A victory for innovation: Innovation in Elevation contest results
The big contest “Innovation in Elevation”, organised by KLEEMANN, was a huge success! Students from all around Greece, warmly responded with innovative ideas to the three subject areas KLEEMANN presented:
- The “Green” elevator
- Security and quality of the elevator
- The elevator of the future
The contest had two phases:
During Phase A, the candidates sent their ideas to KLEEMANN. All of the ideas were evaluated by the contest’s committee which selected the ones to be promoted to Phase B.
During Phase B, the selected candidates had to prepare and demonstrate a presentation on their innovative idea in front of the evaluating committee, which decided on the two winners:
1st award – 4000€ prize: Iasson Manoloudis, a Computer science graduate from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki- for his project "Elevator health monitoring system". The project showcases a system that monitors the “health” of elevators and the data gathered. The system includes sensors, mobile and web apps, as well as cloud connection.
2nd award – 2000€ prize: Dimitris Thomaidis, student of the Polytechnic University of Xanthi, for his project “Green elevator with the use of artificial intelligence”. The project showcases a type of elevator that has an energy recovery system, makes use of the solar panel synergy and of the artificial intelligence, resulting in a systems that is in total communication with the habits and demands of the people that use it.
The contest is part of KLEEMANN’s core targets: to urge young minds to explore the challenges faced by the elevator industry, as well as promote totally fresh ideas presented by them.
Congratulations to applicants and winners!
