The initial year-long pilot took place at Lyon Airport in France, covered 500 parking spots, and serviced 8,000 users. The new agreement, set to begin in the summer of 2020, will see Stanley Robotics service 2,000 spaces with seven of its autonomous electric robots. What's important to note here is Stanley Robotics' successful transition from pilot- to larger-scale implementation, validating both the technology and use case in its beachhead market. Stanley Robotics' autonomous valet system has proven its initial worth to service the outdoor airport parking segment, and clients should expect future opportunities to expand to existing surface-level lots like those used for stadiums or by large fleet operators.
