Lift (or elevator) breakdowns cause huge inconveniences to city dwellers and affect more than 80% of Singapore’s residents who live in high-rise apartments. Unfortunately, lift maintenance today is either preventive (e.g., follows a fixed cycle based on statistics) or reactive (the faults are fixed after they happen).
As symptoms typically manifest over some time before a breakdown happens, with the Internet of Things (IoT), massive amounts of data can be reliably collected from lifts fitted with myriad sensors. By applying artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to these data, along with operational data, such as fault records collected when a breakdown happens, predictive lift maintenance is now possible, empowering technicians to fix the lifts before they break down.
