Hyundai Elevator Co., South Korea's No. 1 moving solutions provider, said Thursday it developed a new type of lift that can be summoned by a foot movement.
The company, who commanded more than 45 percent of the domestic market in 2013, said the New Yzer model is the first of its kind in the world to use foot motion detection in operating "machine-roomless elevator (MRL)." The "touchless foot button" system works when sensors pick up foot movement near the elevator's door and summons the lift to the specific floor without the need to push a button with one's fingers. This can be convenient for people carrying large loads in their hands
