Automated Robotic Parking

A professional look at the automated parking industry.


Crane Parking System

A Crane parking system consists of a central lifting and positioning mechanism that is built into the center isle of a parking structure. The rails that the crane glides on are installed at the ceiling and floor and run down the center isle. This crane mechanism is responsible for positioning a vehicle at a selected parking slot. Parking slots are positioned on either side of the center isle.

Typically there is only one crane installed on the rail set. However, to increase the redundancy of the system, another crane can be added to the rails and the two are coordinated by software. Keep in mind that with this configuration the parking slots located on the extreme ends of the aisles will not be reachable by both cranes.
