Any piece of machinery or electronics made by man will fail at some point.
Just look at cars, appliances and computer
s

to name a few. The only way to
successfully overcome this inherent failure is the strict application of TRUE
redundancy throughout an entire system. This
is not

just simply installing
two motors on a single machine; it also means providing two of the same

machines as well as redundancy of components in a single machine.


Robotic Parking Systems

provide true redundancy with multiple elements
controlling the same process to provide alternatives in case of failure.

No
single
machine or component
failure will ever result in the system being
inoperable.

REDUNDANT MACHINES AND COMPONENTS

The Robotic Parking System uses only off
-
the
-
shelf, high
-
quality electrical
and mechanical
components with L10 lifetimes of 40,000 hours or above.
As part of its strategic partnership with Robotic Parking Systems, General
Electric supplies all motors, electronics and automation controls for the
automated garage.


Every machine has built
-
in redun
dant components. In addition, at least two
of each type of machine is installed in the automated parking facility. Both
of the machines can perform the same tasks at the same time. Therefore, if
one machine needs maintenance or repair, there is always a ba
ckup
machine to keep the cars moving into and out of the garage.




FAULT TOLERANT SERVERS GUARANTEE CONTINUOUS AVAILABILITY

Robotic Parking Systems use
ultra high
-
end,
redundant,
fault tolerant
Stratus servers (fT

99.999% worldwide uptime) guaranteeing continuous
availability.

More on these servers is in the
June 2011 issue of ParkSmart
.

AUTOMATION SOFTWARE

GE’s Cimplicity® automation software
powers the Robotic Parking System.
This software controls the machinery, lifts, motors, sensors and other
automation components used to transport the vehicles in the parking
garage.



Cimplicity is used worldwide in processes where thousands of movements
a
re performed on a 24/7 basis such as in automobile assembly lines at GM

and

Ford as well as in seaports around the world for container handling.

SOPHISTICATED DIAGNOSTICS AND REMOTE ACCESS

All Robotic Parking Systems include a patented full diagnostic suite and
high level warning system.


The software records every rotation of
any wheel, bearing, gearbox and
motor. All moving parts are monitored, and operators see every
movement and car location on display
s

in real time. Supervisors can be
alerted, and
any
needed maintenance is immediately reported online to
the service departme
nt.

The diagnostic system provides up to five different alarm messaging
classifications. These early warning indicators and alarms recognize and
report conditions before a problem
occurs
. Messages are sent to the
computer system on site and can also be aut
omatically forwarded to
technicians' beepers or cell phones.

These early warnings ensure proactive maintenance and a high level of
uptime.

Rea

time remote access allows off
site trouble shooting by
operators or the manufacturer, if needed.
