With the fast-paced development of UAVs or drones, the urban environment is changing rapidly. Drones are already capable of making deliveries and could very well become part of our everyday life in the near future. As a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, KONE understands the urban flow and that the surrounding environment is subject to major changes like drones. Our mission is to create an automated drone that is capable of using elevators independently. We can accomplish this by utilizing solutions such as indoor navigation, cloud-based services, computer vision and other emerging technologies.
