Smart Urban Park System (SUP), Graz, Austria

Worlds Biggest E-Charging Station your lift to the future
Are you still just parking or are you already letting your garage park for you?  With the new Smart Urban Park System (SUP®) the architectural office Strohecker Architects from Graz is paving the way towards the future of mobility. The parking concept, which will be available in a junior, master and senior variation, scores points with its sophisticated e-mobility emphasis, complete C02 neutrality, easy maintenance and fast construction phase.
More space for urban living - that’s what the fully automated, subterranean system will increasingly create in urban centers in the future. The disadvantages of an ever- increasing lack of space will be minimized; a maximum number of cars can be accommodated in a minimum amount of space. That’s how simple parking will be in the future.  Getting in and out of the vehicle will take place in the access area of the SUP®, so the vehicle will already be turned over to the intelligent garage aboveground. An up to fourfold lift system guarantees a fast, fully automatic parking process as well as a prompt return of the vehicles to the surface. You can control the parking process yourself, using an app developed by the Styrian start-up company Accessio. If you want your vehicle back, you enter the command via your smartphone or smartwatch.  The app then provides precise information on when the car is ready to be picked up. If you are running late, the car is automatically parked again.
The whole process of parking a single vehicle takes about 100 seconds.  Depending on the system, the time factor can be reduced by up to 25 seconds per parking process. The sophisticated technical system comes from the German company PALIS, which is also responsible for the two famous parking towers in the VW Autostadt in Wolfsburg Germany. That system has been running almost maintenance-free for 15 years.
As the motor of the vehicle is already turned off at the ground level, Smart Urban Park® can score points with complete CO2 neutrality. The future of mobility is also taken into account by means of an ingenious e-loading system from the Graz-based company Volterio. As soon as a car is parked in one of the parking spots, it is automatically charged by integrated loading modules on the ground. Thus, upon request, the e-vehicle owner gets back a recharged vehicle.The advantages of using SUP®, especially in the urban centers, can be summed up in a few points:
Significant CO² reduction
Support of future oriented car usage concepts (Car Sharing)
Scalable model, responding to different requirements
Aboveground car-free space brings refurbishment and improvement of city centers as well as rise of positive pedestrian experience 
Improvement of sustainable transport infrastructure 
Fully automated car parking and charging system
