Transcript of Elevators

Elevators The Elevator's Future In the future, an apartment house elevator may be able to ''communicate'' audibly with the passengers and recognize by their voiceprints whether they are the people who lives in the apartment or strangers. If they are strangers they may have to utter a password that the car computer is programmed to accept before they can be taken to their intended floor. And if they are intruders with the wrong password, the elevator will refuse to close its doors and take them up.
Additions to voice recognition systems, some apartment elevators may eventually be operated only by those who have identifying keys for insertion in the elevator locks. A visitor would be given a passkey only after identification by phone communication with the person being visited.
Elevators of the future would also have audible messages to assuage the fears of passengers by telling them, for instance, that help is on the way if the car is stalled. In the case of a fire in a building, firefighters would need to use the elevators, and the elevator car's speaker would automatically issue the message: ''There is a fire on the 13th floor. To leave the building, please use stairways instead of elevators.''
Elevators are plannning to make the elevators go by horizantally other than just vertical way. The control buttons and visual display screens are canted at a level so they can be reached by handicapped and small children, as well as normal-sized adults. The computer-controlled panel's visual digital display system can scroll weather conditions, time of day or news information or messages that alert passengers to equipment problems and tell them what to do in such cases.
