Tell us about the products that you offer for the multiparking system.
Multi-level parking systems can be either fully automatic or semi-automatic. The car needs to be driven to an entry point where the driver/passengers exit the car. It is then moved in an automatic or semi-automatic way to its assigned space. KLAUS Multiparking has a multitude of parking systems specially designed for every need.
• Dependent Stack Parking System – which provides dependent parking spaces. In this parking system, access to the above parking space is possible only after the removal of the car below.
• Semi-Automatic Parking System – where parking spaces are arranged on a maximum of three different levels, one level above the ground one on the ground & the other level in the pit. There are multiple combinations available considering the architectural and constructional constraints.
• Fully Automatic Parking System – is a completely automatic system that requires no human assistance other than entering the car at the parking room. It is the pallet-based system where a car is parked inside the storage system.
How is navigation facilitated in the multiparking system for the motorists?
Metropolitans in India are expanding fast and so have the number of vehicles expanded, but unfortunately, the parking space has remained constant or rather reduced due to the growing population. Vehicles continue to overgrow existing parking spaces, thus causing traffic jams. Now, the rising demand for parking space has turned out to be the next big problem after traffic congestion in the current urbanization.
A solution to this problem could be smartly worked out by providing an effective technology-based solution like multiparking systems. With a multi-level parking system, there is a possibility to go up to a maximum of six parking platforms in the footprint of one parking space which can free up a lot of space for amenities.
Apart from the limited space, cars parked in a system are safer from theft or damage than parking on the street outside your homes and offices. And users do not need to drive around for several minutes to find a parking spot, thereby reducing fuel consumption and having a net positive effect on the environment as well.
What are your views on the future of the multiparking system, especially in India?
It is generally notedthat most of the drivers spend nearly 15- 20 minutes searching for a parking space. In case of unavailability of space few of them resort to unauthorized parking or just cancel their planned activity.
It is a welcome move that the government has finally brought parking spaces under the law. With the implementation of the RERA Act & New Development plans (DP’s) by local governing authorities, it is now mandatory to provide parking spaces in the new constructions.
India today is growing economically and technologically. There are also a lot of new car variants entering the market, which many people aspire to buy. Keeping this growth in real estate as well as the automotive industry in mind a multiparking system is seen as a technology very much in demand and a solution acceptable to its users. This technology ensures optimal utilization of the limited space and will try to ease the parking woes. In addition, these multiparking systems are fast, safe, and user-friendly.
