iRobot: Parks your Car
iRobot: For Your Car
Robot parking systems have been used in other countries and now the automated system is being put to work in a Chinatown parking garage in New York City. This new system will allow the garage to expand its amount of parking spaces from 24 to 67 cars because the system allows the basement styled garage to remove a ramp and maneuver a space normally required. Now you ask how does this system work? Drive up to the garage opening and pull up onto the automated pallet-which essentially does the moving for you. I imagine this pallet computer senses when you have stopped on the grid and then lowers itself into the appropriate parking space. No valet attendants are needed for the system.
