Automatic Extinguishers

In one of my project consultant is asking automatic extinguishers in car parking area. For each car we have to fix one extinguisher on the ceiling and in case of fire the glass bulb (similar to sprinkler) will bursts discharging dry powder. 


Is there any standard or article on these type of extinguishers regarding how to design, size and select them. Can we use them as replacement of other fixed extinguishing methods mentioned in NFPA ? 


Please give reference other than NFPA 10 and NFPA 17.
