MULTI is the world's first rope-free elevator system introduced in 2014. In this system, multiple elevator cabins are equipped with linear motors, which allows several cabins in the same shaft moving vertically and horizontally which permit buildings to adopt different heights, shapes, and purposes. MULTI increases transport capacities and efficiency while reducing the elevator footprint and peak loads from the power supply in the building. In 2015, a scale model of the MULTI system was shown. According to ThyssenKrupp, the first MULTI elevator unit will be tested in 2016.
