This video explains the whole process...but I sugest you turn off your speakers...unless you want to have the most awkward dance party ever.
Driving aimlessly is bad enough, so the only thing that could be worse is driving in circles looking for a parking spot. Then there are those drivers who deserve a special reserve space in hell for idling their cars waiting for a spot closer to the mall entrance because they can't be bothered walking a few extra feet.
A South Korean company may have a partial solution to that parking problem. There are more than enough cars on the road, but even so, there are even fewer parking spaces, especially in cities. Automatic parking systems, which have been used for years in Europe and Asia because of space constraints, are beginning to be considered in theUnited States.
MP Systems designed the software and technology that makes parking simpler and easier by letting computers do the work. The system can fit twice as many cars in the same amount of space and eliminate hours of combined engine use every day so drivers don't have to drive around searching for that elusive space. Drivers pull into a platform and technology does the rest. When drivers want to retrieve their car, they enter a code and the car is delivered back via the platform.
There's also another bonus. With automated parking, the physical footprint of lots are smaller and there are cost savings in the maintenance of these facilites. When people are out of the equation, it eliminates the need for climate control, walkways, elevators and even lighting. The biggest plus of all may be one that MP Systems hasn't even thought of yet: No more urine stains in stairway.
