There is an increase in regulations to provide safer measures for lifts. In areas without regulations, passengers are more prone to unexpected accidents. More researchers are researching into this area. There is a lack of governance for lift safety in Hong Kong. This presentation will discuss my experience to help the Hong Kong Government to develop such a guideline. The design and evaluation of a standardized “lift sensors” development for lift safety application will be discussed. In addition, new concept of smart sensors standards will also be investigated. The smart sensors developed will enable plug-and-play connection of lift sensors in compliance with the IEEE P2668.
