We live in a world that’s in love with automation. And why shouldn’t we be, given all the great technological advances and ways that automation has improved the world around us? Today, automated parking solutions are changing the way that parking garages function; saving space and man-hours, and a lot of other hassles.

Fully-automated parking solutions have been popular internationally for some time now. In cities like Paris, where the first automated garage debuted back at the turn of the 20th century, automated parking is nothing new.

So besides saving space, what else can you gain from automated parking?

Standardization and consistency: No longer are you relying on people to allow vehicles into and out of the garage. Even when having valet parking in the building, there is still the potential for human error or a lack of consistent services. Automated parking delivers a quick, efficient experience every single time.

Reduced energy costs: An automated parking garage will use a fraction of the energy of a standard parking structure. You won’t need as much ventilation or lighting since it’s all automated and there aren’t people within the space, which can save a fortune on electricity and other expenses. Plus, the cars aren’t running as they’re parked, which helps reduce emissions.

As you can see, it’s no wonder that automated parking systems are becoming popular in cities like New York, L.A., and beyond. If you need a better real estate parking development, consider automation.
