Schindler debuts its robotics installation system for elevators (R.I.S.E)
R.I.S.E paves the way for greater automation and digitalisation in the elevator industry
Schindler, a leading global provider of elevators, escalators and related services, has introduced R.I.S.E. – Schindler Robotic Installation System for Elevators. This innovative robotics system provides a new level of worker’s safety and takes precision of elevator installation to the next level. This breakthrough symbolizes Schindler’s commitment to providing digital and urban mobility solutions to shape smart cities of the future.
As a technology leader in innovative urban solutions for tomorrow’s smart cities, Schindler’s R.I.S.E couples artificial intelligence with elevator technology to enable the safe and precise installation of elevators. Robotic systems are becoming increasingly important for ways of automating many of the construction industry’s repetitive and physically demanding tasks.
R.I.S.E consists of a self-climbing robot, which measures the elevator shaft, drills holes with greater precision and accurately sets the anchor bolts to support a safe and fast installation of the elevators. This automation sets the stage for mechanical installation on pre-installed anchor bolts which is repeated at every level, making it ideal for high rise installations. Increased accuracy, better quality installations and greater safety in demanding work conditions are some of the key benefits for the customers.
Digitisation extends the capabilities of R.I.S.E by improving its ability to record actions performed by the robotic system and to automatically exchange data with digital models of buildings. The innovative technology was recently shortlisted for the Innovation Award 2019 from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats.
Vivek Dwivedi, head, corporate R&D, said, “We are pleased to introduce ‘R.I.S,E’ by Schindler. At Schindler, we strive to provide an impeccable service to our consumers with tangible benefits for everyone. This technology symbolizes Schindler’s commitment in shaping the smart cities of the future by providing digital and urban mobility solutions.”
