in the city of Locarno, in Switzerland. Twenty outdoor cameras analyse specific parking areas all over the city. Thanks to a 3G module, the cameras send images to a web cloud. The video footage is then processed by the visual car detection algorithms that, in real time, provide information on parking availability through a website and a mobile application.
