Development of a system for remote supervision and control of escalators and lifts on the Underground line in New-Delhi (India). All the escalators and lifts were connected through a bus communication system. For this project the following tasks were carried out, amongst others:

1-Preparing a concept for the full communication system (on the hardware and software levels).

2-Definition and conceptualisation of different communication protocols.

3-Development of a configurable system for remote control and supervision, which was installed in each underground station. Each system communicates with different escalators and lifts by means of a serial bus.

Programming gateways as a bus converter, as well as protocols for communication with a previously placed system.

Programming the control of escalators. (Programming of microcontrollers and supervision of motor frequencies and sensors)

Programming displays of escalators.

Creation of specifications, conditions schedules and manuals in different languages.

On-site assistance.

This project was performed for company Kone GMBH.

Development of a system for remote supervision and control of escalators in web technology for Munich municipal authorities. Escalators had to be connected to the transmission network over a LAN interface. The following tasks, amongst others, were carried out for this project:

1-Creation of a requirement specification.

2-Planning and coordination of the project.

3-Conceptualising of the communication system (on the hardware and software levels).
4-Programming the control of all the escalators for adjusting their functionalities at the customer’s request.

5-Programming gateways for converting the protocol and the bus.

6-Support in the development of the web system.

7-Control and supervision of the motor frequency converter, and control and supervision of the braking travel of escalators.

8-Control and supervision of the heater, temperature sensors and different escalator sensors.

9-On-site commissioning
