automated chauffeur robot parks your car and returns it when summoned

from self-driving cars that can be controlled via smartwatches to robotics that can tow, new technologies are actively being developed to prevent our terrible parking. the hikvision ‘parking robot’ is different to others, though, as it acts as an automated platform that then parks your car for you, before returning it when summoned. this not only streamlines space in parking lots but also reduces stress, potential damages, and also offers more time for people to go shopping, for example.

when entering the parking lot, users drive their car onto a metal platform and, when in the correct position, exit the vehicle. hikvision’s ‘parking robot’ – an orange palette-like form – operates underneath the platform as it moves and rotates the car via sensors into an empty parking spot. when finished, the owner can then call back their car and the robot will return it in the same fashion.
