In order to make spaces more efficient and reduce theft rates, students from the IPN developed a prototype for a motorcycle parking lot.

The student’s design of the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Culhuacan Unit (ESIME), would allow parking up to four motorcycles in one parking space.

The prototype is also designed to reduce theft, reported the National Council for Science and Technology (Conacy).

Alejandro Meza Quiroz, a member of the team that designed the parking lot, explained that the system was thought to be similar to elevator parking lots for cars, used in condominiums, shopping centers, and even some companies.

However, the design changed and the prototype was configured as a tower, which rotates the parking spaces, similar to a wheel of fortune.

"Once the driver of the motorcycle arrives at the parking lot, they only had to locate an empty platform and ask for it. As it happens with an elevator, so that it is at street level or on a platform, and later they would have to park their vehicle on it, where the motorcycle would be held from the tires by trestles that would prevent it from falling and being stolen," said Meza Quiroz.

Even though the parking lot is in a prototype phase, the students made the necessary calculations so that the parking lot supports motorcycles of up to half a ton of weight and defined the necessary materials for its construction.

Currently, the students who are studying the last semester of the Mechanical Engineering course are defining the necessary mechanisms to automate its operation.

They said that the automated prototype will be ready at the end of the year, and later on, they will look for some scheme to scale the technology until its application.
