Details

Elevators operate all the time under varying people flow. For example in office buildings, the morning traffic is mainly from entrance floor to upper floors, while in the evening the traffic is mainly downwards when workers leave the office. Depending on the building type the similar daily traffic pattern may occur from one day to another, or it may also vary from day to day.

Once in a while some parameter or part need to be changed, and the impact of the change on elevator performance needs to be shown. Elevator performance is measured in terms of average call time. Call time of a landing call (call given by pressing an up or down button at an elevator lobby) is the time when the call is given until the serving elevator starts to decelerating to serve the call.

Call time is at least dependent on, in addition to elevator parameters, the number of calls and elevator availability. For example, an elevator can be under maintenance, or it is taken out-of-service for cleaning or for other purposes.

Your task is to develop a concrete machine learning application / concept that can be used to evaluate the impact of a parameter or part change on elevator performance taking into account the varying traffic conditions and other uncontrollable independent variables.

Who can create a challenge?

  • If you want to publish a challenge on the Open Ecosystem Network and get support from the community to solve your problems, you first need to be registered on the platform. Then you need to contact the Open Ecosystem Network administrator in the Community section. They will create the challenge for you. Search for “admin” in the Community section, and click on “Nokia Admin” to contact and ask for your challenge to be created.

 

How do I submit an answer/proposal?

  • To contribute to a challenge, first open the challenge page, and then click on the "start proposal" button on the right-hand-side. A new page will appear with different text fields to fill in and attachments to include. You can also link to an existing project you have previously created on the platform. Once you have finished, click on submit.
  • If you save as draft, your submission will not be completed and will not be submitted to the challenge owner.

 

What happens once I submit?

  • Once you have submitted your proposal, your ‘Challenge Submission Form’ becomes accessible by the creator or the challenge, who can see and edit your proposal. Through the challenge page, only the owner of the challenge can see the different proposals submitted against his/her challenge. It is up to the challenge owner to inform participants about decisions and potential next steps.
  • To note, when you save a submission as draft, it is not submitted to the challenge owner.

 

Who can see my proposal?

  • The owner of the challenge, the submission review committee, and the Open Ecosystem Network Administrator team are the only ones who can see your proposed ideas and solutions to the challenge.

 

What happens if my proposal is successful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is selected, the owner of the challenge will come back to you with further guidance on the next steps.

 

What happens if it is unsuccessful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is not shortlisted, the owner of the challenge will inform you using the messaging features of Open Ecosystem Network. Your proposed ideas will then be removed/deleted from challenge submissions.
