Solar-powered Vertical Parking System Saves a Lot of Space

Share

One of the major problems in big cities is the continuously increasing number of cars that almost completely fill all parking spaces and often create huge traffic jams.

Taking into consideration the issue, Baita Bueno, a Brazilian designer, thought about creating a vertical parking system, which makes it possible to park your car at a 90-degrees angle. The system decreases the space required today to park a car by over 60 percent, which means that the space required to park one car today will be able to fit 3 vehicles thanks to the new system.

The project is entitled "90 degrees." The parking system will not only be able to offer secure parking space, but it will also take advantage of renewable energy with the help of solar panels, thus being able to fuel cars.

The vertical parking system features tire support and side clamps to provide a tight grip. In addition, it also has a built-in generator and fuel plug, which means that your car will always be charged.
