14 Oct Multi-Level Automated Car parking System
Driving a car in traffic is not scary, parking it is scary!!
Approximately 15 lakh cars are sold every year, to provide parking space in metropolitan cities has
become a biggest challenge. If a person commuting in car to reach his destination, He has to park his
car in one place & catch an auto rickshaw to reach his destiny.
A multi-level car parking system is meant to maximize car parking capacity by utilizing vertical rather
than horizontal space.
Multilevel Automated Car parking System Optimises Space for parking. It also reduces parking time
and Also Environment friendly.
Some of the challenges faced in building Multilevel Automated Car parking System are:
- Unpredictable / expensive development and building costs
- Inappropriate design leads to Improper Handling during automation
- Complicated PLC & Electrical design
- Higher Maintenance cost
- Faster delivery of the Car
However we can overcome these challenges
using SOLIDWORKS. It provides the solution in
all the departments in building a parking
Addressing design and loading concerns
Parking systems involves lot of civil and
structural design. Key factors include safety
regulations for handling the car.
SolidWorks Simulation software not only avoids costly prototyping but also quickly assess design
response to loading conditions.
Kinematics and Automation
As we know Multilevel Automated Car parking System involves lot of kinematics in lifting and placing
the car in right slot. Stepper & Servo motors are used to achieve this automation. SOLIDWORKS
Motion helps in selection of correct motor and also to calculate physical parameters like linear
displacements, angular acceleration, power consumption etc.
