Project Description

Solo Lift is a system that modifies the control system of a lift to provide hands-free operation. It uses sensors to ensure safe use. With this system, a single user can operate the lift, which will save labor hours on construction projects. We built a lift stand-in that uses electrical controls in order to test our system. The Solo Lift integrates into the control structure and provides additional functionality without harming the existing system.
