Hong Kong Science Park Expansion Stage 1 (SPX1) Robotic Parking System has been awarded ‘Smart Mobility Grand Award’ from Hong Kong ICT 2021.
Located across Buildings 17W and 19W, the Robotic Parking system features a combination of technologies including AI, robotics & sensors, and automatic EV charging. It offers a safer and smarter enhanced car parking experience versus conventional car parks, with significant space savings and minimized lighting and ventilation power consumption.
“Car parking is one of the key issues in smart mobility. With the aim to optimise spatial efficiency, this entry is a promising innovative solution to address parking challenges. This solution adopts AI, robotics, and sensors technology to develop an automated guided vehicle robotic parking system. Integrated with the next generation technology, this is the first fully automated car park system in Hong Kong. Located at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, this parking system is publicly accessible to showcase Hong Kong’s smart city innovation. This robotic parking system also focuses on user experience with booking system to enhance flexibility to meet operational requirements. This is not only a technology application, but also a creative solution to meet business and social needs.” – Comments from Judging Panel.
