  • Parking Solution

    The application is a cloud-based solution detecting cars from static images. With its smart computer vision algorithm, figures out the real-time parking occupancy in different parking spots and lets a modern Java stack handle the application and data concerns. The occupancy information is stored in a NoSQL database (MongoDB) from where data is analytically processed and dumped into a data warehouse using Hadoop and Hive.

    The solution provides a responsive web application built on Spring Boot and AngularJS, which uses Google Maps API to help the users find an empty parking spot. The scope of this application is not limited to finding a parking spot, though. With the help of the smart algorithm, parking inspectors can figure out overtime occupancy in parking spots and take the necessary measures. It furthermore analyzes historical data and generates detailed, configurable parking occupancy reports that help the city authority to better plan future administrative decisions.
