How artificial intelligence can improve the passenger experience in a lift

If we were to be old 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago, that the use of AI technology in pretty much every industry available to date would be so significant you wouldn’t put a bet on it and most likely would have laughed it off, and yet here we are. Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the functioning of the globe on a massive scale and it is safe to say that unless you get on board you will certainly be left behind. 

But this does not only pertain to mass-producing industries such as construction, education, transport, or even the medical fields but also the more refined sectors such as design, architecture, and building with efficiency and efficacy at the forefront. 

And there is no more obvious improvement in having integrated AI than in an area we more often than not take for granted until we need to walk up 4 flights of stairs unexpectedly. Yes, we are talking about elevators and their undeniable development and increase in satisfied users and customer experiences. We may not have considered artificial intelligence for a more positive elevator experience, but now that we have, there is no looking back. And for good reason too. 

The future is up

The benefits of AI throughout the elevator industry are not only revolutionary in terms of upkeep, maintenance, and safety, but also the integration of interactive user involvement whilst heading to a certain floor. The preservation of elevators and ensuring a durable life span is well worth the investment, the importance of a lift refurbishment is essential in maintaining the highest level of quality of the product and the service it provides which we so heavily rely on. 

If integrating artificial intelligence into your elevator system and operations is something you are considering for your next project then consider these top curated reasons why you will be making the right choice and taking your new and improved build of the future to the next level. 

The plus side of elevators in collaboration with artificial intelligence

Other than optimizing elevator operations and significantly increasing their efficiency, we have many advantages to make the most of. Not only do they now use data analysis and algorithms to determine the most efficient passenger flow routes and schedules, but with artificial intelligence at the forefront of the operating system, it can accurately predict preventative maintenance issues so risks are substantially eliminated. 

Let’s dive in and see how much more AI brings to the proverbial table and the advantages that go along with it.

  • Increased security 

Implementing facial recognition through AI is a feature that will enhance your security on another level. Therefore allowing only authorized personnel to enter specific floors or areas. Long gone are the days of vintage key cards or authorization codes. 

  • Emergency detection 

AI systems can quickly detect emergencies such as malfunctions or even fires and commence appropriate evacuation or safety procedures accordingly. With this rapid response system, you can have increased peace of mind your employees, staff, and guests are in good ‘hands.’

  • System reliability 

Data from sensors in the functioning and operating system are routinely analyzed and elevator status is determined by passenger load, mechanical performance, and floor requests. Maintenance is kept an eye on at all times and is flagged when even the slightest concern pops up so it can be dealt with swiftly.

  • Real-time monitoring 

Elevator optimization is a must and with machine learning a welcomed benefit, this data and real-time information collected is used to record traffic patterns, and passenger and floor demands. It also regulates the energy consumption rating which is then optimized to increase efficiency in consumption while reducing user wait times. 

  •  Personalization 

What we love about artificial intelligence is its effortless adaptability and by continually analyzing data individual preferences can be noted and ultimately personalize your user’s experience. Think of a regulated temperature whilst leaving your apartment floor and heading to the lobby, ambient lighting, or music to evoke a sense of relaxation readying you for the day, or better still, a personalized greeting as you step onto the elevator. What more could you ask for from an elevator, right?

Embracing the top level if I don’t mind

It is no secret that artificial intelligence is here to stay so why not make it work for us, in some ways with us, and make life easier and more enjoyable? Implementing AI into your elevator operations will be the best investment and appreciated decision you will make for your projects of the future.
