In recent years, the need for monitoring systems utilizing network technologies
has increased. In large-scale international airports, for example, interfacing
with the building and facility management control system has proved to be
essential. In order to meet these requirements, Mitsubishi Electric has
developed a sophisticated monitoring system - MelEye which utilizes
MelEye closely observes the operational status of elevators and escalators
that handle continually changing passenger traffic. This allows building
managers to rapidly respond to changing traffic patterns, thus optimizing the
performance of elevators and escalators and maximizing the added value of
the whole building. The application of the latest network technologies has also
greatly increased the number of controllable elevators and escalators, which
minimizes the cost spent on facilities such as supervisory rooms and monitors.
MelEye is our solution to futuristic building traffic monitoring systems.

Application of web server and web browser
Because the system configuration is hosted on a web
server, the elevators and escalators can be monitored by
multiple computers at any location desired within the
network provided. The use of a web browser interface
allows various functions.
Application of Ethernet *
The high-speed broadband network using Ethernet
facilitates smooth data communication between the
server and the elevators and escalators. Connecting to a
special high-security network enables monitoring from
anywhere in the building.
