Urbanisation will see a 2.5 billion increase in city populations by 2050, and of the 10-11 billion population expected by the end of the century, around 70% will live in urban spaces. Factoring in the challenges that urbanisation represents for the world, it is more imperative than ever that we make sustainable choices to move towards creating cities that are not only pleasant but also the most environmentally friendly structures possible, offering efficient mobility in the city as well as inside buildings, with easy and cost-effective infrastructure.
The era of the rope-dependent elevator is now over, 160 years after its invention. ThyssenKrupp places linear motors in elevator cabins, transforming conventional elevator transportation in vertical metro systems. MULTI elevator technology increases transport capacities and efficiency while reducing the elevator footprint and peak loads from the power supply in buildings. Several cabins in the same shaft moving vertically and horizontally will permit buildings to adopt different heights, shapes, and purposes. The first MULTI unit will be in tests by 2016.
