Just for waiting / A gravity sensing floor mat

Just for waiting

People who usually use an elevator may recognize following situation. While taking theelevator to a destined floor it stops at the mid-
way point, the doors open and no one stands outside. That is not only annoying but also time-consuming.
To solve the above mentioned problem we suggest a gravity sensing device placed in front of the elevator. You call the elevator as usual and step on the special area, which confirms your call. So the elevator will only stop if someone is waiting for it, which will increase its efficiency and save time for the people.
