Elevators in India are expensive.
A lift ticket can cost more than $50.
But now, a company in Hyderabad has invented an automated ticket machine that can handle tickets as low as Rs 50.
“Our company is launching a new generation of automated ticket machines that will make it possible to save time in the form of a very cheap lift ticket,” CEO of the company Kishore Yadav told NDTV in a recent interview.
The new system, called Elevator Boots, has already been tested in Hyderabad.
The company claims it can get a ticket from a taxi to a hotel within 15 minutes, which is more than what a taxi driver spends on fuel and taxes.
“The cost of a taxi ride will increase by 10-15 per cent, and it will be a much more cost-effective way of getting a lift,” said Yadav.
“With this technology, the average fare will be less than $20.”
The Elevator Bricks are a robotic arms that are used for the delivery of lift tickets in India.
This is the second robotic arms made in India to be sold for Rs 50-200.
The first, called “Vega” was introduced by Air India in 2015.
Air India and a number of other airlines use the robotic arms to move large loads between airports and to transfer passengers.
The arms are used by the airline to move freight between cargo planes.
It is an efficient way of moving cargo, but is costly, and the robotic arm needs a constant supply of batteries.
“I have been working on this technology for a long time,” Yadav said.
“This is a technology that has been around for a few years and is still under development.”
The machines were developed by the Hyderabad based software firm DigitasLabs, which makes the technology behind the company’s software.
“It’s very difficult to develop such a system and we were forced to develop this from scratch,” Yadava said.
The first machines were launched in Hyderad, but the company was unable to raise the funding to develop the system in the country.
In order to make it more affordable, the company has developed a system where the passengers’ name, address and photo ID are recorded.
The machine also records the distance between the passenger’s address and the airport.
When a passenger wants to get off the elevator, the name of the passenger is printed on the ticket.
The software then prints the ticket, so that the passenger can get off at a safe and convenient place, according to the company.
The system is already in use at several airports in the state.
A pilot program was launched last year, and is currently being tested in four airports.
