I tried new smart parking in Villagio Mall (Doha, Qatar) today. As always, it was difficult to get parking in Villagio during weekend. This new facility can accommodate 12 cars in vertical mode. We’ll need to show istimara containing information about our vehicle as max allowed weight is 2400 kg (mine is 2100).
Total time for car located on the top to reach the bottom is around 40 second. Very useful, and I think it is one of early model to future parking system like the one shown here (futuristic car park video, connected to apps via internet)
I wish they give roof cover in the future, you can’t imagine how hot the car parked on top area during summer (almost 50c). Here are some picture snapshot, as well as video showing the machine delivering my car (cadillac srx4, located on position no.2 from top).
