Automatic Detection of Parking-Lot Space With Satellite Data Challenges and Points of Improvement for the Joint Project by Sakura Internet, akippa, and Ridge-i

During a talk session on August 4, it was announced that Sakura Internet, akippa, and Ridge-i are working together to develop an algorithm that uses satellite data to find space that can be rented out for parking cars, so we decided to talk with them about the challenges they face whilst developing this service, and the success they have made using Sharp's super-resolution technology.

Super-Resolution Processing of Satellite Images Using Sharp’s Deep Learning Model

Super-resolution is a technique to artificially raise the resolution of an image. Super-resolution is one of the hot topics in the field of machine learning, but what happens when you combine it with satellite imagery? We went to the Sharp Corporation Research and Development HQ, and asked the manager of the 3rd Research Team for Communication & Image Technology Laboratories, Tomohiro Ikai, and researcher, Eiichi Sasaki about the future of this technology.
