Avoid The Stress Of Parking, Giant Robots Will Do The Work For You
A French startup company named as the Stanley Robotics has developed an automated valet service managed by a robot. The tech firm just raised $4 million from Elaia Partners, Bpifrance, as well as Idinvest Partners, for this project. The robots will pick up a car at the entrance of a parking lot then, park it stress-free.
This service is very useful especially to people who really need to park their cars almost every day. Parking and leaving a car in an airport space costs the owner expensive rent, especially if it is for long days. In fact, Airport parking lots have turned into the most profitable businesses for airport companies, according to TechCrunch.
Meet Stan, The Robot That Can Park Your Car
Stan is the name of the robot that manages the parking lot built by Stanley Robotics. With this robot, a car owner can imagine much bigger parking lots as he leaves his car near the airport. In addition, even when the owner comes back home, Stan knows the correct path and can bring the car back right before the owner's arrival.
If somebody is going away for a long time, Stan knows that it can put the car away in a block area and double park another vehicle in front of it. The new parking robot can work with all kinds of cars. It doesn’t require a key as it clamps the vehicles, lifts the entire body and moves it throughout a specific area. And once the car reaches the parking space, Stan puts the car down.
According to CNBC, the most reassuring story here is that Stanley Robotics is already being rolled out at Charles-de-Gaulle airport in Paris. It is mainly designed to return the owner's car at the airport departure when the driver has returned from a trip. This project has been years in the making, but, let us face it, a parking lot operated by robots are more significant.
As the funding round is the concern, the startup plans of Stanley Robotics is to sign new agreements with more airports around the world. Working with this company is, in fact, cheaper than constructing a new parking lot. Airports can still build new parking lots like the usual, but Stanley Robotics’ offering is a really nice addition to the features.
