In recent years, buildings are becoming much higher and larger. This requires a minimization of elevator space to allow more space for offices and residential zones.An elevator based on an alternative system has been developed to meet these requirements, the "Circulating Multi-Car Elevator." Using a one-tenth-scale model, Hitachi successfully verified this operating system, the first in the world. This video shows this revolutionary new elevator system. [August 2006]
