Parquery has been working with the City of Montreux in Switzerland since April 2018 providing occupancy information for the city administration as well as for the drivers.
The parking area “Chailly” has 150 parking spaces that are monitored with only 4 cameras installed on the city premises. The Parquery parking management system analyzes static images from camera feeds and delivers data about availability for the drivers in real time through the internet site www.cartoriviera.ch and also over parking panels in the city itself.
The parking operator also receives information about both parking availability and duration for each spot, and this same data can easily be cross-referenced with the payment information.
By cross-referencing, the Parquery parking management system provides parking operators with
valuable information for enforcement. For example, if a driver has parked without paying or has
exceeded his/her paid parking time, the system informs the operator in real time.
“We are very happy that another Swiss city started to use our parking solution. We think that more and more cities and communities will start to see the advantages that our system and software offers them. Cities can have a much more cost-efficient solution and get better and more accurate results than with sensors or other solutions.”, says Andrea Fossati, CEO of Parquery.
“For this project, we were looking for an innovative, smart and not expensive solution. Parquery had this solution, which was deployed for us with extraordinary professionalism,” explains Grégory Sutter from the City of Montreux.
Parquery is a technology spin-off from the Computer Vision Laboratory of ETH Zurich. Their Smart City solution harnesses their expertise in computer vision and machine learning. They have successfully deployed several smart parking projects, including the largest camera-based project worldwide in Locarno, Switzerland in 2015.
