Early trial success shows promise for robot valet company

April 14, 2020 | Case Study

Autonomous vehicle startups are notorious for being capital-intensive with long timelines to commercialization. After recognizing this to be true, French robotics startup Stanley Robotics pivoted from autonomous vehicle development, but it continued applying its knowledge of autonomous systems to service the mobility space in a different form. The company saw the potential to automate fleet- or large-scale vehicle storage management by integrating autonomous navigation and sensor technology with a mechanical vehicle lift. The decision to shift may very well be paying off, as the most recent trial of the company's autonomous valet system, which began in 2017 at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport in France, saw four of the company's robots successfully service a 500-space lot over a year-long period. In response, Stanley Robotics and Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport have entered a new phase of deployment, agreeing to increase the number of robotic parking spaces from 500 to 2,000 and accompanying robots from four to seven.
