Automated parking systems are a great way to increase the efficiency of your parking lot and reduce the stress of finding a spot. Automated Parking Systems, or APS for short, can be broken down into three categories:
These systems are the perfect way to add more cars in a limited space. Automated valet systems allow for one car at a time to enter the garage and be parked by a computerized system while another car enters the parking lot.
Robotic Parking Garage
These garages work great in large cities where land is limited. Automated robotic garages are the most popular automated parking system because they allow users to park their car on a lift and be moved to an available spot, allowing cars to stack vertically within the building footprint.
Automated Vertical Systems
These systems can typically fit more vehicles per square foot than any other APS while still providing easy access from streets, sidewalks, or existing parking lots. Automated vertical parking systems move vehicles up and down a structure using a conveyor belt that allows you to get out of your vehicle at ground level without using stairs or elevators, making this option one of the best options if accessibility is essential.
As technology continues advancing, these systems are becoming much faster and more cost-effective. The more users a system serves, the more cost-effective they become.
