Every day there are multiple 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 mugged, raped, knifed or shot. Vehicles are vandalised and stolen. If you really look at this environment, you see that rows of parked cars or columns in conventional garages offer numerous hiding places for those who intend harm.
There are many ways that parking designers and garage owners work to increase security for individuals. These range from layout to lighting to patrols. One of the ways to greatly enhance security for both the individual and their car is by using a Robotic Parking System design.
REDUCED RISK OF INJURY
There is no need for individuals to walk to and from their car through rows of cars or levels of parking decks. With an automated parking structure, the individual drives into an entry station and leaves their car to be picked up by computerized machinery. When they leave, they return to a well-lighted lobby where their car is quickly delivered to a ground floor exit station. This increases safety and reduces risk of injury.
REDUCED DAMAGE AND DENTS
Parking in a conventional lot or garage almost always results in dings and dents in a car. Space is often tight to squeeze in more parking spaces. 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, no one touches the car after it’s placed on the parking pallet. In fact, the robotic parking garage itself contains only machinery and vehicles – no humans allowed. This reduces damage and dents to the vehicle.
REDUCED THEFT AND VANDALISM
Robotic Parking Systems’ reduce theft and vandalism. Vehicles are stored in a fully enclosed structure and are 100% secure from access by others.
