This paper proposes a novel light stripe projection based free parking space recognition method in order to overcome the common drawbacks of existing vision based target parking position designation methods in dark indoor parking site. 3D information of parking site is recognized by light stripe projection method. By analyzing the 3D information, system can recognize discontinuous points, pivot, and opposite-site reference point. Experiments show that the proposed method can successfully designate target position in spite of dark illumination condition and the black reflective surface of vehicle. Furthermore, because the proposed method can be implemented just by adding a low-cost light plane projector, it is economically practical solution.
