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.
