Fields of Application
Parking Space Analyzer can be used on any parking lot with parking spaces that are clearly marked. It is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Parking spaces have to be speciﬁed on screen. Thus, Parking Space Analyzer supports parallel, perpendicular and angle parking as long as there is ﬁxed vehicle placement (clearly marked spaces).
Parking Space Analyzer measures the amount and distribution of edges inside each area. When the complexity of texture suddenly increases, a parking vehicle is detected. When the complexity of texture decreases, a free space is detected. Thus, it is crucial, that the scene background (the parking space ﬂoor) shows as little structure as possible. Events will be generated when the parking state of an area changes or when a new event subscription is requested, optionally also in speciﬁed intervals or after a conﬁgured parking duration limit is reached.
