World’s biggest bay-find project using image processing
ParKam recently led the world’s largest deployment of a smart parking system that uses cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to process images at Curtin University.
The image processing camera-based system spots available parking spaces amongst nearly 6,000 bays at Curtin University’s Perth campus. The system increases in accuracy over time. The more cars it sees, the more accurate it becomes, having demonstrated above 99% accuracy.
The system guides drivers to available spaces by providing turn-by-turn directions via an app. Additionally, the system can spot how many cars are searching for parking spaces, rather than just focussing on how many bays are available, to determine whether there are enough bays for new cars entering the site.
ParKam’s Nikki Eylon and Curtin University’s Graham Arndt will present a case study at OUTLOOK 2019 on their journey from the initial pilot to one of the biggest way-finding projects to date in Australia.
