Polish company Neurosoft is showing its new NeuroPark system, part of its NeuroCar product line, which gives drivers directions to suitable parking locations by the side of a motorway and also warns them of potential problems on their route.
Neurosoft is a software house. Its software in this case is integrated with cameras and laser radars that scan vehicles for make, model, size and colour. The cameras can also read numberplates, but in some European countries such as Germany this is illegal, so it allocates an alphanumeric designation to the vehicle instead.
“We try to use the camera as a single sensor to get reliable information for vehicle detection. If it’s necessary we can support our systems with additional sensors like lasers,” said Neurosoft sales director Piotr Bardadyn.
The software can tell the driver of a vehicle if a parking space is available at its stated destination. It can also warn a driver if there is any problem on the route. If the driver is carrying a dangerous load and there is a problem ahead, it can warn him to stop and wait until the problem is cleared.
