Robotic Parking Systems offers a more eco-friendly parking solution by:
(a) Using 50% less space to park the same number of cars as a conventional garage. Land used affects sustainability issues such as development density and maximizing open space. Use less space for parking allows architects and developers to incorporate more green space and open areas. Plus, less space used for parking creates space for higher revenue usage.
(b) Reducing traffic congestion and accompanying pollution. Multiple studies have reported that 30% to 50% of traffic congestion in city centers is generated by drivers searching for a parking space. An efficient automated parking system allows placement of parking in convenient areas not workable for larger conventional parking.
(c) Reducing pollution inside the garage by using electro-mechanical automated parking machinery to move cars into parking spaces. No cars run inside the garage, and there is no driving up and down ramps and through aisles in search of a space. This significantly reduces the emissions of harmful gases, reduces the carbon footprint, increases carbon credits and ensures an environmentally clean parking facility.
Tire and brake dust are more toxic than all the exhaust related emissions. In a 750 space Robotic Parking System 37 tons of tire dust and 3.7 tons of brake dust pollutants are eliminated by using electro-mechanical machinery to move cars inside the garage.
(d) A review of LEED for New Construction & Major Renovations shows that a project which includes a Robotic Parking System could receive at least 10 points and as many as 17 points toward certification.
