Lödige Industries Completes Australia’s First Autonomous Car Park

Lödige Industries has constructed a fully autonomous car park for the new ‘The Lennox’ luxury high-rise building in Sydney, Australia.

The system is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere. It uses Lödige Industries’s robotic CUBILE technology to allow users to drop off their vehicle at one of five transfer cabins. From here, the process is fully automatic.

With a payload of up to 2.5 tonnes per vehicle, the system can handle all common cars and SUVs

Once a car has been dropped off, the transfer cabin’s gate closes, and the vehicle is transported to the parking level, where it is moved by flat robots on to a horizontal transfer vehicle and delivered to a free parking space.

This system enables the most efficient use of the space in the parking facility, allowing up to 60 percent more cars of this size to be placed in the same space compared to conventional parking structures.

As property prices are high in this area, this space-saving feature is is attractive and cost-effective for developers, while also increasing user convenience.

Nicholas Tripptree, Managing Director for Lödige Industries in Asia Pacific said:

“Efficiency and aesthetics do not have to be a contradiction and can complement each other very well. Our automated parking facility at ‘The Lennox’ proves this. While the state-of-the-art system provides as many parking positions as possible in a space-saving manner, it also contributes to the modern and sophisticated ambience of the new building by providing a convenient and modern user experience.”

When wishing to retrieve their cars, residents use a smartphone app and the vehicle is returned to a transfer cabin in around 2 minutes.

Lödige Industries’s software monitors and controls all storage processes within the autonomous car park. The software calculates the most efficient parking positions, as well as access and departure routes. Approximately 90 vehicles can be parked or retrieved per hour in this facility.
