Nidec Destination Based Dispatching system utilizes a sophisticated group dispatcher, iCue (developed by Nidec R&D), that computes the floor requests, passengers, current traffic condition, and other factors concurrently and dispatch accordingly. The user experience is enhanced from traditional dispatching and the user interface makes the learning process simple for first-time users. On any DBD floor, users would have to approach a destination input device (DID) which is usually located in the elevator area or at the turnstile area to input their designated floor and for the designated car. This system provides excellent crowd control in the main elevator hall and eliminates traffic congestion.
The Nidec DBD
systems have been installed in various job sites and results have shown a
reduction in time to the destination during the peak hours up to 83%.
