SEOUL, Aug. 7 (Korea Bizwire) — LG Uplus Corp., South Korea’s No. 3 carrier, and local governments will be the first in the country to launch a ‘parking robot’ business.
LG Uplus signed a business agreement with the city of Bucheon, Gyeonggi Province and other related companies to develop and commercialize the parking robot.
Bucheon’s ‘parking robot’ will automatically carry out parking procedures such as receiving, moving, and sending out vehicles.
With the robot operating, time spent on parking due to congestion and poor driving will be reduced significantly.
It is expected that the time required for parking and in and out of the car will be greatly reduced and the parking space required per vehicle will also be reduced.
Participating organizations in the ‘parking robot’ project will complete developing and testing robots by next year and distribute them to new industrial complexes and apartment complexes in Bucheon.
