Robots Key to High-Tech Parking in Abu Dhabi
A parking system that uses robots is about to make its debut in the capital.
US company ParkPlus is installing its Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in a 12-storey residential building being constructed in Al Nahyan Camp, one of Abu Dhabi’s most congested areas.
The robotic car park, which has 110 spaces, is expected to be up and running in the next six months.
“The AGVs are robots used in factories to transport engines and heavy loads without human presence, but we’ve adapted it to the parking world,” said Cyrus Hodes, the managing director at ParkPlus Middle East.
“They have so far built four of the 12 floors,” Mr Hodes said. “We’re doing the automated car park in three levels underground.” Details
