Outline

“P-ETA” (Parking becomes Easier with the Technology of Aida-engineering) is a system to design more user-friendly and safer parking lots. (Also, P-ETA comes from “Petanko”, a Japanese word for “flat”.) Statistics by an insurance company tells us about 30% of car accidents occur in parking lots. The causes are things naturally seen in parking lots: existing common type of car stoppers, uneven ground, lack of additional spaces, and intricate layout. Sometimes, even vending machines can distract drivers. P-ETA provides a solution to this safety problem with ideal design of parking spaces by analyzing accumulated parkspace-use data and by introducing our new car-stopper unit “FLAT&LOCK” which makes parking ground flat. “P-ETA” is a system to realize more user-friendly, safer parking lots.
