RockFarmer Opens Queens’ First AI-Powered Parking Garage
Queens-based developer RockFarmer Properties has opened Queens’ first AI-driven automated parking garage, located at the recently completed luxury condominium The Rowan, 21-21 31st St. in Astoria.
Designed by U-Tron, the system is equipped with advanced sensors and automated lift mechanisms, allowing cars to be parked in tight spaces without any human intervention, and utilizes AI to learn behaviors of customer’s driving habits to deliver vehicles faster over time.
“The future of parking has arrived in Queens,” said John Petras, principal of RockFarmer Properties. “We are excited to finally see the system in operation, providing much needed parking for local residents, shoppers and commuters looking for a safe, efficient place to park their vehicles.”
Drivers drive their vehicles into the parking bay, where the vehicle is automatically scanned and measured to determine its size and shape. The vehicle is then transferred on a dedicated pallet to its designated parking space via an automated lift.
