Robotic Parking Systems Offer Increased Parking Security
Every day there are numerous news stories about accidents, theft and violence in conventional parking garages and parking lots. People are hit by cars or drive off parking decks. Others are assaulted, knifed or even shot. Vehicles are vandalized and stolen.
In hundreds of airports around the world, people forget where they parked and “lose” their car. A recent report on three airports in Florida stated that “lost cars” occurred on average about 11 times per day. Now, multiply that by hundreds of airports and 365 days per year, and the number of people wandering parking lots and garages becomes obvious.
Really looking at this environment, it can be seen that rows of parked cars or columns in conventional garages offer abundant hiding places for those who intend harm.
Architects, parking designers, developers and owners can greatly increase parking security for both the individual and the cars by using a Robotic Parking System.
No Risk of Injury
There is no need to walk to and from the car through rows of vehicles or levels of parking decks. With an automated parking system, the driver pulls into a terminal located next to the street and leaves the car to be picked up by computerized machinery. The car is safe and protected on its own pallet, and never touched by machines or humans. When leaving, the driver returns to a well lit lobby where the car is quickly delivered to a ground floor terminal. Robotic Parking Systems increase safety and reduce the risk of injury.
No Damage and Dents
Regularly parking in a conventional lot or garage almost always results in dings and dents in a car. Parking spaces are often small in an attempt to accommodate more cars in the lot or garage. There’s always someone who can’t park straight. And, distracted people smash their door into the sides of vehicles, etc. In a Robotic Parking System, in fully automated mode, no one touches the car after it’s placed on the parking pallet. In fact, the automated parking facility itself contains only machinery and vehicles – no humans allowed.
No Theft and Vandalism
Robotic Parking Systems eliminate theft and vandalism. Vehicles are stored in a fully enclosed building and are 100% secure from access by others.
