Low Costs Stereovision Based Truck Parking Occupancy Detection

In this paper the authors present a new stereovision based traffic sensor that can detect the availability of parking spaces on truck parking areas. A comparative test on a parking in Germany has shown that over a period of one year an average accuracy of 98% was achieved. This outperforms any other technology that was tested under the same conditions including in-ground pucks, radar, inductive loops and laser scanners. Due to the low energy consumption of the authors stereo sensor, solar powering the system is perfectly possible. Combining this with wireless communication makes it a cheap, flexible and non-intrusive parking occupancy detection solution. Finally, adding pedestrian recognition may provide an additional surveillance function helping to make parking more secure.
