Making valet parking an automated experience

Unikie’s Automated Valet Parking solution is designed to make valet parking an entirely new experience with automated services. With automated valet parking, automotive manufacturers and car park operators can offer their customers new services, time savings and new added value. The entire customer experience can be produced digitally through a dashboard or mobile application.

Automating parking area or garage traffic reduces risks of accidents and offers possibilities for new automated services such as:

  • Automated charging of EVs on demand (the charged vehicle can be moved from the charging bay to a new spot freeing the bay for other vehicles)
  • Automated car wash service
  • Quick car drop-off and pick-up
  • Fast online vehicle software updates
  • Automated winter/summer tyre changes

We are currently building a demonstration on Autonomous Valet Parking in our fully operational development and test facility located in Turku, Finland.

DEMONSTRA­TIONS AND TESTING

The demonstration of our Automated Factory Parking solution which is a close relative to Automated Valet Parking has been operational for some time and showcased to a number of OEMs. Please see the “sneak peek” version of our demonstration. You can also request a live demonstration or the full demonstration video of the solution.

WANT TO SEE FULL DEMO?

Want to see the full demonstration of our Automated Parking Solution? Our full demonstration, filmed on a live showcase presentation, includes video inside the vehicles, video of the LiDAR point cloud, the Vehicle Mission Control Platform (Control Hub).

TECHNOLOGY

The technical key idea behind automated valet parking is to remotely plan and control the movement of multiple vehicles in real time using a centralized and automated vehicle mission control platform (Control Hub), which defines and shares the mission route and specifications for specific vehicles.

The missions defined by the control platform may vary depending on the need for services. Each vehicle can have its own mission plan and the vehicle will be maneuvered accordingly.

The AVP solution uses HP Mapping and Sensor Fusion from multiple sources (LiDARs, Cameras, Radars, etc.) for highly accurate localization and positioning of a specific vehicle and Edge Computing to relay the maneuvering commands to a vehicle through a secure network connection.

The AVP system uses the cars telematics, electric power steering, automatic gear box and cruise control to remotely control its movement as if the car had full Level 4 autonomous capabilities. The control algorithms can plan maneuvers and guide cars more accurately than a human driver would producing precise and repeatable results while simultaneously moving and parking a large number of vehicles safely.
