John Mauro, Parking Vault Ltd

I got a chance to sit in on a presentation with John Mauro, Parking Vault Ltd presented at the University of Arlington Fort Worth Campus. This was the most creative and efficient use for parking space.

Automated parking is a computer operated system of equipment that parks and retrieves vehicles with no human involvement. Automated parking decreases the floor area and cubic volume of a garage thereby increasing the saleable or rental square feet of a building while protecting patrons and vehicles because no one ever enters the actual storage vault and vehicle engines are turned off so there is no risk of vehicle damage.

Benefits Of Automated Parking

automated parking system can use 40% less surface area compared to a conventional garage to fit the same number of parking spaces.

More importantly automated parking garage can save up to 60% of the cubic feet of a garage leaving more space for other more profitable uses.

Vehicle Security: Your Vehicle is Secure in a Storage Vault
Your vehicle is as safe if placed inside a bank vault. Once a driver parks his vehicle in an entry cabin and turns off the engine, the driver is the last person to touch the vehicle. The vehicle is moved by the parking equipment until it is stored in its computer assigned parking space inside the garage Storage Vault. No person has access to the Storage Vault and no equipment ever touches the vehicle. You are the only person who has access to your vehicle so leave your belongings safety inside in vehicle!

No risk of Dents from other drivers opening doors into your vehicle
No risk of Damage from other drivers backing into your vehicle
No risk of Theft No risk of Vandalism

Personal Safety: Parking Turned into a Pleasant Experience 
Personal safety is optimized because a driver never leaves the safe and comfortable confines of the well lit entry cabin. The entry cabins are conveniently located and well monitored so there is no walking aimlessly through a garage searching for your parked vehicle. No driver ever has to walk alone through a garage or a dark stairwell to retrieve his vehicle.

No risk of Robbery
No risk of Rape
No risk of Physical Harm


No CO2 Emissions as vehicle engines are off during entire storage and retrieval process

No Fuel Usage driving up and down ramps searching for a parking space or exit

Lower Noise Pollution as no tires screeching up and down ramps and no horns honking

Reduced Building Footprint permits the balance of a site to be dedicated to other “green” features

 

Interesting Facts:

1 mule or lever runs about 1 million dollars

20 cents per car

Parking rates are still under debate
