The application of stereo-garage relieves the problem of short of parking spaces. The automated transporting vehicle applied in automatic car parking system further raises the efficiency and reliability of the system, and from structural considerations, the automated transporting vehicle is divided into two parts: movement mechanism and lifting mechanism. This paper reviews various representative patents related to the automated transporting vehicle, especially focuses on the navigation method of movement mechanism and the type of lifting mechanism. The differences of different methods and different types are compared and analyzed and the characters are concluded. In the end, current and future development of automated transporting vehicle are also discussed.
