Robot valets will start operating at Incheon Airport from 2021.

At the main international airport in South Korea, starting next year, robotic valets will be hired to deliver cars to the parking lot. Representatives of the administration of Incheon Airport and the Hyundai Mobis carmaker have signed an agreement under which the corresponding systems will be installed and tested in 2020, and from 2021 the robots will work as usual.

According to the airport administration, customers who come by their own car will leave it in a special zone (“collection zone”), where a robotic loader will drive up to the vehicle and take the car to a free space in a special parking lot.

Upon arrival, the client dials the number of his car on the corresponding board, and also pays the cost of parking, after which the robot valet will deliver the desired car from the parking lot to its owner.
