If you feel weird entrusting your wheels to the valet guy, how would you feel about letting a robot handle them? If it makes you feel even more trepidation, you should probably steer clear of West Hollywood‘s new automated parking garage.
Up to 200 cars can rest in this automated parking garage, which is reportedly the first of its kind on the West Coast. The advantages to automated parking are numerous, and include reduced carbon emissions, increased room thanks to not having to make room for people or on and off ramps, greater efficiency, and more.
