solution takes advantage of the square's incline, which constitutes
the height of an entire floor across the length of the structure.
The vehicle therefore descends in one direction, while driving
horizontally in the other - and arriving one floor lower when
completing the circle. The user can look for a free parking
space without using ramps, driving always downward in a large
spiral. For ascending to the surface or for quick descent, two
half ramps are provided, eliminating most of the two-way traffic
and so increasing the safety level of garage use.
