TR 93:2021

Data exchange between robots, lifts and automated doorways to enable autonomous operations


This TR specifies the compliance requirements when integrating robots with lifts and robots with automated doors. This TR defines the minimum set of data exchanges, as well as the hardware requirements for robot-lift integration of both digital and discrete lift control systems.

The types of lifts that building owners can integrate with the robots may vary. The most common parameters for consideration are:

- Designate or mixed usage – passenger, cargo or mixed-used lift;
- Number of doors – single door or dual door (front and back door); and
- Site of digital lift controller – within the building it serves or in Internet cloud.

For robot-automated door systems, the types of power operated doors suitable for integration include both swing and sliding doors, as long as they are able to be opened or closed by an automatic door operator. Low-voltage power-assisted doors are not part of the scope for this TR.
