This Is Stan, a Robotic Valet That May Soon Be in an Airport Near You

Airport parking lots are pretty suitable, especially for frequent flyers. You park your car in a closed and guarded facility and then go on your regular business or leisure journey without getting worried about your vehicle getting jacked or damaged.

The problem is that, upon your return, it is hard to have the necessary energy to get your stuff and still go back to the parking lot searching for your car. While it’s true that some parking lots offer great valet services, for sure none of them is as fancy and interesting as Stan, the robot that promises to remove all headaches from airport parking.

Built by Stanley Robotics, this robot can operate with the use of sensors, analyse a vehicle’s shape and size, before transporting it, apparently without causing any damage at all. For increased efficiency, several Stans can be deployed in the same parking lot.

What We Know About Stan?

The Stan robot is part of an extended parking system, which includes drop-off garages and a mobile app. The customers can reserve a spot using the app, after which they can drop the vehicle in a designated garage. A Stan robot will then go and pick up the car from the designated garage and moves it to the parking facility. To pick a vehicle back, the opposite process happens.

This innovative system will not only reduce the waiting time for customers, as it will also maximise the spacing in parking facilities. Because it relies on sensors that are very precise and no doors are ever opened, because Stan parks the cars much closer to each other than what a human valet can. In fact, in a trial that is to be carried out in a UK’s Gatwick airport long-stay parking lots will see a change of over 170 spaces to 270 using this system.

The system which was developed by Stanley Robotics has already been trailed at several French and German airports, and they are now moving for a trial in Gatwick, the first in British soil. The system defiantly has promise, so it will not be a surprise if soon enough it will be seen in airports all around the world.
