Imagine a future where core Council functions can be automated, minimising the demand on human resourcing. That future is now, thanks to our automated parking compliance solution using AI. In this edition, we shine a spotlight on this world-first solution that has revolutionised the way Councils across Australia are managing parking compliance and officer safety.
Traditionally, parking compliance has relied on manual patrols by officers, often putting them in unsafe situations and limiting the operational hours of parking enforcement. However, using artificial intelligence, our solution completely automates the process of ‘walking and chalking’, collecting the evidentiary images and processing them.
Using AI, we can leverage your existing CCTV network to provide tangible business outcomes for Council and your community. The system operates by capturing high-resolution images of license plates, extracting the necessary information, and cross-referencing it with the relevant parking restrictions. Within seconds, the system can determine whether a vehicle has illegally parked.
The cost of illegal parking has not only economic impacts on local businesses but contributes to road congestion and impacts community access to public assets such as parks and playgrounds. Greater parking turnover creates a more liveable city, with equitable access to services for all.
Eliminating the need to physically patrol parking areas greatly improves the safety of Council Officers. The reduction in safety risks, also aides in reducing the number of physical and psychological workers compensation claims. The solution also allows for operating hours to align with parking restrictions, not burdened by shift changes or periods of leave.
Lastly, the use of machine learning enables the system to continuously learn and adapt to evolving parking patterns. It can detect recurring violations, identify hotspots, and provide insights for future planning and optimisation of parking supply and demand across your LGA.
Our automated parking compliance technology doesn't just improve enforcement efficiency, it also creates a return on investment for your smart city innovation program. Providing a financial return, our solution ensures Council remains financially viable, providing important services to your community.
Our next instalment…
Stay tuned for our next edition, where we will take a deep dive into the future of asset management and utilisation through artificial intelligence. As assets continue to age, requiring ongoing and extensive maintenance, understanding how best to manage billions of dollars of assets through real-world data is only becoming more important.
