Architect Max Schwitalla, elevator expert Paul Friedli and neuroscientist Arndt Pechstein are transferring the principles of intelligent elevator systems to urban space: modern elevators know where passengers want to go before they enter the lift. For the Berlin team this is also a recipe for success in urban mobility. In this networked system, cars driving autonomously and public transit operations harmonize seamlessly. Thinking this further into the future, the ideas are expressed in an innovative type of vehicle. So-called “Fly Wheels” link up to form longer units when this is required. As a collective they use existing subway and train tunnels, but for the “last mile” the vehicles are disconnected to take passengers to their destinations individually.
