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 permit-based parking systems where sensors are color-coded based on the permit holders’ car assignments. The 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, indicating where respective spaces are and allowing for an effortless parking experience.
