Why is it a Good Idea to Move Toward a Smart Elevator Solution?

Construction Tech Review | Thursday, December 09, 2021

According to estimates, the smart elevator technology market was worth USD 18.75 billion in 2019 and is predicted to reach USD 38.27 billion by 2027, growing at a 9.1 percentage compound annual growth rate over the forecast period.

FREMONT, CA: Over the last decade, advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) have had a profound effect on the elevator sector. Proactive, condition-based analysis and predictive maintenance are all available with IoT in any form of elevator solution. Smart Elevators can monitor performance, make real-time maintenance decisions, provide updated status, and provide advance reporting, among other capabilities. This enables us to control and monitor the elevator remotely.

Different types of connectivity are used to control and monitor an intelligent elevator. The elevator communicates with the elevator controller via the GPIO pin or UART, and the elevator connects to the custom hardware using a Wi-Fi or LAN interface. The hardware connects to the IoT central and transmits signals (any GPIO pin or register). When the elevator controller modifies the signal, the hardware detects it and sends the signal to the IoT central. IoT central will export data to the logic application layer and take it down to the main logic to build a meaningful signal, fault prediction, and fault detection, communicated to the user interface through WebSocket.

The Internet of Things Elevator, the next generation, is proven to be more efficient than regular elevators. There are numerous advantages to using a smart elevator system, which is comprehended by briefly analyzing the elevator use cases:

Prevent Unauthorized Access: Assume that groups of individuals use the elevator to go to their destination. Now, this intelligent elevator will only allow those with fingerprint access or a smart card to enter. The elevator is connected through an RS232 DB9 connector to a fingerprint sensor or smart card, which shares data via UART. PSOC6 hardware will read the register via the Modbus protocol and send the signals to the public cloud that supports IoT. (like AWS, Azure). As a result, only authorized individuals should use the elevator.

Anticipate Destination: Using Artificial Intelligence, the system will predict the destination (AI). The technology identifies the user's face and transmits user data to an IoT-enabled cloud. The Internet of Things cloud will validate the user's authorization, run the Machine Learning (ML) model algorithm, and determine the user's destination floor. If the user has visited multiple floors, the elevator will send a VoIP protocol a voice message. The user can speak and inform the elevator of the arrival floor via the voice command in response to the elevator.
