SenSen launches Gemineye: the world’s first AI smartphone app for parking enforcement
Artificial intelligence solutions provider SenSen Networks has today announced the launch of the world’s first AI-powered ‘Smart City’ smartphone app, Gemineye. The platform offers governments, councils and cities across Australia a range of affordable, highly accurate, cloud-based smart city solutions in the palm of their hands – including parking enforcement.
Parking enforcement is a significant cost for councils and parking authorities throughout Australia. Not only does it require a significant amount of time and resources to manage parking enforcement, it also requires expensive specialist equipment, such as vehicle mounted cameras and license plate readers.
With the technology now accessible through the Gemineye smartphone app, governments and councils can significantly reduce capital expenditure and maintenance costs of expensive smart city infrastructure and analysis solutions. Labour costs can also be reduced, as the AI technology can notify authorities when a certain situation arises, rather than having to review all the footage manually to identify incidents of interest.
Subhash Challa, CEO at SenSen Networks, believes this new solution is a game changer for governments, cities and councils, offering a cost-effective approach to smart city management and removing the barriers to entry.
“Cities worldwide look to provide their citizens with a number of civic services, including fair parking and guidance solutions, as well as ensuring they are safe and clean to live in. Technology is greatly enhancing the civic services cities can provide, but the cost of today’s specialist equipment and technology is prohibitively expensive for most cities in the world,” said Dr. Challa.
“We wanted to change that and make these solutions affordable, accessible and reliable to every city throughout Australia and across the globe. Gemineye does that. This breakthrough technology delivers the same intelligence and services at a much lower cost, helping to usher in a new era of smart transport solutions worldwide, making roads safer and cities smarter.”
An EYE for parking
The way the app works is simple. Councils or government operators select the service they require through the Gemineye smartphone app. The smartphone will then begin to analyse feeds from its sensors and cameras in real-time, utilising SenSen’s proprietary AI-powered software. SenSen’s highly accurate AI-powered software will then identify activities of people, vehicles of interest and assets of relevance to the city and upload this data to their smart city cloud infrastructure in real-time.
For efficient parking enforcement, users simply mount their smartphone on the dashboard of their vehicle, or in their hand while walking, and Gemineye’s AI-powered software will recognise vehicles parked and whether or not they infringe on parking restrictions.
Furthermore, Gemineye’s open API’s make it easy to integrate with third-party software platforms, to deliver integrated end-to-end mobile parking management solution for smart cities. This enables SenSen to connect all the disparate data collection points together to create a holistic, automated parking management solution.
SenSen is currently working with key parking solution providers to provide an integrated, digital parking management solution to customers.
