The machines are now installed, and the façade completed. Electrical, fire fighting, automation components and software are all in place. What’s next?
The next step is a comprehensive battery of synchronization, tests and adjustments to ensure that all of the elements of the Robotic Parking Systems are functioning at peak performance and that all components are communicating properly with each other. Each design specification is tested and verified including the throughput of cars and speed of retrieval, etc.
Pre-opening performance tests for this particular facility demonstrated that the garage handles 250 cars per hour with up to 32 cars in motion at any one time. This peak traffic is faster than typical conventional ramp-style garages. Additional tests showed that parking or retrieval of a vehicle can be completed within 60 to 160 seconds.
The 765 space Robotic Parking System for Ibn Battuta Gate Complex in Dubai is completed, turned over to the owner and officially opened.
