Smart elevators can monitor performance, give updated status, make real-time maintenance decisions, and advance reporting, among other things, allowing one to remotely manage and monitor the elevator.
FREMONT, CA: According to estimates, the smart elevator technology market was worth USD 18.75 billion in 2019 and will be worth USD 38.27 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.1 percent over the projected period. Various types of connectivity are used to control or monitor a smart elevator.
The elevator interacts with the elevator controller via the GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pin or UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitter) and connects to the custom hardware via a Wi-Fi or LAN interface. Hardware communicates with IoT central and sends signals (any change in GPIO pin or register value) to it. The hardware will identify when the elevator controller alters the signal, and in that case, the hardware will send the signal to the IoT central. IoT central will deliver the data to the logic application layer, which will take it down to the main logic to build a coherent signal, fault prediction, and fault detection, which will then be communicated to the user interface through WebSocket, a computer communications protocol.
The next-generation IoT Elevator is surpassing existing elevators in terms of efficiency. Earlier it was required to test the elevators manually, keep track of the records, and monitor the status, which was far too time-consuming and inefficient. Find below the elevator use-cases:
Prevent Unauthorized Access: Assume that a group of people utilize the elevator to go to their destination. This smart elevator now only permits persons who have fingerprint access or a smart card to use it to enter the elevator. The RS232 DB9 connector connects the elevator to a fingerprint sensor or smart card, and the data is shared using UART. PSOC6 hardware will use the Modbus protocol to read the register and send the signals to an IoT-enabled public cloud. As a result, only authorized individuals should use the elevator.
Predict Destination: Here, the machine will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to make a prediction. The technology identifies the user's face and sends their data to an IoT-enabled cloud. The IoT cloud will verify the user's authorization before running the Machine Learning (ML) model algorithm and identifying the user's final destination floor. Suppose the user has previously visited multiple floors. In that case, the elevator will send a voice message through the VoIP protocol, and the user can respond by speaking and telling the arrival floor using the voice command.
