As the number of cars on the road continues to increase, there is a corresponding demand for parking spaces. According to traffic research, there should be 1.2 parking spaces per car to maintain a balance and avoid a shortage of parking spaces. This is a significant problem for highly developed cities, especially during peak traffic hours, as well as for places like department stores, hypermarkets, exhibition venues, industrial parks, downtowns, stations, and airports. The availability of parking spaces is an essential indicator of an intelligent city, and the government is responsible for solving people’s traffic problems. Adding new parking spaces and increasing the turnover rate are necessary conditions for expanding parking spaces. However, limited land constraints make it challenging to add new parking spaces. Therefore, the solution to parking problems lies in effectively increasing the turnover rate of parking spaces. Intelligent parking was proposed in 2014 to address this issue. With the development of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT, innovative parking systems have become a popular choice for major cities to alleviate the shortage of parking spaces by integrating metropolitan parking resources.

  • Easy to be interference.
  • No image judgment.
  • Less information collected.
  • High labor cost.

License plate recognition pile

  • Easily destroyed by Intentionally.
  • The construction is complex.
  • High investment and maintenance costs.

On-Street Parking Management With High-Position Cameras

Managing parking spaces on the on-street is a crucial first step in developing smart cities. I-View provides cost-effective solutions for managing open parking on the roadside in modern metropolitan areas. It is achieved through the comprehensive application of AI algorithms, deep learning, cloud computing storage, IoT, and other advanced technologies. I-View’s ParkGuide® On-Street intelligent parking management system using the high-position camera has several advantages over existing on-street parking management system solutions. It not only avoids the disadvantages of the current solutions but also offers additional benefits.

Complete collection of information

High integration

Provide diverse functions

Low investment and maintenance costs

Not easily destroyed by man

Low difficulty in construction

Utilizing cloud computing and wireless network transmission in on-street parking management has significantly improved performance. Artificial intelligence has replaced manual work, reducing labor costs and eliminating the disadvantages of manual charging. AI has led to increased parking turnover and revenue while improving management performance compared to manual methods. Moreover, it has resulted in more effective use of parking spot resources and smoother traffic flow, meeting the requirements of intelligent city traffic.

Advantages of ParkGuide® On-Street Parking Management System

One-stop Solution

The ParkGuide® on-street parking management system provides a one-stop solution, from license plate recognition, parking fee calculation, evidence collection, payment (Autopay Kiosk or online payment), payment notice, etc. Our reliable and efficient system allows you to focus on management.

ParkBack® Parking Management Failover Server

The failover (failure recovery) function is a backup mode mainly used when the primary system is interrupted due to failure or regular maintenance. The auxiliary backup system uses to make up for the loss of the primary parking management system to provide uninterrupted Parking service.

ParkDB® Parking Management Database Server

Managing multiple parking lots is a pain point for enterprises or chain parking lots. The inability to share independent operation data of parking lots makes information integration difficult and workforce waste. The ParkGuid® parking management system provides the option of a ParkDB® database server, which can synchronously store the name-listed and vehicle entry and exit data of each parking lot. Achieve the advantages of centralized management, localized processing, and data backup. Besides that, there are many notable features.

ParkGuide® On-Street Parking System Function Description

  • Empty parking space display

ParkGuide® is an on-street parking management system that uses high-position cameras and video analysis algorithms to detect whether parking spaces are occupied or not. Once the status of each parking space is determined, it is uploaded to the cloud management platform. This comprehensive data is then automatically displayed on LED displays via 4G wireless transmission. The information about the number of empty parking spaces in each area helps drivers find the closest available parking spot, thereby reducing traffic congestion, air pollution, and other related issues.

  • Parking fee management

The ParkCam® high-position camera uses a video analysis algorithm to detect the environment surrounding the parking spots. When a car parks or leaves, the camera automatically takes pictures, archives them, and recognizes the license plate number. This recognition triggers the generation of a parking bill that is sent to the car owner through the App. The parking fee can be paid via the App or the nearest automatic payment machine, thus completing a full parking management cycle.

  • Improper parking management

In addition to detecting whether the parking space is occupied or not, the video algorithm of the ParkCam® high-position camera reports improper parking behaviors such as cross-parking spaces and wrong-direction parking. For the no license plates vehicles, long-time occupiers, illegal (such as stolen vehicles, drug vehicles), and other cars, the photographs or video data taken are provided to the law enforcement department for corresponding processing. I-View’s parking management system is not only for parking but also accounts for public security monitoring.

How does the ParkGuide® on-street parking management system run?

1. As the vehicle approaches a parking space, a high-position camera takes photos and sends them to the parking management server via Wi-Fi (or 4G).

2. When the vehicle parks in the parking space, the camera takes another photo and sends information to the server that the area is occupied.

3. When the vehicle is about to leave the space, the camera takes another set of photos and sends them to the server.

4. After the vehicle has fully vacated the space, the camera takes one last photo and sends it to the server with information that the area is empty.

5. The parking management server recognizes the license plate of the four photos and calculates the parking fee. These four photos were combined into a file as supporting evidence for the parking charges.

6. The parking management server uses the 4G wireless network to perform statistics on empty parking spaces based on the area drawn. The results are displayed on the LED display of the street, helping drivers locate the nearest parking space to their destination quickly.

7. The driver can scan the QR Code via mobile phone to pay or go to the nearest automatic payment machine to pay the parking fee by cash or electronic payment.

8. Integrating on-street parking management with the criminal vehicle database can significantly assist law enforcement in locating illegal vehicles. Pop-up warning messages can also be automatically activated for cars parked abnormally, such as long-term parking without leaving, wrong-direction parking, and occupying multiple spaces.
