Artificial intelligence in elevators
It has been a few years since we talk about artificial intelligence for our lifts. Today, we would like to clarify the situation. Let’s try to explain what the Artificial intelligence is. To be simple, Artificial intelligence is a new type of computer program. The idea was born in the 50’ but the machines were not powerful enough to make it work. We have to wait until 1990 to see Watson of IBM (an artificial intelligence program) win against a world class chess champion. In those programs, human do not control everything, the software analyse and chose its own actions. More recently, we proved that the software could learn by himself, it is called the “Machine Learning”. Examples are usually given to the software and from those examples, it can calculate and generate a result. For less than 10 years, it goes even further with the “Deep Learning”. The softwareREAD MORE
It is only a prototype but it could be the future of the elevator. A lead that only OTIS, one of the big 4 is exploring. They worked on this project with GREMI, a mixed laboratory of the CNRS and an university in Orléans. It is an hybrid elevator that works with solar panels located on the top of its building and with a fuel cell. Thanks to that fuel cell, we can work without any battery which contain toxic metals like plumb. The fuel cell works thanks to the generation of a tension by the oxidation of hydrogen on an electrode and the reduction on the other electrode of an oxidant such as oxygen. Why is it interesting ? Because the hydrogen stored on solid form takes only a few space. The chemical reaction is clean because it only produce water. In the end, we have a battery 3READ MORE

Partout en Europe, les opérateurs téléphoniques modernisent leur réseaux pour permettre un meilleur transfert des données sur Internet. En ce sens, des tests approfondis en VoIP (technologie qui permet de délivrer des communications vocales via le réseau Internet - IP) sur fibre optique ont été réalisés à Palaiseau en 2013. Il a ainsi été démontré que cette nouvelle technologie ne prenait pas en charge les méthodes actuelles de transfert de données sur les lignes analogiques, comme le DTMF (tonalités générées pendant la communication établie), mode de transfert de données à ce jour utilisé pour la téléalarme d’ascenseur. Selon la Norme Européenne EN81-28 (Téléalarme pour ascenseurs et ascenseurs de charge), il est nécessaire d’identifier l’appel, qu’il soit vocal, technique ou de test périodique, et de l’acquitter après traitement. Pour ce faire, des échanges DTMF sont réalisés entre la Téléalarme et le centre de réception d’appels. Puisque à ce jour, la VoIPREAD MORE
It was nearly transparent but in 2017, 2 years after Mitsubishi, Hitachi made the fastest elevator in the world. Let’s enjoy this opportunity to look this speed race again. In 1931: Otis. Elevators of the Empire State Building reach 7,1 m/s. They keep the title of the fastest for a long time. The tower itself remained the highest in the world until 1967. In 1972: Otis. For the second time, Otis elevators became the fastest with The World Trade Center of New York with a speed of 10,2 m/s. The towers themselves are the highest until 1974, with their 415 meters high. These towers are then dethroned by the Willis Tower in Chicago, equipped with Schindler elevators at 8.1 m / s, so they are not the fastest in the world. In the same way, the Petronas Tower, champions of height from 1998 to 2004 will be equipped with OtisREAD MORE
