Automated car parks are all the rage in the parking industry. With the help of cutting-edge technology, drivers can now have their cars parked automatically so they don’t have to waste time driving around a crowded parking lot looking for a spot. With Bosch and APCOA getting approval for their fully driverless, automated valet parking system, driverless parking has caught everyone’s eye.

Here are a few ways that automated car parks are revolutionizing the parking industry:

  • More Efficient Utilization of Space

Automated car parks make more efficient use of space as compared to their traditional counterparts.  Since all automobiles are automatically parked in these car parks, there is no need for expansive driveways or pedestrian areas. As a result, smaller areas can accommodate more vehicles.

  • Faster Parking and Retrieval

Drivers can drop off their cars at the entrance of automated parking lots and leave the rest to the system. The automobile is then automatically parked, and when the driver is ready to leave, it is recovered and brought to the entrance.

This parking method is faster than other methods, saving drivers time and decreasing traffic congestion.

  • Lower Pollution and Emission

Automated parking lots help reduce pollution and emissions because cars don’t have to drive around looking for a spot. This will lead to lower fuel consumption and pollution.

  • Increased Security

Automated parking lots have alarms, sensors, and cameras that can detect any strange activity. This reduces the likelihood of theft, vandalism, and other crimes.

  • Greater Convenience

Drivers will find automated car parks to be highly convenient.  There will be no need for them to worry about parking, distance, or tight turns. Instead, they can just leave the car and rest assured that everything will be taken care of.

  • Cost Savings

Building an automated parking lot may be expensive initially, but there is potential for huge savings down the road.

Automated car parks can result in long-term financial savings for owners because they make better use of available space, require fewer employees, and consume less energy.

Wrapping Up

Automated car parks are revolutionizing the way we park vehicles. They provide better security and safety, quicker parking and retrieval, and better utilization of available space.

We can anticipate seeing more automated parking lots spring up all over the place as technology improves and costs decrease.
