Influence of Technology on the Elevator and Escalator Industry

What is Smart Elevator Technology?

Michael Rosario, Construction Tech Review | Thursday, January 14, 2021

Elevators are the leading mode of transport worldwide; they transport over a billion commuters every day globally.

Fremont, CA: Elevators being a leading mode of transport, there is a massive need to optimize the usage of time associated with these systems. By incorporating new technology for elevators, the smart elevators can cut time by an average of 50 percent. There is an increase in the technological developments that will revamp the future of the smart elevator market. Artificial intelligence, connected systems, smart city initiatives, and several other advances will not only transform the upward trajectory of smart elevators but will also catalyze a new wave of technological innovation in the smart elevator project trends.

Connectivity

Internet-connectivity is the near future of elevators. The demand has led to the installation of these elevators in smart buildings. The technology works by alerting a central dashboard of errors in the elevators. This helps the elevator operators to repair the faults efficiently, saving time and money. 

Cloud-Predictive Maintenance

Top 10 Safety and Compliance Companies - 2019Smart elevator technology enables the regular collection and analysis of data in the Cloud. If it finds any operation abnormalities, it compares the data with the whole elevator database to ensure an elevator component is about to malfunction. 

This entire process needs just a few seconds to complete, after which it informs the service operators through their smart devices. This means that any issues and repairs can be carried out efficiently before a problem occurs. The data analyzed consists of the door’s speed, the elevator acceleration, and any types of conditions of other elements. 

Cable-Free Smart Elevators

Because of the cross-industry innovation, manufacturers have designed cable-free elevators. These can travel in both vertical and horizontal directions as linear motors power them. This allows the cabs to move in linear directions along magnetic rails. 

The perks of cable-free elevators are that they are energy-efficient. Thus, they can reduce a building’s carbon footprint by a substantial amount compared to conventional elevators.
