Mr. Nguyen Tu Quang, Chairman of Bkav Group, said: “With the strategic collaboration of technology-leading companies such as Qualcomm and Excelpoint, Bkav will use our competitive strengths to develop the core foundation for the AIoT ecosystem, so as to accelerate the revolution of Industry 4.0 and contribute positively to an increasingly-connected world driven by technology.”

Mr. Albert Phuay, CEO of Excelpoint, added, “We are very honoured to be a part of this strategic collaboration, value-adding to the future of AIoT. Excelpoint started our AIoT journey early, building up strong networks and knowledge within this emerging field. In Singapore, we have set up various development teams to unlock the technology and business opportunities of AIoT, such as Smart Parking, Electric and Automated Vehicles, Smart Surveillance and Security, among others. With our continual dedication and commitment in the AIoT field, we are confident that our collaboration with strong partners in Qualcomm and Bkav will be able to harness emerging opportunities and contribute to the AIoT ecosystem.”

Mitsubishi Electric Building Solutions Delivers 123 Elevators to Large Office Building in China

TOKYO, Aug 2, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Mitsubishi Electric Building Solutions Corporation (MEBS, Head Office: Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo; President: Tadashi Matsumoto) announced today that Shanghai Mitsubishi Elevator Co., Ltd. has delivered 123 elevators for JD.com's new Headquarters building *1 for second phase construction.

JD.com Headquarters (Second Phase Construction)

The building is located in Yizhuang Economic Development Zone in Beijing and has a total floor area of 530,000 square meters. Approximately 15,000 people work in the 19-story building complex consisting of three parts (A, B and C office buildings), including five underground floors. Since many employees and visitors come and go every day, the occupation density on each floor is expected to be higher than that of a typical building. Accordingly, shortening the waiting time for elevators was a challenge.

Of the 123 units delivered, 84 are large-capacity elevators that are usually installed in 40 to 50-story buildings. These units can be operated under a group control system and MEBS's Destination Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) to efficiently transport large numbers of users at once, easing congestion in the buildings and contributing to comfortable travel.

Product Features

JD.com's new Headquarters building is recognized as a smart building with a variety of new cutting-edge building facilities installed, including facial recognition access, IP telephone and web conferencing systems using a high-speed 5G network, and AI-based building monitoring and smart lighting systems. MEBS is supporting smooth movement within the building by delivering elevators that are compatible with group control system and DOAS operation.

1) Group control system to enhance operational efficiency
– This system controls multiple elevators at all times to reduce waiting time and save electricity.
– The introduction of AI maximizes operational efficiency by predicting traffic in the buildings and controlling the number of elevators allocated accordingly.

2) Destination Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) to ensure comfortable travel
– This system eases congestion in elevator lobbies by distributing passengers according to their destination floor.
– By holding an ID card over the card reader, users can register their destination floor in advance and board the elevator without touching the hall button.

MEBS's Elevator Business in China

China is the world's largest elevator and escalator market, with an annual demand for new elevators and escalators exceeding 900,000 units. Although the growth in units sold has slowed considerably in recent years due to restrained speculation in the real estate market, moderate expansion is expected to continue against the backdrop of actual demand for public infrastructure and housing. MEBS will continue to respond to the needs of the Chinese market by providing safe, reliable, and comfortable products and services.
