The time it takes drivers to retrieve their car from a Robotic Parking System depends upon where the car is parked inside the facility; however, the minimum time needed is 1 minute, and the maximum time is 3 minutes.
But, this is not even an important point. Much more important is the peak traffic capacity of the automated parking system. This means how many cars can be processed in a given time frame, let’s say in 30 minutes. If 10 customers retrieve their car at the same time, how long does customer number 10 have to wait until he can drive his car out? These are the critical points in designing an automated parking system and will reflect with highest importance in the daily operation of the facility.
