Park Assist’s proprietary M4 camera-based smart sensor PGS does much more than traditional parking systems that simply keep track of empty spaces. The guidance system can be used to help with school campus’ permit-based parking systems such as the one at the University of Texas at Dallas, where sensors are color-coded based on the permit holders’ car assignments. A Park Assist camera-based smart-sensor system puts processing intelligence right at the parking-space level. Each individual sensor has the ability to stream video to a video management system, while also sending rich data for the company’s integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR) and occupancy tracking. This system provides the desired level of parking assistance to students and faculty, indicating where their respective spaces are and allowing for an effortless parking experience.
