The report showcased the collaborative effort of Parquery, the town and Swiss software developer Anthrazit to transform parking experiences in Frauenfeld using cutting-edge technology.

Harnessing AI and Cameras and Data Integration for Real-Time Parking Guidance

This real-time data is then transmitted to the municipality's app, developed by Anthrazit, providing drivers with a seamless and intuitive parking guidance system at their fingertips.

Real-Time Updates and Informed Decisions: A User-Friendly App

The app not only directs drivers to the nearest available parking spots but also provides real-time updates on parking availability, and past occupancy, allowing drivers to make informed decisions about their parking choices.The integration brings together intelligent parking data and user-friendly interfaces, demonstrating the potential of technology to transform the way we park.

Data protection and privacy

Cameras in public space require careful data protection and personal rights. Parquery’s solution does rely on presence only, without needing to identify a car. Thus, Parquery implements data and privacy protectionthrough a combination of technical and organizational measures that ensure that no personal data is collected, stored, or used.

These measures include

  • High camera mounts to prevent face and license plate identification (birds-eye view).
  • Low resolution images to further deter identification.
  • Privacy masks to hide areas irrelevant to parking status.
  • Still snapshots instead of continuous video.
  • Image data is deleted promptly, storing only non-personal numerical data
