Vehicle pallets are probably the most common method of vehicle transfer in automated parking systems. The vehicle is parked on the pallet in the parking module and the automated parking system moves the pallet around the system without touching the vehicle. Considerations for pallet transfer in automated parking include:

  • Empty pallet management
  • No mechanical contact with vehicle
  • Fixed pallet size within system
  • Pallet maintenance, cost and weight
  • Pallet storage height on parking floor
