Over the last decade, advances in AI and IoT have changed elevators and escalators beyond their mechanical function of getting people travel up high-rises with speed and comfort. They have become more intelligent, connecting to the cloud where the data they collect are analysed and stored.
One of the keys uses of IoT in the elevator and escalator industry is in predictive maintenance Insights. As for artificial intelligence, as more data is collected and stored in the cloud, it will be able to make better decisions and determine when should maintenance be carried out and what action should technicians take to resolve the problem.
Furthermore, application programming interfaces (API) can be developed to create solutions within an integrated ecosystem.
