Creates Space for Small Sites with a High Demand for Parking
Perfect Solution for Small Sites
Maximizing space is critical for architects and developers particularly on a small site. If too much space is consumed by parking requirements, too little saleable space may be left for the project to be viable. Also, green space and open areas for design or LEED certification may be compromised in order to fit more parking.
Robotic Parking Systems' RPS 100 automated parking garage is the ideal solution for small sites with a high demand for parking. This automatic parking structure uses only 50% of the land area typically required by a conventional ramp-style parking garage.
The RPS 100's high-speed efficiency and fast retrieval times ensure rapid throughout (the number of cars in and out per hour) and a satisfying user experience.
Robotic Parking Systems' RPS 100 can accommodate from 100 to 200 cars. Additional modules can be added adjacent to the facility to expand capacity. (Take a look at the RPS 1000 and RPS 200 for additional configurations.)
This flexible, modular Robotic Parking System can be built above ground, underground, inside a building, on top of a building or under a building. Lot sizes can be as small as 60 ft. x 60 ft. Height (or depth) can be from 25 ft. - 120 ft.
More Green Space — More Parking
Think of the space consumed in urban areas for just parking. The orange areas in this illustration represent typical downtown parking. We've used Columbus, Ohio as an example.
Now imagine being able to use half of that space for development, green space or other community projects.
Imagination can easily become reality.
An automated, robotic parking garage can reduce the space needed for parking by 50% as shown in the second illustration.
Creative freedom for architects and developers has arrived! Planners can hang any type of façade onto the clean outside structural support system of a Robotic Parking garage. Robotic Parking Systems installs its industrial lifts, machines, pallets and the computer control systems inside the supporting structure and never interferes with the façade.
Whether you choose a half-timbered, brick, aluminum, concrete or glass façade, the choice is yours. The garage can be designed to fit harmoniously into its environment.
Safer & More Secure
Robotic Parking Systems virtually eliminate the risk of vehicle damage or theft as well as the risk of personal injury so common in conventional lots and garages. Rather than spending an exorbitant amount of time driving around looking for a parking space, drive up to the garage and enter the ground level entry terminal; get out and lock the car; push a few buttons and simply walk away. When leaving, the driver returns to a well lit lobby where the car is quickly delivered to a ground floor exit terminal. Get in and drive away. Hassle free!
Eco-friendly & Cost Effective
The RPS 100 is a green parking solution. Electromechanical automatic parking reduces CO2 emissions and other pollutants and greenhouse gases. No cars are run inside the garage so there are no choking car emissions to ventilate. Also, since cars are not circling the block looking for a parking space, there is less pollution and less traffic congestion. Drivers get off the street faster!
Overall development cost can be significantly lower than for a conventional garage. Since there are no people or running cars inside the garage, there are lower lighting and ventilation requirements. Lower insurance costs, lower personnel expenses and smaller land area required and more – all add up to increased savings.
Underground applications are particularly well suited to the RPS 100. Because only half the space is needed for the same amount of parking as conventional garages, developers can save as much as 50% on the excavation alone.
Enhanced System Design
High-bay, stacker type design where all three movements (in and out, up and down, back and forth down the aisles) are handled by one central unit. In the case of failure, an entire portion of the garage can become inoperable.
The Robotic Parking Systems Patented Design
Enhanced, patented design where all three movements are separated and handled by individual intelligent components with true redundancy. No single failure will ever result in the garage becoming inoperable.
