Boomerang Systems, Inc.'s RoboticValet Chosen for Student Housing Project at University of Illinois
Jan 20 14
Boomerang Systems, Inc. announced that it has executed an agreement to provide 240 parking spaces using the RoboticValet Parking System, to be incorporated into a student housing project on East Green Street in Champaign, Illinois. Boomerang's RoboticValet system is a automated parking solution incorporating robotics, software and hardware. This patent-pending technology eliminates ramps and sharply reduces the number of drive aisles, allowing up to twice the density of parked cars and requiring as little as half the space required by a conventional garage. RoboticValet(R) robots drive on concrete slab floors and use a proprietary automated guidance system to transport vehicles to and from parking spaces. Cars' ignition systems are shut off before being parked, slashing carbon emissions and electricity consumption for ventilation and lighting. Boomerang's technology allows the East Green Street developer to reduce the parking garage footprint and to increase the amount of resident living space. The 16 story project is adjacent to the University of Illinois campus and is being developed as a joint venture between Chicago based developers HERE Enterprises, LLC and Campus Acquisitions. Construction has already started and is anticipated to be completed in 2015.
