A Russian university has developed a new application to find spare space using surveillance cameras

For many car owners, after entering the parking lot, if the venue is too large, finding a parking space is also a headache. If, after entering, the owner can see the parking space in the car park and parking status, you can avoid the trouble of looking for parking spaces back and forth. To this end, a Russian university has also introduced corresponding solutions. Recently,media reported that Chelyabinsk, Russia, will use computer vision and image recognition technology to solve the shortage of parking spaces.

A Russian university has developed a new application to find spare space using surveillance cameras

As part of the Smart City project, scientists at South Ural State University in Russia used installed CCTV cameras and specially developed programs to collect data, identify spare parking spaces and provide drivers with information about spare parking spaces in the nearest parking lot.

Researchers have come up with a new solution to the shortage of parking spaces, designing a special software application that can quickly inform drivers of convenient parking locations using existing CCTV cameras, greatly improving the urban driving environment and making parking more efficient.

In addition to obstructing road traffic, you may also face traffic penalties if you park at will. The solution allows drivers to quickly find free parking.

At the same time, this technology solution does not require additional parking sensor costs, as only existing CCTV cameras are required. At the same time, most of the parking lots are fitted with surveillance cameras covering the entire parking area.

As a result, the technology only needs to pick up the camera’s video signal, which then allows the parking search system to serve the driver’s friends.
