Fully autonomous parking based on 360° camera system

Automated parking has been dominated by ultrasonic-based systems for the last decade. Such systems have fundamental limitation in range and scene understanding, and thus can only cover simple use cases with relatively low success rate. This presentation will introduce a novel approach of fully autonomous parking purely based on camera systems. The system can cope with all scenarios including today-operational design domain and additional challenging use cases such as misalignment, narrow, small/thin obstacles (pole, baby, trolley, etc) and cluttered environments (bushes, nets, fence) with and without park marking. The success rate of the proposed system is much higher than the existing systems.
