Dr Otto Poon Lok-To, Chairman of ATAL Engineering Group, said, “We take pride to be vanguards of this first-of-its-kind smart parking system in Hong Kong. Over the years, ATAL has continued to be a pioneer in introducing new and innovative technologies to Hong Kong. Aligning with the HKSAR Government’s Smart City Blueprint 2.0 for Hong Kong, our newly developed Robotic Parking system is able to address the issue of land shortage and will become a new solution to enhance long-term sustainability for the city.”
“Adhering to our long-term strategy of ‘New Technology, New Market and New Business Model’, the HKSTP project marks another milestone for the expansion of our business portfolio. We are also pursuing other intelligent transport business opportunities including the Free Flow Tolling System and Traffic Control Surveillance System. Looking ahead, we will uphold our mission to transform Hong Kong into a world-class smart city and further explore potential development in the Information, Communications and Building Technologies (ICBT) sector. We will actively drive innovative technology advances through our R&D capability, and strive for significant contributions to greater economic efficiency and operational effectiveness, while strengthening our competitive edge, all to achieve higher returns for our shareholders.” Dr Poon concluded.
There's probably 200+ of these systems in Shenzhen. Why did HK have to pay Mr Otto Poon money to build a test site for HK?

It doesn't look like a 'high-rise' parking space - might not be the best prop for James Bond - but if they pay the placement fee should not be a problem.
Have not seen any automated parking spaces in Chicago, despite that cool old 1932 contracption - guess it was too expensive to operate. There are extensive parking garages below the street level basically everywhere - more or less unmanned - but still expensive to use.
