Robotic Parking Garage

A fully automated basement parking garage is slated to be unveiled in New York City's Chinatown this February. This garage will cram 67 cars into a volume typically occupied by only 24 cars in a traditional garage. Via San Francisco Chronicle.

I'm just waiting for New York to build parking garages like Volkswagen's storage facility in Germany [Neatorama].

I was in Japan in 2001 and they had these things EVERYWHERE. I wondered how long it would take for them to get to the US. Guess I got my answer.

There's a fully automatic parking garage in use in Munich/Germany too. It holds up to 284 cars...

YTou beat me to it Anita

apparently the company who sold the software to the Hoboken Parking garage was not fully paid and stopped updating the software regularly causing the malfunction....

so the lesson to NYC is you can fire a human w/o pay but you cant fire a computer system w/o paying first....good luck
