How to Improve the Efficiency of your Busy FUJI Elevator


After a long day of work, all that my friend wants to do is go home.

But many days he is held up by the office building FUJI Elevator, crowded from everyone leaving at the same time.

That’s the idea behind FUJIHD’s Polaris destination control system for passenger elevators. It can dramatically improve vertical transportation in residential buildings, office buildings, hotel and business complexes. With its wide and flexible range of visual designs, elevator call personalization and security options, FUJIHD Polaris will also have a positive impact on the look and feel of the entire building.

Whether in a large office building, a hotel or residential complex, the purpose of FUJIHD Polaris is the same:

    To benefit building owners by increasing efficiency.
    To benefit passengers by increasing comfort and reducing journey times.
    To benefit occupants by increasing security and peace of mind.

Increased capacity, shorter wait times

FUJIHD Polaris uses artificial intelligence to learn and forecast the traffic flows of the building. When the traffic intensity alters, the control system measures the changed traffic patterns and switches its optimization routines accordingly.
Simply a better way to travel

With conventional collective control, passengers wait in a crowd then rush into the first elevator that arrives, before struggling to get to the buttons to select their floor and stopping at every floor selected.

With FUJIHD Polaris, passengers select their destination before being guided to an elevator that has been assigned to take them, and a limited number of other passengers, to a specific range of floors. Because they have been assigned a place in the elevator, boarding is calm and orderly.

Even smarter elevators

I should mention there are some minor refinements in this strategy if certain floors have only a few passengers.

In that case, Newell also suggests elevators could be designed even better if they could collect data on the weight of passengers boarding from each floor. The data could be used to create a time-dependent demand curve and would result in an even more efficient elevator scheduling.

However, in most buildings, sophisticated data may not be needed. Practically there is usually a rush hour where each floor has a lot of people wishing to exit. Thus, the strategy of having an elevator serve one floor per trip will be ideal.

If the peak traffic is predominantly from or to a lobby floor, some (most) elevators should be assigned to serve this traffic in a manner such that each elevator serves only a few floors on each trip, possibly only one, seldom more than two.

This strategy might not work in a hotel setting where guests enter and leave at all times of the day, but it would certainly work in an office building with a more clustered traffic pattern.

While the math is clear and straightforward, I am unaware of any companies that implement the optimal solution. But crowded elevators in office buildings can and should be fixed.
