Europe’s Largest Robotic Parking Garage Opens in Denmark

A robotic parking system installed beneath a cultural complex in Aarhus, Denmark, can accommodate more than 1,000 cars and park or retrieve up to 235 vehicles per hour, according to Dezeen.com. The system, which was developed by Germany-based Lödige Industries, can transport a car to or from a parking space in the three-level facility in one minute.

“Drivers park their cars in one of 20 ground-level booths and receive a ticket. Once the car has been vacated, it is lowered below ground and lifted onto one of 24 robots that transfer it to a parking space,” the article reports. Instead of a moving pallet, the system uses an ultraflat robot, which positions itself under the car and lifts it up at the wheels, taking it from the elevator to a transfer vehicle, which then takes it to a parking space.

The garage is set beneath Dokk1, a cultural complex that contains Scandinavia’s largest library as well as a light rail train station, cafe, classrooms, media facilities and more.
