Nedap launches automatic destination systems for elevators to improve people flow in the lift and save time

Automatic destination systems are outgrowing traditional lift systems more and more. Nedap is working closely with the best elevator suppliers, so one can:

  • Improve people flow.
  • Ensure people can only enter floors they’re allowed to enter.
  • Set default floors and user characteristics.
  • Identify themself at lifts with a badge or mobile.

Traditional lift systems are wired manually and have no data. They don’t know how many people are waiting or where each person wants to go or is authorised to go. So one waits for a lift, and when they enter it, and press the button for the floor they want.

With the use of automatic destination systems however, one can register key characteristics of each person using the building. This means that when they present themself at the lift, the lift system knows which floor or floors they’re allowed to go to and calculates which lift and circumstance is best for them. If one needs to go to a different floor from their home floor – they can select the floor they want. If they’re authorised to go there, it will take them there instead.
