Mitsubishi's smart RFID-enabled elevators


We're still not huge on RFID-based movement tracking, but we do like Mitsubishi's idea that elevators shouldn't make people wait for them—they should wait for people. An RFID and camera tracking elevator system would be very useful for a number of other reasons as well (security, being one) but they claim they won't have it commercially ready until 2009, which is like, accumulated days of waiting for elevators up in this, funk dat.
