Axis Communications’ 8th generation ARTPEC system-on-chip (SoC) powers deep-learning analytics on the edge. Axis partner Parquery developed a tailored application for cameras with those chips on the open Axis platform. Hence, Axis cameras can now be deployed with Parquery onboard, which harnesses the cameras’ processing power to analyze footage within themselves.

Parquery has been the leading provider of camera-based smart parking solutions, whether indoors or outdoors, marked or unmarked parking, summer or winter. Renowned for their accurate results, bespoke and specialist solutions, and agile development. 

On-camera processing is now adding to their range of flexible deployment options, which include Parquery’s cloud servers, partners’ or clients’ servers (cloud or local), or at the edge with small computers on-site.

The embedded solution’s benefits to the end user are apparent: Firstly, data is processed close to where it is being generated, enabling processing at great speeds and volumes. Less bandwidth and storage requirements also mean fewer servers are needed. Thus, cutting the cost and improving scalability compared to on-premise servers.

Secondly, the ease of use of a solution embedded in the camera is plain to see, as no additional computation devices are needed. Furthermore, where privacy concerns are paramount, on-camera processing can give customers extra peace of mind and custody of their data, in addition to Parquery’s stringent and rigorous privacy and data protection policy
