Elevator indicators

December 05, 2005

From a hotel in Stockholm.


The picture is not horribly clear (I really SO need to get a camera) but there are three vertical columns, indicating three elevator shafts, and the red blurps in them indicate current position of the elevator. The TV was placed right next to the actual three shafts so you get a clear picture of current elevator positions.

Fairly understandable compared to the usual elevator position indicator designs where the current position is either just a number on the display, or one light among many among horizontally placed ones, indicating floors, where you have to do horizontal-to-vertical mapping in your head.
