Parking is not only essential to our daily lives, but it's also a business opportunity. Smart parking systems are being used in public and private sectors—parking lots, garages, parking meters, and streets are just some of the places you'll find smart parking tools. These solutions help cities improve their parking management efficiency, making life easier for drivers and road users.
How would it be simple, if with one camera you could determine how many parking spots are taken, and how many free parking spots there are? It's quite easy to approach the problem.
What is Smart Parking?
A smart parking solution is a system that detects the cars in a parking lot and monitors their occupancy. This can help to reduce traffic and pollution, as well as save money for the business owners who have invested in this technology. A smart parking solution will identify the number of cars parked, the duration they are parked, their location, and other information that can be used to calculate how many spaces are available at any given time.
Smart parking systems can also help to reduce congestion by ensuring that drivers are not circling around looking for a space. With smart parking solutions, drivers can be guided to available spaces using apps or mobile devices, while they are on their way to their destination.
