Elliott Museum Grand Opening Unveils World's Largest 'Model A' Vintage Car Collection using Boomerang Automated Robotic Parking System
Custom built robotic three-story stacking system allows visitors to experience new exhibition like never before
Part of $20 million dollar rebuilding of Florida technology, art and history museum
STUART, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Boomerang Systems, Inc., (OTCQB: BMER) a leading designer and manufacturer of automated robotic parking and self storage solutions, and the Elliott Museum, today announced the opening of the museum's "Wheels of Change" exhibition. The exhibition presents a fleet of 55 antique cars using Boomerang's robotic automated parking system as a key feature of the museum's grand opening. "Wheels of Change" will showcase the world's largest collection of 'Model A' trucks, connecting post-1900 American culture and innovation with today.
Boomerang custom built and designed the groundbreaking technology to display the collection using a robotic, three-story stacking system. Museum staff will help visitors use a multimedia kiosk to select a car and bring it down to a custom turntable that will display the vehicle alongside a multimedia exhibit featuring historical news headlines, inventions, art and entertainment tied to the period of the car. This is the first automated parking system of its kind ever installed in a museum setting in the U.S.
"As the leading provider of automated parking solutions in the U.S., Boomerang is proud to have designed and implemented a system that meets the unique needs of the Elliott Museum and will allow guests to experience this exhibit in a whole new way," said Chris Mulvihill, President of Boomerang Systems. "No matter the client, our goal remains the same - to leverage our best-in-class technology, depth of experience, and talented team to deliver a product uniquely customized to each client's needs."
The Elliott Museum was originally founded in 1961 by Stuart resident, Harmon Elliott, as a tribute to his father Sterling Elliott, a prolific inventor that inspired the museum's theme of innovation. The new Elliott Museum will provide expanded galleries, studio space, as well as a 50-seat theatre, cafe, archival library, and flexible space for up to 500 people.
A centerpiece of a $20 million dollar 'green' re-building of the museum, Elliott Museum officials selected Boomerang Systems as part of a competitive bid process to create the "Wheels of Change" presentation. The system allows the museum to securely present its cars using energy efficient Boomerang technology.
"The Elliott Museum is a testament to American innovation, technology and design and what better way to show that than through the automobile? As the leading developer of automated parking solutions, and American innovators themselves, we are thrilled to have chosen Boomerang Systems to tell, and vividly illustrate the story of American invention, mobility and design," said Jennifer Esler, Elliott Museum CEO, "Boomerang's first-class technology, design acumen, and exceptional execution were all on display throughout our collaboration, and we couldn't be happier with the result."
Other media presentations associated with this display include "Parking in America," which incorporates images and information about where Americans have parked their vehicles over the past decades, beginning with backyard alleys in the early 1900s. This presentation will explain the computer-driven robotic parking system featured in this exhibit.
