Robot valets head to London

San Francisco (CNN Business)Travelers flying out of London’s Gatwick Airport may soon have a robot parking their car.

Later this year, the airport will test an autonomous robot that slides a large, slender bed beneath vehicles and totes them to spots in the lot.
The airport plans to experiment with this robot parking system in one of its long-term lots for three months, according to an application the airport filed with the Crawley Borough Council in December. The hope is that the autonomous system will enable the airport to pack many more cars in the same amount of lot space.
