The world’s first outdoor car park entirely managed by robots, developed by Stanley Robotics and VINCI Airports, is expanding. The number of spots available at Lyon Airport is set to increase from 500 to 2,000.
The service will be run by seven autonomous robots working simultaneously, while 28 cabins will be available for dropping off and picking up vehicles.
The partnership, which began in 2017, ultimately aims to offer over 6,000 parking spaces.
Clément Boussard, CEO of Stanley Robotics, says: “This agreement represents a major
development stage for our benchmark project on the Lyon Airport site, and for our service. The opening of 2,000 spaces illustrates how far we have come in terms of maturity, with a product that is increasingly professional. We are proud to have convinced an industrial player with such high standards as VINCI Airports to continue this development journey with us.”
Tanguy Bertolus, CEO – Lyon Airports, adds: “The robot valet service provided by Stanley Robotics and developed in Lyon meets the strategic objectives of Lyon Airport, namely, to enhance customer experience and reduce the environmental impact of the airport’s activities.”
Stanley Robotics is a venture-backed company that offers a smart and high-density car storage solution for the airport and for the car logistics industries.
