Teams Are Building New Parking Facilities Tailored To Next-Gen Vehicles
Today's disruptive vehicle technology is transforming tomorrow's parking spaces. Whether they are retrofitting existing garages to accommodate next-gen vehicles or building new facilities, project teams are trying novel approaches to keep pace with the future of driving. For instance, Bosch and Daimler recently completed a three-year pilot project to develop an automated valet parking system for driverless vehicles at the Mercedes-Benz Museum's parking garage in Stuttgart, Germany. Customers use an app to reserve the vehicle, which drives itself to and from a designated spot in the garage. "With driverless parking, people will save time and stress, and it will reduce damage to their cars, says Gerrit Quast, product manager, connected parking, Bosch, Stuttgart, Germany.
