Wonder Step / Escalator

Wonder Step
Wonder Step

While using public transportation, most people are used to stand on the same side of the escalator. However, according to the research, it will lead to severe mechanical structure damage of the escalator. With Wonder Step, not only can we reduce the damage to escalators, but we can also keep passengers from being distracted by mobile phones while taking the escalator.
Combining the touch sensor and NFC technology, passengers can attach their mobile phone to the handrail while taking the escalator. If the connection lasts throughout the period, they can get extra discounts. Providing a safer transporting experience for you!
