Automated Parking Systems Demystified

Automated parking garages are a futuristic-sounding parking solution designed for mixed-use parking, residential parking, and commercial parking applications. With a combination of precisely designed machinery and sophisticated software to park cars in tight spaces without human intervention, users find automated parking systems (APS) very simple to adapt to, and they appreciate the elimination of the headaches associated with navigating a conventional parking garage. For developers and architects, automated parking can change the entire balance sheet of a project. While automated parking technology seems futuristic, these systems are readily available right now and are being used in the United States and all over the world. The need for superior parking solutions is critical to deliver ROI for lots where conventional parking space requirements cut into developable space, and where finding a way to provide parking in a smaller footprint can render an impossible project possible.
