In the past decades there were several developments in the elevator industry regarding safety, speed, but also economy and convenience. The main goal has always been to make the use of elevators more efficient, easier to use and more accessible to an ever increasing number of people.
Towards this direction, voice recognition has a significant impact on accessibility issues, at the same time providing a faster way of finding and reaching a destination, within a complex building. It brings power to passengers to voice-control the lift by pronouncing the floor number or any other related information (house owner’s name, profession, sector/area, etc). It supports multilingual operation and it has improved accuracy for lift cabins with precision rates as high as 97%.
