4.10 Intelligent elevators using TI mmWave sensors
See how TI mmWave sensors are bringing many benefits to the elevator space, including:
- Angle and velocity detection / response
- Immune to environmental conditions (sunlight, dust, poor lighting)
- ASME 17.1 compliant
The ASME A17.1-2019/ Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators (22.214.171.124) requires that objects and bodies approaching the elevator are detected before the door fully closes. The safety code stipulates that the elevator sensor must detect approaching objects up to 500 mm (20 in.) away from the elevator door. The code also states that these the elevator sensor must detect objects that are traveling at a speed of up to 1 m/s (3 ft/s).
