Freelevator project is sponsored by Kone, the global leader in the elevator and escalator industry. The multi-disciplinary team is an international mix of five students of Aalto University Finland and four PG students of Design and Innovation Class of ISDI Mumbai.
As a part of the PDP challenge, the team has to design an elevator transport mechanism using omniwheels such that multiple elevators can move in one shaft structure. Additionally, the team should develop an elevator car that should move both vertically and horizontally. The main challenge is to design the control in a way so as to attain maximum efficiency by optimizing frictional losses.
If you love your elevators, set them free.
