A fast growth of vehicles in big cities has an impact of arising road loads and difficulty of finding empty parking spaces. One solution to cope with the problem is to develop a parking management system which can provide useful information of available parking spaces to the potential users. This paper discusses about a new multicamera arrangement and the function to evaluate the empty/occupied states of the parking slots, as an alternative solution to the existing single camera system, The system adopted Mask R-CNN for its classifier, because of its capability to provide the polygon outputs for its detected objects, compared with the existing bounding box outputs provided by other classifiers. The proposed function has optimized the available information from all cameras, by considering the relative position of each camera to the parking spaces, and also capable of overcoming occlusion problem occurs in some cameras, The experiment shows that the capability of overcoming the occlusion problem has been validated, and its performance to evaluate the empty/occupied states of the parking slots was better than the single camera system to a certain threshold.
