Robotic Parking Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that it has completed the rigorous audit process and is now ISO 9001:2015 Certified for the Design and Installation of Robotic Parking Systems.
US Congressman David Jolly recently toured Robotic Parking Systems‘ manufacturing facility in Clearwater, FL where he received a demonstration of the company’s innovative automated parking technology.
Congressman Jolly represents Florida’s 13th Congressional District which covers Pinellas County where the company is located. As a member of the Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, he understands transportation issues and how more efficient and space-saving parking can assist urban development projects.
Whether planner, developer, owner, operator or driver — a Robotic Parking System offers decisive advantages for everyone:
For planners, architects, developers and owners:
The Façade of a Robotic Parking System Fits Harmoniously within the Environment
Architects and developers have complete freedom in designing the external appearance of a robotic parking facility – imagination is the only limit.
Any type of façade (brick, living wall, concrete, aluminum or glass) can hang onto the clean outside structural support system of a Robotic Parking garage. All of the machinery, lifts and automation components are installed inside the supporting structure and never interfere with the façade.
This ensures that the garage can fit harmoniously into any project or neighborhood. Entry / exit terminals can also be integrated into the façade environment, while observing both visual as well as functional criteria.
The Robotic Parking System can be constructed in every form — above ground, underground, on roofs or inside a building complex.
Here are a few examples of project designs that incorporate robotic parking.
Robotic Parking Systems designed the standard entry / exit terminals to be suitable and comfortable for the handicapped. The minimum width of each terminal is 4755 mm / 15.6 ft. which is compatible with the requirements of the ADA – American Disability Act.
One “green” advantage of a Robotic Parking System is the conservation of space. Since drivers do not have to walk within the structure, the clearance only needs to accommodate vehicles. The densely stacked automated solution takes a parking to a new level as it allows the Robotic Parking System to use 50% less space to park the same number of cars as a conventional parking garage. The amount of land used affects sustainability issues such as development density and maximizing open space.
Another “green” advantage is that by using electromechanical automated parking machinery to move cars into parking spaces, Robotic Parking Systems reduce pollution inside a garage . 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.
Did you know that tire and brake dust pollutants 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.
Personal vehicles are inevitable despite attempts to promote ride-share, public transportation and other means. Using a Robotic Parking System is a step toward greater efficiency and green parking.
In a New York Times article about Robotic Parking Systems, Darius Sollohub, a New Jersey Institute of Technology professor who studies parking and urban land use, commented: ”This is amazingly proficient use of space. It may provide one of the solutions to the most important conflict in urban design: where do you put all the cars in environments where car volume is high and space is at a premium?”
A Robotic Parking System can park the same number of cars in half the space as compared to conventional garages and offers more security, less emissions and greater convenience for users. The compact Robotic Parking System minimizes the impact of parking and offers solutions for better usage of available land area.
