The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has developed an ingenious solution of touch-less elevator control system, which is based on infrared technology.

As part of the local engineering innovation for creating rapid solutions to complex problems, the developers have used an array of infrared sensors to detect the spatial position of the user’s fingers as they pass through the sensing plane. Piloted at one of the elevators at the departures level, the users of that elevator can now wave their hands closer to the sensor to call the elevator at any floor they are standing.

Once inside the elevator, they can point their finger towards a floor number as a command for a designated floor. The sensor can detect interaction from a distance of 0.1-10 cm from the button surface to enable users to make their selection with absolutely no physical contact.

The airport has also restored close to 93 per cent of its domestic destinations having gained back 51 domestic destinations out of 55 pre-Covid domestic destinations, the release added.
