The most unusual project Criterion had the opportunity to work on was a fully automated parking system. Implementing the principles of automatic storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), Criterion developed a patented methodology for picking up automobiles without embedding anything in the floor underneath the vehicle. The vehicle was loaded onto a platform which transported the vehicle to a parking location. Storage and retrieval took 1-2 minutes.
- Automatic parking of vehicles – faster, safer (people and vehicles) and more convenient,
- Lower parking garage construction costs
- Parking garage footprint and cubic feet smaller than traditional parking garages
- Vehicle picked up from flat floor – no embedded devices
