This is interesting – The fabled Hoboken Automatic Garage had an “incident” the other day with a car getting damaged when a sensor went awry. Read all about it here. The damage seemed to be minor. But that isn’t the point.
When there was a problem with the operation a couple of years ago when Robotic Parking ran the site, something like this would have been seen as the world coming to an end. However, now that the city of Hoboken runs the garage, it’s a case of “all machines have problems.”
I wonder what effect this will have on Robotic’s breach of contract suit against the city. Time will tell.
