Automated and Robotic Parking Systems

automated parking garage

Automated and Robotic Parking Systems use the same philosophy and technology that has turned the warehouses at Amazon, FedEx, and UPS into models of efficiency. The total required volume for an automated parking garage – both in terms of geographic footprint and height/depth – is only 30-50 percent of that needed for a conventional self-park garage with the same capacity. That means two-to-three times the number of parking spaces can be accommodated in the same volume of space.

Conversely, if space is an issue – which it typically is in dense urban areas – an automated or robotic parking garage occupies only about a third of the land needed for a conventional parking facility with the same parking capacity. That is particularly important in dense, urban areas, where open land tends to be scarce.

The Traffic Group is convinced that automated and robotic parking systems are the next generation of parking in the U.S. In fact, we have invested a tremendous amount of time educating ourselves on all the products currently on the market – even traveling to and meeting with the leading engineers, designers and manufacturers of these automated and robotic parking systems. The Traffic Group’s knowledge and hands-on product experience, combined with the traffic studies we conduct necessary to design these facilities, offers you a partner with unprecedented expertise in designing the right option for your project.
