Stan will be a new robotic parking valet in Lyon, the third largest city in France. You’ll be able to make an online reservation or use your smartphone app, drive to the car park location and lock your car. Voila, you’re done and can even take the keys. Then your car will be waiting for your arrival since they have the flight information already.

Check out the video from the company who created it, Stanley Robotics in France.

No more hunting for space, jostling with other drivers or sustaining those minor dings and dents.

Is the slogan “Leave Your Parking To Us!” that far away in the U.S.?
