Floor NAVI allows passengers to specify destination floors before embarking elevators and guides them to appropriate cars to reduce the number of floors at which they need to stop. Since passengers do not need to push floor buttons in the car, they can get in and out of the car smoothly even when it is congested. Iconic ring-shaped icons and the chest-high operation panel allow comfortable operations. We used a full-scale mock-up to verify the usability to make Floor NAVI easy to use for diverse people, including those in a wheelchair. Floor NAVI helps greatly reduce the elevator travel time during the peak time, reducing passengers' stress.
