One of the greatest problems of a big city is associated with the aging of urban downtown centers and the failure of the traffic structure to support a traffic system that becomes more and more chaotic every day. While a growth of public policies which encourage downtown revitalization and the improvement of mass transportation should help revert part of this scenario, ironically it aggravates the already complex parking problem in urban downtown centers. This issue requires a new approach as well as a search for new solutions. It is imperative to look for creative solutions when planning new parking locations in downtown areas by adopting denser vehicle storage in specific sites. One possibility is the implementation of buildings with modular metallic structures, fully automated, comprised of a simple structure without the need for floor and wall fillings. Take for example the large warehouses in Brazil; these buildings, because of their intrinsic characteristics, do not allow the user access to its interior as the vehicles are conducted by fully robotized equipment.

Keywords : Metallic structure; garage; parking; pallets; industrialized systems; modulated systems; modular automated parking systems; MAPS; retrofit; automation; vehicle; car; automobile; urban congestion; congestion charge.
