In 2011 Park Assist filed a patent for a parking guidance system. The system uses smart imaging to help customers find an open spot to park their car and to help them find their car after they already parked. This system is able to manage multiple parking spots, improve security and make parking more efficient. The system utilizes a variety of algorithms such as:

  • Topology Discovery Algorithm
  • License Plate Detection Algorithm
