As cities become more densely populated, transporting people and goods, safely and reliably to their destinations takes on much greater importance. Technological advances to improve mobility and drive green, energy efficient buildings are crucial to making cities better places in which to live and work. “Schindler is leading the way within the Vertical Transportation industry with sustainable growth and the digitisation of people flow, which is particularly relevant in the UAE. With the continuing urbanisation of the UAE population, the market demands development of advanced solutions to address urban mobility issues. We are already meeting these demands, helping to address the people flow problems such as rising passenger volumes, machine inefficiency, and power consumption,” says Hugo Miguel Ramos, Managing Director, Schindler UAE. Front and centre of this strategy is the company’s destination-dispatch technology – the Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal (PORT) that revolutionizes the management of traffic flow through a building while offering personalised services for users as well as access control for building management.
“One of the most commercially interesting features of PORT is the Eco mode. This mode helps to reduce energy consumption of elevators by placing them on ‘stand-by’ during periods of inactivity; then to improve efficiency even further, PORT will gradually predict these periods of inactivity based
on the usage patterns within a building, thereby increasing the amount of energy saved” explains Ramos. PORT is a pioneering technology that challenged the conventional way of handling people flow in buildings. Similarly, the buildings of tomorrow must be designed for achieving a sustainable future, as is shown
