HoloMatic has unveiled HoloParking, China’s first smart valet parking solution that operates 24/7 in all weather conditions.
Unlike parking assistance systems, HoloParking does not require the vehicle to be driven next to a parking spot. Rather, it allows a driver to leave a vehicle at the entrance of the parking lot thus free travelers from the burden of time-consuming searches for parking spots.
Using HoloParking, the vehicle finds a parking spot and completes the parking maneuver on its own without human supervision. For pickup, the returning driver can start the system remotely and the vehicle will automatically drive from the parking spot to the boarding area. that frees travelers from the burden of time-consuming searches for parking spots.
Velodyne Lidar is supplying its lidar sensors for a new autonomous driving technology from Holomatics. Using which high-resolution, three-dimensional information about the surrounding environment is collected. HoloParking excels in a wide range of scenarios. Whether functioning in an environment with low light, a complex parking lot mixed with people and vehicles, or in severe weather conditions, HoloParking provides users with safe and reliable autonomous parking services.
This year, the commercialization of HoloParking in China is starting in select cities, with initial rollout in Shanghai. By 2020, HoloParking is planning to support over 20 cities, each with at least 20 parking lots.
