Imagine an airport parking… Now think how much space it occupies, yet somehow, we always struggle to find a free spot to park the car.
Stanley Robotics has a solution for this conundrum, consisting of fully autonomous robots and intelligent storage management software. Said robots can take and move any car, lifting them by the wheels and block-parking them much closer together without risking dings and dents. As a result, Stanley Robotics’ system can arrange up to 50% more vehicles within a given area. And because they are able to operate in existing car parks, no new parking infrastructure is needed.
The company’s value proposition is simple — the ability to optimize vehicle storage management by storing cars in blocks — and unsurprisingly, it has managed to score a few airports to test its technology.
The first test was at Paris-Charles De Gaulle in 2017. It been performed for 5 months and met a huge success with the public, paving the way to large scale deployments.
A year later, the first outdoor car park managed by robots has been opened to the public beginning at Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport. And then, in 2019, Stanley Robotics signed a contract with Gatwick Airports.
Stanley Robotics' technology can help without requiring a hefty premium. Instead of building new parking spaces, which can be both expensive and time-consuming (in terms of negotiating to acquire the new land) — the company offers a smart system and robots that can arrange up to 50% more vehicles within the same area. In that sense, it delivers instant results with existing infrastructure and should be an easy sell.
This could be the airport authorities' project to expand the parking space at a much lower cost. Instead of procuring extra land, Stanley Robotics' system could be used to arrange up to 50% more vehicles within the same area. That's an instant saving at a fraction of the cost.
A company could contact Stanley Robotics to distribute their technology in another country (or city) and then pitch the solution to the airport authorities or the government, depending on who's in charge of the airport. It should be a relatively easy sell with the technology being able to arrange up to 50% more vehicles within the same area. That's an instant saving at a fraction of the cost.
