A multi-storey, automated car park, capable of housing 765 vehicles, opened on August 12 on the development next to the Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai.

“With this technology, you don’t need to drive through the garage to find a parking space. You simply drive your car to an entry station and leave your car to be picked up by the computerized lifts that will safely place it inside the building on a shelving system. When you leave, you return to a central point and your car is swiftly retrieved for you,” said Sami K Issa, general manager of Robotic Systems, the technology licensor.

Pre-opening performance tests of the system achieved more than 250 parking transactions per hour, said a release from the developers.
