The Design of Automatic Lift Control with Status Alert Capabilities Through Internet
Typically, a conventional drive lift is used to move from one floor to another in tall buildings. This system suffers from instability and maintainability issues due to the unavailability of proper monitoring system for users. This paper proposes a model for monitoring and controlling an elevator system to maintain autonomy. The paper is focused on an elevator design with Arduino controller. The system relates to a designed Ethernet card that is assembled with hypertext machine language. The proposed work comprises of a sensor module which has the capability to monitor and control through internet service. The control of the elevator is attained by a designed graphical user interface system that acknowledges the proper maintenance of the prototype. Whereas, the conventional lift system provides
only limited information such as floor number under similar operating conditions, our proposed monitoring system can display the lift temperature, number of users, weight, oxygen level, floor status, lift speed, body temperature and fault location. To validate the effectiveness of the proposed method, the efficacy of the system is analyzed with simulation and hardware assembly. The overall results verify that Arduino is suitable for monitoring and controlling an elevator system with the help of a webpage through an Ethernet shield.
