Gerhard Haag Biography
Gerhard Haag has carved new roads in the fields of architecture and engineering, when he re-engineered the concept of automated parking. Coining the term and concept of “robotic parking” he developed not only the physical structure but the software technology to elevate the idea to a fully computerized parking garage that essentially parks its own cars, dramatically cutting down space requirements and saving customers the time and frustration involved in driving around floors and up and down ramps.
One of his companies, Robotic Systems LLC, was presented with the Arabia Corporate Social Responsibility Award by the Emirates Environmental Group.
Haag was the developer of the Automated and Mechanical Parking Association guideline for automated parking, now adopted as the standard by the National Parking Association in Washington, DC. He initiated the National Fire Code for automated parking for the National Fire Protection Association and serves as a technical committee member for the association.
While continuing to design and build cutting edge robotic parking garages, Haag also produces stunning architectural designs, interior design and furniture design — all channels for expanding upon his purpose to uplift the lives of those his products touch.
Haag is also a regular face in humanitarian and social causes, most recently leading teams of hurricane relief volunteers with the Florida Governmental Emergency Management and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency)
