    China Elevator have been around for hundreds of years, but work on a very basic principle. Although the basics of Passenger Elevator engineering has not changed significantly over the decades, small tweaks have been made to make the ride smoother and efficiency has been increased using computer control systems to facilitate quicker transport.

    The elevator can carry persons and goods from one stairs to another. Elevator cars can be of various sizes have at least one door and are pulled up and down using a motor or a hydraulic system. Motorized elevators are the most common and offer the best value for building construction. Elevator shafts also contain guide tracks for the elevator itself as well as the counterweight, both of which help reduce strain on the elevator motor.

    When the selected elevator car reaches the ground floor, the computer commands the electric motor at the top of the elevator shaft to stop gradually. Once the computer senses that the elevator's door and the lobby door are at the same level, it commands electrically powered arms to retract both doors.

    At this point, you may enter the elevator car itself. By pressing the button numbered "65," you have now sent an order to the computer controlling all of the elevators.

    The computer knows you want to reach the 65th floor, but what it actually does is use magnetic or optical sensors to count the number of dots on a long tape positioned on the side of the Panoramic Elevator shaft. The computer will stop the winch with the help of the electric motor if the car has passed enough dots.
