Automated Robotic Parking

A professional look at the automated parking industry.


RGC Parking System

The Rail Guided Cart (RGC) is similar to an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV), however the RGC utilizes a simplified design strategy that supports a robust, reliable, and cost effective solution.

RGC systemA vehicle enters the system by being driven into a transfer cabin and parked on a platform. Then a RGC picks up the platform and vehicle and drives it into the system for storage. As more RGCs are placed in a system, the throughput (and associated cost) is increased. However only to the point that the number of transfer cabins, lifts, paths and shared resources exist.

Similar to AGV systems, RGC systems drive on a concrete floor slab, however along small guide rails. Since the RGC can travel in both the forward/reverse and side to side directions, the travel paths can be quite flexible and able to maneuver in tight confines.

Elevators are used when multiple floors or level transitions are employed. Some are designed to transport the RGC along with the vehicle and platform, others just allow for the vehicle and platform to ride.
