Parquery is a technology spin-off from the Computer Vision Laboratory of ETH Zurich. Our Smart City solution harnesses our expertise in computer vision and machine learning. We have successfully deployed several smart parking projects, including the largest camera-based project worldwide in Locarno, Switzerland in 2015.
Parquery provides outdoor parking occupancy information via cameras and computer vision software. We specifically developed our real-time, cloud-based, software solution for technology resellers, vertical solution/platform providers, and IoT connectors. Occupancy information enables parking managers and technology integrators to increase revenues and optimize enforcement. For city administrations, occupancy information increases parking efficiency and improves the overall quality of life for all citizens (End-Users).
Parquery’s smart parking solution detects available and occupied parking space locations, along with how long a vehicle has occupied each space. Our solution can also identify improper use of non-parking areas and bicycle and emergency vehicle lanes. By providing parking managers with an accurate view on past, current, and predicted future usage of their parking facilities, we help to optimize operations, revenues and enforcement. Integrated with complementary systems, our solution can also support adaptive street light management, traffic management, and retail services for easy navigation in a smart city.
Deploying a smart parking solution with Parquery is easy. Simply send us your images from your camera stream and we will send back analytics, including occupancy information, in real time. We can even process images from any existing camera stream you may have, including webcams, security cameras, IP cameras, and more.
You don’t have any cameras set up? No problem. We can help you select the right camera and with installation and configuration settings.
We take privacy very seriously, deleting all images after processing. In addition, our software is specifically tuned for processing low-resolution images, which do not capture personal information such as faces and license plates (in a recognizable form). Using low-resolution images also has the added advantage of minimizing data traffic.
Parquery helps you see on-street parking availability.
