Determining the occupancy of HGV parking spaces by means of video detection on Motorway 2, rest area Krähenberge, Germany

The system consists of 8 video cameras determining the available HGV parking spaces. To do so, the occupancy of the parking spaces are detected and balanced by counting the entering and leaving vehicles, the number of free parking spaces is then displayed via LED-sign at the motorway.A video camera with pan-tilt-zoom function is used to monitor the occupancy and visually correct the numbers, if necessary. The system will be integrated into an existing video system, video and TLS data will be forwarded to the traffic management center at Halle/Peißen via fiber optic cable.

The system is planned to be finished until the end of 2011. The complete project management and coordination will be executed by SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS. Thus, once again the Business Unit INTERURBAN was able to stand its ground with a competitive project concept and to make a contribution to the implementation of HGV parking management as a technology of the future.
