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. Index terms- Image processing; parking lot; smart cities, challenges; future directions.
