Parking Availability Detection (PAD)
Operating Systems:Windows and Unix
Parking Availability Detection is a software system which analyzes live video in order to determine if parking spots in a parking lot are available or not. Developed in C++ and OpenCV, this customizable system determines the statuses of each spot and sends this data to a database. A website, accessible to anyone, aggregates and presents this data with photos, tables, and graphs. This website provides a means to examine historical data of each parking space and parking lot. With the use of this system, drivers can easily know when and where to park.
