A robotic, laser-guided, fully automated vehicle, manufactured by Shenzhen-based Yeefung Automation Technology Co. Ltd., has been installed in the Chinese city of Nanking. Called GETA (get a car), the robot slides under a vehicle, picks it up, and places it in a parking spot in even the tightest of spaces in about two minutes.

Yeefung General Manager Wu Hao says that the company developed the robot in response to limited parking in big cities worldwide, increasing efficiency by 20 to 40 percent. China has about 172 million vehicles on the road and projects that number to increase to 250 million by 2020.
