Touchless elevator buttons for the post-pandemic world.

Note: This demo is not designed to work with our TouchFree app

We developed a safer touchless alternative to traditional push-button elevator controls for the post-pandemic world. A recent study showed that in March 2020, 71 people in China were infected with COVID-19 as the result of one elevator trip. With 18 billion elevator trips per year in the United States alone, elevator buttons are a major shared surface with potentially significant risks. A majority of people also think that touching shared surfaces in public places is unhygienic.

While elevator controls aren’t complex in nature, they need to be truly intuitive, especially for customers with additional needs. This presents an interesting challenge for our touchless interaction design.
