It’s roof can collect solar energy for the lighting of the underground garage, and the intelligent storage and multiple parking extraction port make it more convenient.
Passengers only need to push bikes recognized by fingerprints into the entrance, and the manipulator will fasten the bicycles and find the right parking spot.
