Sun Singapore is leveraging AMD for its new AI-based smart parking system that can recognise vehicle licence plates more accurately. It also offers advanced features like parking spot vacancy detection, lane jam, accident detection, and parking violation enforcement.

The new solution aims to enhance existing electronic parking systems in Singapore, which rely heavily on legacy infrastructure that lacks artificial intelligence (AI) inferencing. Besides enabling more features, data generated through AI can provide advanced reporting to car park operators.

Sun Singapore’s new AI-based smart parking system uses PlanetSpark’s EdgeAI Box X7, which is powered by FPGA-based AMD Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs. Aupera Technologies also helped design and develop FPGA firmware and AI vision solutions for accurate license plate readings. With FPGAs, these edge devices have a long service life and can adapt to changing AI models, algorithms, demands and standards.

“The AMD FPGA-based edge AI solution was the right choice for us [as it provides] durability, low latency, flexibility and the ability to support complex calculations on large amounts of data. Its adaptability will also allow us to deliver new applications to improve car parking system features and services for our customers,” says Eddie Ng, senior sales manager at Sun Singapore.

“PlanetSpark is committed to driving sustainable innovation with our Green & Agile solutions, providing unmatched energy efficiency and performance at the edge. We are delighted to work with AMD on this solution, which will bring significant improvements to the Smart Parking market,” states Phuay Li Ying, managing director of PlanetSpark.

Chetan Khona, senior director of Industrial, Vision, Healthcare and Sciences Markets at AMD, adds: “Sun Singapore and PlanetSpark exemplify the power of AMD Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC’s ability to enable access to sensor fusion applications. By processing data from a variety of inputs, customers can leverage AI to enhance processes we take for granted across a variety of applications, be it smart city, manufacturing, robotics, and beyond.”
