The IoT mirror for lift cars

We present here “Gateway”, IoT (Internet of Things) technology applied to glass mirrors in lift cars (Italian Patent No. 102017000031537 – 22 March 2017; European patent pending). It transforms common lift car mirrors into interactive touch-screen displays (managed remotely via internet). Unlike traditional lift car video screens, the system has many different purposes: • touch-screen interactive display; • digital signage and communication; • emergency connection to 24-hour servicing (through an additional micro camera); • maintenance support (direct video/audio connection between HQ and maintenance personnel on site). The system is extremely light and thin, with no impact on lift car weight and space. The whole system is a tailor-made product that can be easily adapted to all situations (new cars and modernisation).
