mmWave sensors improve artificial intelligence algorithms for more efficient use of elevators
Modern elevator systems strive to reduce passenger wait times and increase the efficiency of people movement throughout a building. Sending an elevator to an empty floor increases passenger wait times and wastes energy. Systems which rely on simple motion sensing cannot distinguish between one or multiple persons waiting for an elevator. The ability to individually count the number of people waiting for an elevator can enable more efficient elevator dispatch thereby improving passenger experience as well as lower energy usage and operating costs. In this session I will discuss how millimeter wave sensors can be used to improve elevator control system algorithms to reduce passenger wait times and energy consumption.
