Sernis developed a device to monitoring and manage parking lots in outdoor environments through real time image processing. The SR-OPS Outdoor Parking System has the same high performance as sensors network embedded in pavement, a single camera can monitoring simultaneously up to 50 parking lots which ensures a lower price per place.
The SR-OPS operates 24/7 with different light conditions and can be integrated in any outdoor car parking for optimizing the park management. The main innovation is the monitoring of parking lots through the recognition of a painted mark on the floor and also the possibility to create cameras networks to extend the number of places monitored.
The device is configurable according to the features of the car parking and is useful for several applications, such as, detection of available parking spaces, parking guidance, vehicle detection and parking lots management systems.
