  • Description

    A dream long cherished by harassed-frustrated motorists, a land with no parking problem, is liable to come true. Visnews filmed a demonstration model and the actual structure Dec 23 of an automatic parking structure. Merely by turning a key, at the entrance to this three floored 'dream' until the indicator registers a vacant site, the car, already on an elevator ramp, is lifted to the floor designated and through an ingenious system of 'shuttling' is parked automatically in the site allocated. When the car is needed the owner presses a button against the number of his site and the 'shuttle' brings his car to the elevator.

    This particular structure consists of the ground floor and two higher floors, but by using the same system there is no limit to the size of building or amount of cars that could safely be 'parked'.
