Vehicle Counter and Parking Lot Analysis

ECE 172A Project

Edward Tran

To count the number of spots that are taken or available in a parking lot

### Research Problem Statement

If the parking lot is full, it will tell the drivers so they don't have to waste time or gas looking for parking in a full lot

### Motivation

A Vision-Based Parking Lot Management System

Sheng-Fuu Lin, Yung-Yao Chen, and Sung-Chieh Liu

2006 IEEE International Conference on System, Man and Cybernetics

Car-Park Occupancy Information System

### Related Research

White balance to maintain color consistency

Define parking spaces and mask them off

Find median RGB values of parking spot

Count amount of cars and empty spaces

### Results

Good

It kind of works

Slow

Not very robust

Gets tricked by

Cars that are similar color as road

Changing lighting conditions

### Discussion of Results

Why is it slow?

Lots of for loops

Why it gets tricked?

Couldn't get the equation/algorithm from the paper to work because too vague on a couple variables

### Discussion of Results

More streamlined/optimized code

More robust thresholding/foreground extraction

Lessons Learned
