The Parking Camera Project monitors multiple parking lot spaces and displays their availabilities in a mobile application. It uses an embedded system and a camera mounted above the parking lot to routinely capture images of the parking spaces. This device classifies these images, allowing it to recognize and then transmit availabilities via Wi-Fi. This information is then readily available to users who have our application. This project consists of four major parts: ■The two applications ■The Embedded System ■The algorithms ■The backend server solution This project was evaluated using a scale model of a printed parking lot. This allowed us to have a consistent and controlled platform for processing.
