Smart Elevator Control System for Power and Maintenance optimization

Hussam Elbehiery


The introduced research aims to develop a smart elevator control system that takes in consideration the aspects that conventional elevators do not consider like saving time, power, and costs. The introduced system deigned based on a 5-storey building. Using image processing and object recognition techniques to detect passengers and move the elevator car to the requested floor after going through an algorithm depending on the number of passengers inside the elevator’s car and the number of passenger waiting for the elevator on each floor. Then it has to decide which floor is more efficient to answer its call first depending on the direction the passengers inside the elevators are heading to. It can offer a solution to the passengers call distribution. The proposed system shows more desirable results than the conventional systems in simulations through less consuming power and increasing the life time for the elevators itself and less economic stuff by decreasing the maintenance costs.
