Default Automatic parking

I saw a picture in today's Times of India (B'lore edition). The max automation I have seen are duplex parking lots in Germany. This one seems real fancy. I wonder how it would work during power outage.

Has anyone used automatic parking with a central feeder system? How does it work?

No Prasadee, I haven't seen this automatic parking system anywhere. I doubt that it will work in India - especially considering power cuts and the high costs. I think it is just a too-futuristic-for-India idea.

Doesnt shopper stop in bandra have something like this? You park your car into the slot and the slot moves up down sideways. I think there are 3 levels of parking at that place.

Even Kamala Mills has it. And so does a residential building at Worli.

This will not work out in Bangalore. The population in Bangalore has increased like anything. It will be very difficult to maintain this kind of automatic system in Bangalore even if they have one.

Nothing is too late. If it's working elsewhere in India it'll work in Bangalore also. It's the attitude of people that has to change - that is simply pushing off an idea without even trying it saying it wouldn't work. And because the population and vehicle traffic is increasing in banglore we need a system like this because these automated systems can make efficient use of the existing space available. Saves a hell lot of time too for busy commuters, shoppers, officegoers.
