Plenty of cars are capable of completing simple parking tasks these days. In the future, more garages and airports will use robots to park people’s cars. Take Stan from Stanley Robotics: an outdoor robotic parking system that can optimize space and create up to 50% extra spaces. It relies on a smart robot coordination software and autonomous robots to get the job done.
The system is pretty easy to use. Simply drop off your car, validate your reservation, and the rest is easy. The valet robot slides underneath your vehicle and uses its arms to lift your car by the tires to park it. The robot takes care of the parking process autonomously. The services uses flight information to make sure your car is waiting for you when you return.
