Step 1. In a simplified explanation of how technical wizardry works, the pad moves the car to an elevator, which drops down (or rises) to a floor where space is available. Then the pad moves out of the lift and glides along to deposit its load.
Step 2. When someone retrieves a car, he or she uses a key fob or smartphone to alert the system, which then delivers the vehicle. Typically, the vehicle arrives within five minutes or less after being summoned.(Source: Park+ Twitter)
