Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between a fully automated and semi-automated smart parking system?

A: Semi-automated Puzzle solutions and fully automated AGV parking systems are considered automated parking and compress footprints giving you back valuable square footage.  

In a semi-automated parking system, drivers can park and/or retrieve their own auto, so this system rids you of any demand for parking attendants therefore lowering your OpEx.  Once the users vehicle is stowed within the system, the semi-automated Puzzle system can move the car up and down or left to right to find its nesting space.  

On the other hand, in a fully-automated parking system, the driver pulls into a loading bay where they remove themselves and leave their auto, the system will then maneuver the auto and autonomously stow the users auto within the parking vault.

Q: What is the difference between mechanical lift systems and semi-automated Puzzle Parking systems?

A: In a mechanical stacker system, individuals must operate for it to move, or you must incorporate attendants to manage the parking and retrieval process.. The mechanical stacker parking system is usually a Double, Triple, or Quad Stacker that can raise the vehicle directly up on the platform so that more than one vehicle can be parked in a vertical stack. We strongly encourage trained personnel to operate these systems due to the manual processes of storing or retrieving autos in a vertical arrangement.  

On the other hand, in a semi-automated system, there is no demand nor need for attendants or personnel to retrieve autos. Once the driver has parked their vehicle within the system, the semi-automated Puzzle system can intelligently move the car up and down or left to right.

Q: Which properties are semi-automated parking systems suitable for?

A: Our semi-automated parking systems are mostly suitable and used for commercial office and multi-family residential complexes. 

Q: Can electric cars be charged in semi-automated parking systems?

A: Absolutely, our semi-automated smart parking systems are EV capable and feature charging facilities for electric vehicles.  We offer Level II smart charging capabilities that allow you to bill the user pro-rata and also reduce the number of electrical meters therefore reducing your overall build costs when compared to competitive vendors. 

Q: What are the maintenance requirements of semi-automated parking systems?

 A: Maintenance and upkeep of the parking systems by TAPCO are easy as they are designed for minimal maintenance and durability. However, please note that regular checks and maintenance schedules help ensure optimal performance.
