Lifting Arms

Lifting arms are sometimes used to cradle the vehicle tires when lifting a vehicle so it can be moved within the automated parking system. A vehicle is parked on a flat surface or car stand in the parking module before being collected by part of the parking mechanism. Considerations for lifting arms transfer in automated parking include:

  • Maintenance access
  • Mechanical contact with tires
  • Dealing with flat tires and differing wheel bases
  • More moving parts
  • Height savings, if no car stand is used
  • Vehicle ground clearance
