Recent Developments in Computer Vision for Finding Available Parking Lots
Due to increasing vehicle population in cities, finding vacant parking lots is getting difficult. Cars wondering
around in the hope of finding parking consume considerable amount of fuel and pollute the environment. Recently, there
have been many proposals to help the drivers to locate the vacant parking lots. This paper delivers a brief summary of the
current image processing techniques proposed for locating available parking lots. It provides a short list of the attained
accuracy of various approaches by presenting the used image features and classification algorithms. Moreover, the
challenges and possible future research topics are summarized.
