Chongqing puts new slant on conventional parking

January 11, 2019


Abstract : Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has launched an inclined stacking frame to park cars, which adds 70 percent more parking spots within a given area.

CHONGQING, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has launched an inclined stacking frame to park cars, which adds 70 percent more parking spots within a given area.

The parking lot, located in the Chongqing Science and Technology Innovation Center, is converted from a traditional one.

Each car on the frame will be lifted automatically and stacked parallel at a fixed slope angle, with the number of parking spots increasing from 24 to 40, said Yang Zizhong, general manager of Shengjie High Technology and team leader of the lot project.

The inclined parking frame is also equipped with 12 censors and eight ranging radars, enabling the frame to avoid obstacles and stop automatically, according to Yang.

Charging poles for electric cars could be installed on the frame, he said.

With rapidly increasing numbers of vehicles in big cities, residents often find it difficult to secure parking spots in urban areas.

Yang said a parking robot would also be introduced to the intelligent parking lot, so that drivers can leave their cars directly at the entrance, with the robot taking care of the parking.
