Parking a car or a vehicle has always been an issue for most of us. Airport parking can often end up causing you a big headache if you’re running late or the car park is full. To overcome this hassle a French-based startup Stanley Robotics showed off its select driving parking robot at Lyon-Saint-Exupery. The service will be going live by the end of March 2019. The company has been working on a robot called Stan. These king-size robots can literally pick up your car at the entrance of gigantic parking lot and then park it up for you. When it comes to parking cars at airport lots, it actually requires a lot of sense and those parking lots have become one of the most lucrative businesses for airport companies. But the main problem arises when many
airports don’t have a ton of space and due to that, they keep on adding terminals which becomes more complicated.
To bridle from this massive problem Stanley Robotics can turn existing parking lots into automated parking areas.It's more efficient as you don’t need space to move around between all parking spaces. The startup promises to create 50 per cent more spaces in the same surface area.
If you’re traveling for a few months Stan robots can put your car in a corner and park few cars in front of your car. Before the customer lands, they will make sure that the car is accessible to the owner shortly. At Vinci’s Lyon airport, there are 500 spaces dedicated to Stanley Robotics. Four robots will work day in and day out to move cars around the parking lot. Vinci and Stanley Robotics are planning to expand spaces up to 6000 in total. Generally, the cost to book a parking space for a week on the normal P5 parking lot costs € 50.40. It will cost € 52.20 if the parking lot is managed by Stanley Robotics.
Self-driving cars are not there yet because roads are not that much predictable. But this startup has removed all unpredictable elements. One needs to just interact at the garage gate of parking and after that startup takes the responsibility of parking it from start to finish.
Features of Robot ?
- Autonomous: It’s autonomous platform delicately handles the vehicle by the wheels moves it and parks it. 100% electric and also ensures emission free parking.
- Equipped with Artificial Intelligence: AI allows to optimize parking lot space. Algorithm is designed in such a way that it can easily park cars tightly to create new spaces.
- Adapts to different obstacles: The different sensors allow it to scan its environment at any moment and adjust it’s movements.
How it actually works?
- Drop off your car
