"FIBEE" leads passengers more smartly to their destination floors. By learning elevator usage data on a daily basis, FIBEE controls to give priority to handling capacity for congested floors such as morning up peak. Moreover, FIBEE saves energy according to the traffic situation.

What is the destination floor reservation system?

In the destination floor reservation system, as passengers register their destination floor at the hall, the elevator car to be used by each passenger can be informed ahead of time to the passenger, meaning the system can reduce congestion at the hall.
In addition, Hitachi FIBEE improves handling capacity and saves energy by original technology.

Usage of elevator with FIBEE

In FIBEE, the conventional hall buttons (Up and Down arrows) located at the elevator lobby are replaced by the destination floor registration devices. Passengers register their destination floor through these devices at the lobby instead of in the elevator.

Register your destination floor

Register your destination floor

  • Passenger is required to register the desired destination floor through the destination floor registration device located at the elevator lobby. (*1)
  • The destination floor registration device will display the elevator's name that has been assigned.
Move to the front of assigned elevator

Move to the front of assigned elevator

  • Passenger will now move to the front of assigned elevator and wait for the elevator.
  • Passenger enters the assigned elevator after its arrival.
Go to your destination floor

Go to your destination floor

  • As the passenger has already registered the desired destination floor, there is no need to push the destination floor button in the elevator.
  • Elevator will bring the passenger to the registered destination floor.
(*1)
Each passenger (even if passengers are going to same destination floors) needs to register the destination floor individually so as to allow FIBEE to effectively calculate the number of passengers being assigned to each elevator (to prevent elevators overloading and passengers waiting in vain for an elevator).
Passenger who can not board the assigned elevator has to re-register the destination floor.
If unusual registrations are present (i.e. one passenger enters multiple destination floors),FIBEE will not be able to identify these unusual calls, and still process these destination floors accordingly.
Accidental or wrong registration of destination floor cannot be cancelled.
