I’ll be honest, when I think of Budapest I rarely think of technology and automobiles. It seems however that I’m one of the only ones that doesn’t know about this unbelievably trick parking system that has been incorporated right into the center of the city. Built entirely underground the new system takes parking automation to a whole new level. Gone are the days of parking attendants, scratched up cars and waiting in line to retrieve your car as all of that nonsense has been replaced with a well thought out, beautifully executed new system that removes the human element. Watching the system operate is very impressive, but I’m wondering if it would actually work in an area like New York City where you have a wide variety of cars that come in all shapes and sizes. Then there is the question of cost as this system has to be and unbelievably expensive proposition. Either way though it’s nice to see that someone is thinking outside the box and trying to relieve the parking problem that most urban areas are currently facing.
