Paper Abstract

Nowadays it is very hard to find available spots in public parking lots and even harder in public facilities such as universities and sports venues. A system that provides drivers with parking availability and parking lot occupancy will allow users find a parking space much easier and faster. This paper presents a system for automatic parking lot occupancy computation using motion tracking. Methods for complexity reduction are presented. The system showed approximately 96% accuracy in determining parking lot occupancy. We showed that by optimizing the resolution and bitrate of the input video, we can reduce the complexity by 70% and still achieved over 90% of accuracy. The results showed that high quality video is not necessary for the proposed algorithm to obtain accurate results.
