Truck parking along highways has become a growing problem worldwide due to increasing cargo and delivery demand. Insufficient parking spaces lead to issues with road and driver safety, fatigue, search traffic, pollution, unauthorized parking, and economic losses for the industry and consumers.
The main issue with truck parking is the lack of real-time information on available parking spots.
Drivers may be forced to search for a resting place in a hurry, leading to unsafe or unauthorized parking, or driving while fatigued, risking their own and others' safety on the road.
Conventional solutions for occupancy detection, such as induction loops and ground sensors, are considered unsatisfactory by road authorities due to their high and replacement installation costs, low accuracy, and susceptibility to interference, snow, debris, and road cleaning.
Parquery's smart parking solution uses AI-powered cameras to monitor parking spots in real-time, detecting vehicle presence and dwell time, and providing real-time information to drivers about available parking spots. This enables drivers to plan rest breaks more efficiently, reducing the risk of driving while fatigued, improving road safety, and reducing economic and environmental impact.
Efficiently managing and allocating available parking requires large-scale parking guidance
systems that provide real-time availability and reliable forecasting. Parquery's solution can be
easily and quickly deployed, even using existing cameras, making it ideal for truckers' rest areas
that are often already equipped with cameras for security purposes.
While technical challenges exist for camera-based truck parking due to the variety and range of
trucks in terms of size and appearance, Parquery's deep learning AI solution can adapt to
different vehicle appearances with enough calibration or training data. This innovative solution
offers a cost-effective and timely way to manage and optimize truck parking, creating safer and
more efficient roadways for everyone.
